Stained Glass - Design 001 Photograph

Photograph text - "Circle-In-Square Design by George" ™ - showing a 2 by 2 unit section of a larger piece. This shows glass color and texture mixes used within an almost repeating pattern.

The basic building block, a 6" by 6" square with a 4" diameter circle at the center, is made from 5 pieces of glass. Standard pieces would be made from: 1, 2 by 2, 2 by 3, 3 by 3, and 3 by 4 of these 6" by 6" units. The range of colors and glass textures is unlimited. I usually recommend three to four colors and two surface textures. A template is supplied to help you select the color placements to match your decoration needs.

Stained Glass Design 121 - 6-Pointed Magen David, Star of David, Layouts

I have made a number of Star of David layouts. Below are shown different layouts.

The first image shows an hexagonal window hanging sitting against an interior window in our home. Adjacent sides are 9" apart. The central region contains 12 diamond shaped bevels. Six form a Star of David pattern and the other six complete the hexagonal shape. This inner hexagon is then surrounded with a 1.5" border of Spectrum Medium Blue WaterGlass ®. Within the Spectrum art glass available colors this shade is the closest to the blue usually used for Megan David items.

The outer perimeter of the panel is zinc came, for strength. Hanging hooks are attached to the zinc so it all ready to be placed in your window.

As shown this item is $95 (USD) and includes free shipping via a USPS Priority Mail - Medium Flat Rate Box to anywhere within the USA. Bulk orders, three or more to the same address, are offered at a discount and ship free via FedEx Ground. Contact me for a price quote as it depends on the number ordered.

This item is custom made. The normal lead-time is 1 to 2 weeks from the order date until I ship.

This size panel can also be shipped internationally using the First-Class Package International Service of the USPS. Send me an email if you have an international request as the shipping cost varies by country.

Stained Glass Design 121 Photograph The next image shows a 12" square window hanging. The Star of David is made from 6 diamond shaped bevel pieces. The arranged bevels are surrounded by frosted glass and then a 1.5" border of Spectrum WaterGlass ®. This panel uses a Medium Amber Spectrum WaterGlass ®, color number 110.8W. The border can be made in many colors.

Small Star of David The third image is a square layout at 8.5". The six star pieces are constructed from Spectrum Medium Blue WaterGlass® color number 134W. The glass from the border to the perimeter is standard Glue Chip glass.

I also make Star of David patterns in fused glass layouts. Use your browser back arrow to return to this page. To View a fused glass Star of David layout.

As religious art this design could be seen as a Star of David or a Christmas Star design.

Stained Glass Design HEX - A Hexagonal Bevel Cluster for placement into a hanging

Custom Hex Bevel Cluster This bevel cluster is of my own design. The hexagonal layout is 9.5" across. The layout could be used without a border for a large suncatcher window hanging.

My original intent is to surround this central cluster with a hexagonal border in the 1.5" to 2.0" width range. This would yield a hanging in the 13" to 15" range, measured across opposite sides. The color of the border is decided by the client's taste.

The cluster is constructed from 27 stock diamond bevels, each 1.75" by 3.0". Three of the bevels are cut in half for the small triangular pieces at the center of each side. Thus the hexagonal pattern contains 30 bevel segments. To me it has the feel of some old-time quilt pattern or a Pennsylvania Dutch Hex sign. The large amount of bevel surface yields a very striking visual image in a small surface space.

Stained Glass Design 150 - Rectangular bevel art glass

Stained Glass - Design 150 Photograph

Photograph text - Bevel arrangement, 9" wide and 13" long, using 1.5" wide rectangular bevels of various lengths with a narrow colored glass border. No cement used. The colored border uses Light Purple (Mauve) glass, Spectrum Waterglass ® color number 142W.

The border is usually one of the 6 colors listed in the Spectrum Waterglass ® Colors table which is just below the Designs table. Other colors, such as this Light Purple, are available for an additional small charge. See the Spectrum Art Glass section for all Waterglass colors available.

This design uses multiple bevels in each vertical column, usually 3 to 5 bevels per column. The length of each bevel may vary but the sum of the lengths in each column is the same. Usually there is a pattern to the columns. The photograph shows a design with two bevels per column except in the central column that has 3 bevels. Columns 1 & 2 and columns 4 & 5 are similar but have the bevels inverted vertically.

Victorian Style Leaded Art Glass Terrarium Designs

I offer a number of leaded art glass terrarium designs all having a Victorian "feel". I also offer a lead free terrarium, my Small Garden design. Additional details on each can be found in the fact sheets you can download via the links provided. Each is a one page PDF file.


Stained Glass - Terrarium Design Design One - Crystal Palace:
This terrarium design is an art glass piece influenced by the famous Crystal Palace in London.

The small layout is 16" long, 7.5" wide and 17" high and is shown on the right. It allows the roof section to be removed giving full access to the growing area and the ability to remove the growing tray if desired.

The original layout for this size, is shown in the first three photos, had one arched glass section in the lower wall serving as a small door into the terrarium. This style is no longer in production.

The large layout is built on the same base as the Bevel House (see Design Two). This increases the base footprint by 25% and the lower wall by 2" to keep the proportions the same. It is 18" long, 8.5" wide and 18.5" high. The last two images in this section show the size increase of the lower portion of the two sizes. The upper story is the same height.

The design layout is from "Contemporary Crafts - Stained Glass" by Marc Gerstein and Lynette Wrigley with modifications for execution in leaded came, to use a copper base and to have a removable roof. The interior of the terrarium has a plastic tray inserted prior to attaching the base. The tray is spray painted to match the colored glass. In the photograph the base is hunter green to match the green opal glass at the base.

The lower trim is a green opal glass and the upper curved segments are light green GNA glass (German New Antique). GNA glass is a clear glass with antique lines. Other colors are available.

Stained Glass - Terrarium Design 2 Design Two - A Bevel House:
The second style terrarium is an art glass design influenced by the common bevels used in Victorian windows called "house bevels" due to their shape. The design uses 12 house bevels in all.

The terrarium is 18" long, 8.5" wide and 15" high and is shown on the right. In this design the roof structure lifts off for complete access to your garden. This also allows removal of the interior tray that contains the growing area.

The lower trim is a green opal glass and the walls are constructed from house bevels and half square bevels. The top is clear glass.

In this design the top, the roof, completely lifts off allowing full access to the growing space. The plastic tray, used to hold the growing material and plants, is removable once the top has been taken off. The photo below on the right shows the three components of this terrarium design. In this photo you can also see the copper bottom of the main structure.

There are a number of optional layouts available:

Stained Glass - Octagonal Terrarium Design Three - An Octagonal Garden:
My third terrarium design is a classic shape.

The terrarium is octagonal in shape with each side approximately 5" wide. This yields a 13" spacing of opposite sides and a height of about 16 ".

Like my other terrarium designs:

The lower trim is a green opal glass. The upper curved segments of the base are light green GNA glass (German New Antique). GNA glass is a clear glass with antique lines. The rest of the lower walls are clear glass.

In this design the top, the roof, completely lifts off allowing full access to the growing space. The plastic tray, used to hold the growing material and plants, is removable once the top has been taken off. The photo on the left shows the top removed from the base.

The top is removed by grasping the finial ornament and lifting it off the base.

While the top may look uniform it is a handmade item and only fits onto the lip around the lower section in one orientation. There are small brass wire pieces soldered to the top side and the base side that match. This is shown in the third photo on the right. This photo also shows the small brass corners that are attached to the top sections of the base. These add a decorative look to the lower base as well as providing structures that make sure the top cannot be accidently knocked off.

Stained Glass - Small Garden Terrarium Design Four - My Small Garden:
My fourth terrarium design was initially constructed for a young child's cactus garden.

Since this terrarium was to be handled by a child it contains no lead came and all solder is lead-free. As a cactus garden, there was no top since they like to stay dry with just a little water perhaps once a month. The interior shape is an 8" cube with a total volume of 0.3 cubic feet. This design could come with a flat glass top if desired.

Like my other terrarium designs:

The lower trim is a light brown opal glass, to simulate sand. The upper curved segments of the side walls are Spectrum Light Blue WaterGlass. The rest of the walls are clear glass.

There are two small brass hand holds soldered to opposite sides of the base to allow for easy lifting of the terrarium. These can be seen in the photo on the right. This image shows the copper bottom, the small feet and the hand holds. The photo on the left shows side wall construction.

Stained Glass - Hexagonal Terrarium Design Five - A Hexagonal Garden:

The terrarium is hexagonal in shape with each side approximately 7" wide. This yields a 12" spacing of opposite sides and a 13.5" spacing betweens base points. The height of about 14.5".

Like my other terrarium designs:

The lower trim is a green opal glass. The upper curved segments of the base are light green GNA glass (German New Antique). GNA glass is a clear glass with antique lines. The rest of the lower walls are clear glass.

In this design the top, the roof, completely lifts off allowing full access to the growing space. The plastic tray, used to hold the growing material and plants, is removable once the top has been taken off. The photo on the left shows the top removed from the base.

The top is removed by grasping the finial ornament and lifting it off the base.

While the top may look uniform it is a handmade item and only fits onto the lip around the lower section in one orientation. There are small brass wire pieces soldered to the top side and the base side that match. This is shown in the third photo on the right. This photo also shows the small brass corners that are attached to the top sections of the base. These add a decorative look to the lower base as well as providing structures that make sure the top cannot be accidentally knocked off.
