It was made using a purple and white textured opalescent glass. The solder surrounding the Cross was stained with a black patina.
The Cross can be made in any color glass of your choosing. Let us know the color and we will see if the glass is available.
This stained glass item was constructed using the copper-foil method. Each glass piece was hand-cut, ground to fit, and then wrapped in copper-foil. The pieces were then soldered together. This is an art that is centuries old and can never be imitated by modern technology. Most common in Ireland, Wales and Scotland, the Celtic cross is a symbol of both faith and ethnic heritage. The circle symbolizes eternity and God's endless love for man. Legend says that while preaching to the lost, St. Patrick was shown a sacred stone marked with a circle that was symbolic of the moon goddess. He drew a Latin cross within the circle and blessed the stone, making the first Celtic cross.
We do not sell any machine made stained glass items. All stained glass items are proudly made by hand in the U.S.A. and signed by the artist. Due to the size of our sun catchers and panels, they should not be hung with suction cups. We suggest that you attach the clear fishing line or chain to the top of your window and secure with a nail or screw. This will keep the stained glass secure.
Thanks for looking!
