This beautiful copper-foiled stained glass sun catcher was handmade by Tamara Goldsmith in her Portland, OR studio. This wonderful brown and amber mottled glass comes alive with direct light shining through, accented with cool colors in the stem and some fun wirework details have been added under the mushroom cap. The solder lines on this piece have been given a black patina, and are waxed for a protective, shiny surface.
Hangs from the top with a gunmetal chain.
Measures about 5" wide, 6.5" tall and hangs from the top of the chain to the bottom; about 10" in total.
60/40 lead/tin solder was used and the border is lead came.
Lead is not dangerous to have in your home in an art-piece like this unless sanded, causing lead-dust to be airborne and inhaled or somehow ingested. However, it is always a good idea to wash your hands well after cleaning or handling the piece.
