Dean's Stained Glass

Fred and Sandy contacted me about building a pair of stained glass transoms for their Victorian style home under construction in Pennsylvania. They had created openings on each side of their living area specifically for the transoms.
They liked the above pattern by Bill Hillman from his book "Victorian Stained Glass for Today" but wanted to change the fleur-di-lis central element and wanted to have the vines intertwined as I had done in my "stained glass headboard"
My initial drawing above was close.... but Sandy wanted to change the sun corner elements to vines .... she sent me the corner element drawing above right... and we also modified the fleur-di-lis central element.
Glass colors are always challenging, but Sandy was decisive and knew exactly what she wanted.
Progress as of April 14th.

My resulting drawing resulted in retaining the arch but adding vines in the upper corners, adding a very flowing fleur-di-lis with intertwining vines. On to construction.....
