Stained glass suncatcher Bee with iridescent wings, black & red body and red eyes
Beautiful stained glass hanging window ornament suncatcher (Bee) has been handcrafted and designed by myself using the traditional copper foiling method.
The design is effective with a variety of different glass colours and textures of the glass used, in this case (solid black and iridescent red streaky glass body and clear textured Iridescent wings). Glass globs are used for the eyes (red), the soldering is then cleaned and polished to give a silver finishing effect.
I have taken several pictures to show the difference in reflections on the glass in natural light conditions on different times of the day and on different days also at different angles against a window, on paper background and outdoors.
The Iridescent glass (used for the wings and the red) displays a spectrum of colours that shimmer and change due to the interference and scattering as the observer(s) position changes.
This stained glass ornament (Bee) will make lovely gifts for all occasions or even for yourself.
This beautiful (Bee) measures approximately 12.5cm in height with a wing span of 15cm. A loop have been soldered on the top of the Bee ready for hanging using strong string/thread to your desired length (not included).
