Projections from stained glass.

A stained glass panel in a window is lovely for two reasons. First, it is a beautiful work of art which changes its colours with the ambient light. Secondly, sunlight passes through it and projects the colours and patterns from the glass onto nearby surfaces. It can colour the walls and furniture and make light tattoos.

Suncatchers.

Little, portable stained glass windows are called suncatchers. Suncatchers are propped against, or hang suspended in front of, a window. They are not in sealed units. I can carry them around in my bag and use them as samples to show off what I make-I couldn't do that with a big heavy stained glass window.
These are made with camefix. Some of them hold swarovski crystals so they can make rainbows. www.flickr.com

Lightscapes.



Lightscape panels are camefix panels in a sealed unit. They glow and sparkle with rainbow colours, changing subtly with the seasons and time of day. The sun shining through throws splashes of coloured light across the walls. They can hold prisms so the sun makes rainbows slide around the room.

The glass can be engraved with drawings or text so the image shows in white only when you look very carefully; or the images can be made with black paint so they are bold and obvious.

A Lightscape in your window will bring the majesty of Chartres cathedral into your home. It can give you privacy. It will enhance a dull view, but let the sunshine in.
