Contemporary glass art

These past few weeks I've been busy creating small glass items for the space I rent at Homestead Handcrafts, but what I also have been working on is a commission piece for a friends home.  We decided that I could design a contemporary leaded stained glass piece, using water glass that measures 10" x 27".

I designed the piece and cut the glass over a few weekends. The water glass has a very nice texture to it, which obviously can't be seen by the picture.

This weekend I went out and bought the rest of the supplies I needed to finish it..... It's been 10 years since I did a leaded glass piece and I didn't remember it being that difficult or time consuming :). I thought I could whip it together and be done this afternoon.  Not so,  I am almost half way piecing this puzzle together. I can't wait till I finish it so I can look at it with the sun shining through it!!!
