Pink Bat & Spider Web Stained Glass Window Hanging
This beautiful copper-foiled stained glass window was handmade by me, Tamara Goldsmith in my Portland, OR studio for Redux Collective. This spooky awesome piece was made with iridescent pink glass, iridescent red glass for the bat and baroque clear and white swirly glass for the spiderweb. I also enjoyed doing some of the painted details in the wings, ears and face... I used permanent glass paint for that but let the nuances inherent in the actual glass guide the coloration for web.
It hangs from a black chain about 5 inches from the top and the piece itself is about 12” wide and 9" tall.
60/40 lead/tin solder was used and the border is lead came for the utmost in structural integrity.
All pieces are carefully wrapped to prevent breakage during domestic shipping.
Lead is not dangerous to have in your home in an art-piece like this unless sanded or 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.
