Stained Glass Nightlight


Typically I’m a fan of opalescent glass for my stained glass nightlights.  This time around I tried a new design featuring  transparent glass.  Once again, the nightlight was completed using the foil technique.  For the final  3D assembly I also got a chance to test out my new homemade panel vice.  If you’re working in stained glass and don’t have a DIY panel vice you don’t know what you’re missing.  I should really post a blog about how to make a panel vice. I guess I’ll save that for the future.

A Nightlight with Warm Colors

I have been in a christmas color color rut as of late.  I’m not sure why, but red, greens, and cool off whites have been making their way into most of my projects.  I’ve been wanting to create something that creating a feeling of more warmth.  I think I nit the mark by combining the warm tones of transulcent red and amber glass.

My goal was to create a feeling of a campfire and I think I hit the mark.  I’ve had this nightlight running in my hallway for a few nights and I love the warm patterns in creates on the walls.

Like all of my work this piece is available for sale over you my Etsy site.  Check out the listing if you’d like to have it for your very own.
