Unique Creations by Sandy Hartley
Actually, the limitations of stained glass design, how glass breaks [or doesn't] was the beginning of experimenting with no background glass in my pieces. This eliminated those design lines that I felt were too busy and intrusive of the subject at hand. As I pushed the edge with the weight of the glass and the internal bracing wire required in the solder joints to hold it all together.....I pulled the wire from not being seen to being a part of the structural design, strength and support for the glass to hang on....... In my classes, I encourage staying outside the box for new ideas or "Unique Creations."
