Glass Palette

Glass Palette

When brainstorming for ideas of what to make in stained glass, Ted let me look through lots of bins of odd bits and pieces of glass. I particularly liked some scraps of glass that he had etched with a Bauhaus design.

We looked through lots of books in Ted's library, including a rare set of German catalogs on the history of stained glass. Some of the memorable pieces included images of tradespeople, emblematic compositions of tools and still lifes, wreaths and garlands, odd landscapes, and some beautiful glass abstractions by Joseph Albers.
