Complex patterns in stained glass


Two suncatchers, both 13.5 cm x 13.5 cm. Both have complex patterns.
The one with the blue border has a central green area held with milliput (epoxy resin). This was inspired by the work of Gaudi the architect, who used broken pottery to cover large areas. Both required a great deal of work to achieve such detail. Tiffany-style lamps are sold locally and the bits of glass are held together using epoxy resin. To be offered for sale at the prices they are, the artisan who makes them must be paid very little. I need to get a level of complexity without too much work.
