Bringing the Homestead Home

I thought I would add a few of my newest additions to my portfolio.

These are some room dividers that I made from some reclaimed doors out of our families old homestead.

The first one is a double door set. I made some really fun stained glass windows and put them in place of the old windows. These are done in the "tiffany style" copper foil method of doing stained glass. I used a black patina over the solder. I used a collection of different colors and types of glass for this, as well as different textures. These are some very rich colors and I love just sitting here looking at it!

I also made a single room divider in the same way using English Muffle Glass. On both dividers I added glass "crystal cut" door knobs that really add that special touch!
