This piece was created using the Tiffany stained glass method.
After designing the piece, drawing it by hand or in Illustrator, I choose my glass colours and transfer the design into the glass.
I hand cut each piece, grind the edges smooth, clean them and wrap them in copper foil tape.
After that, I reassemble all the pieces and solder them together using lead-tin solder.
Later I apply patina for its colour and finally polish them for protection and some shine.
Every piece requires several hours to be made.
Due to the nature of its materials and being completely handmade, each piece color and shapes can slightly vary and have some imperfections.
It’s not due to lack of care, it’s just part of the process. But that is what makes them so special! No two pieces are the same :)
Solder contains lead, please keep away from kids and pets, and wash your hands after manipulating it.
