Stained Glass Bird in Tree Bathroom Window

PICTURE ABOVE IS DRAWING
This stained glass tree is one of my favorites. The drawings I provide my clients are actually scaled to the dimension of the window to be made. The same drawing is used as a pattern when putting the stained glass piece together. So the image in the drawing is going to be almost exact as the finished stained glass piece. The colors, however, show differently on paper than in actual stained glass. My client will give me a starting color pallette prefered for the project. This provides a perfect starting point for when the actual glass selection is made from glass samples once the final drawing is approved.
PICTURE ABOVE IS ACTUAL WINDOW
It is installed above the bathtub so privacy is very important for the homeowner. I love using double gluechip glass because it is so beautifully neutral and provides the best obscurity. The use of clear textured glass for backgrounds, in my opinion, makes the design more defined. The glass colors were chosen to match the granite installed in the showers and bathtub areas.

  2. For some reason, I like the bottom one better. The top one soars; the bottom one looks strong and anchored. They go well together. What is the "E" for--the client's initial, perhaps?

  3. The bottom picture is the actual window. The top is the approved drawing and the "E" is the times I modified the drawing for the client (A,B,C.....)
