Peace Wizard


The Wizard Who Watches Over Me" (by Odat)

Yes I am a little artistic. I dabble in stain glass once in a while. Here's a piece I made a while ago and saved because it's my favorite. I move him around to different windows depending on the season and the angle of the sun. You can't really see it in the picture but his eyes are like crystals and the sun shines through them casting different colors into the room.

Prior to taking classes in stain glass making, I often wondered why pieces of stain glass were so expensive. Now I know. It takes lots of time to cut each piece and put together, not to mention the expense of the glass. I always use colors other than what the pattern usually calls for and I travel all over to find the exact color and type of glass I need.

Peace
