I'm reasonably happy with the pattern, but I do wish I'd taken that border of rectangles at the bottom and run it all the way around the piece, shrinking the rest to fit. It would have given it a more traditional and finished look. Ah well.
Below is the piece, propped up in the window. When it's installed properly, it'll be two inches higher, filling the space.
And here it is close-up. It was my teacher's suggestion to use richer tones in the center and paler in the border, to make the central motif pop. It certainly pops, but I'm honestly not sure if I like it -- I sort of wish I'd done it all in the rich tones. Though this will let through more light, at least. Thoughts?
And this is the new pattern I designed, modelled on rose windows. It's for replacing the foyer stained glass window that I don't like.
I've cut out the pieces of paper, taped them to the glass, and am in the midst of cutting the glass. I hope to finish glass cutting at studio today (2-4), and then start leading tomorrow at class (1-3). I think I like this pattern -- it's not quite as perfectly symmetric as I'd planned, but ah well. And it ended up more of a star than a rose -- a star-rose hybrid? I kind of like that, actually.
