Scarlet Makaw Leaded Glass Window

Lady and Macaws

Standing on her veranda, surrounded by flowering passionfruit, our Lady occupies a pair of Scarlet Macaws in a fig tree with wafting tidbits as an approaching storm roils the sky and water. Some portions of the panel are plated 4 layers thick, conveying wonderful depth and movement. Most of the opalescent glass used was cast and hand rolled for specific areas. The glass used for the bevel work in the borders has been cast picking up the crimson/tangelo hues in the parrots with custom spun opalescent "pancakes" in the bottom border.
