Can you tell us a bit about these lovely windows? Smiley

These are pieces Kim and I made for the local crafts shows coming up this spring.  The bamboo piece is made with 30 year old Armstrong Glass (when Armstrong was still made in America).

The clear beveled panel is more or less made out of scrap glass that was given to Kim when a fellow glassmaker passed away.  It has a myriad of single bevels, double bevels and textured and iridized clear glass. It's kind of bittersweet for Kim, as the gentleman was a very good friend.  She's sure he'd be happy that it's being put to good use.

Piece #3 I just named "doodle", because I literally drew it while sitting at my desk at work.  I work in a call center, and quite frequently I bring projects to work with me to keep my hands occupied.  People are always stopping by every day to see what I'm working on next.   Grin  Almost every day, I have something different (my adult ADD at it's best.  lol).  I have another "doodle" that I'm working on, but I broke a few pieces in the process.  Now I can't find another sheet of the textured clear I was using and now I can't finish it.  Sad

#4 is a basketweave pattern we've been working on.  The clear glass is actually purple artique and the purple is a rough rolled spectrum.  We have a blue one that we made with 2in blue bevels, but the tighter pattern with the smaller pieces seems to really make the pattern pop more.
