The main colored glass used is various textured brown opalescent and yellow opaque glass. The solder was stained with a copper patina.
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.
We do not sell any machine made stained glass items. All stained glass items are made by hand in the U.S.A. and signed by the artist.
Dream catchers are one of the most fascinating traditions of Native Americans. The traditional dream catcher was intended to protect the sleeping individual from negative dreams, while letting positive dreams through. The positive dreams would slip through the hole in the center of the dream catcher, and glide down to the sleeping person below. The negative dreams would get caught up in the web, and expire when the first rays of the sun struck them.
Thanks for looking.
