This beautiful Stained Glass Flying Cranes Window is an original design first created for a custom commission. Now it’s one of our favorites!
The Flying Cranes window is hand crafted using the copper foil (Tiffany) method. Each of the 19 pieces of glass is individually cut and ground to size, and the edges are dressed. The edges of each piece are wrapped in copper foil, which is then burnished. The glass pieces are soldered together, the zinc frame is affixed, and the hangers and chain are affixed. After inspection and cleaning a black patina is applied, and then polished. As the final step each window is thoroughly cleaned and waxed.
The Flying Cranes window panel measures approximately 17″ x 17″ and is ready to hang.
