These lead came panels are all clear textured glass and beveled glass. My friends Bob and Larry from Schaffer Glass have recently retired. They had provided this Naples FL Grey Oaks community home with about half the stained glass panels that the homeowners and the builder wanted. I was honored when they recommended me (Pats Stained Glass) to finish the other half of the home with stained glass panels.
I call this piece "Marys' Cool Horse". Mary had a necklace with an image of this cool horse on it and she wanted to know if I transpose it into glass panel for her front door. I loved the colors and the challenge of the many small pieces. You may remember Mary from another door I had done for her a couple of years back. "The Dream Catcher". Thanks Mary I look forward to our next project together.
This piece was commissioned by Charles Anthony of We Design Inc, an interior designing company based in Greensboro North Carolina, for their clients in Naples Florida. Charles and I worked together during the design process to come up with this nesting egret concept. Charles gave me the colors that would work best with the rest of the beautiful home and influenced the flow of the piece, specifically the cattails and river.
I wanted to show depth in the piece, to show the vast and silent Everglades. I felt it was best to get out of the way of the glass and let it speak for itself with the sky.
I have been designing this piece since the day my great niece Violet Clover Thistle was born, just under a year and a half. Working on it in between my other projects.
Violet had a tough start in life. I wanted her to know how much she is loved by her parents, her brother, her grandparents, her aunts and uncles, her cousins and her whole extended fam damily. This symbol says to her “We cherish you and want you safe. You are strong and you have the power of your family behind you.”
This piece is 37”tall and 27”wide.
The background glass is 2 inch by 4 inch clear beveled glass. The violet glass for the shield is 2 pieces combined or "plated" to achieve the desired color. The vines in the background though difficult to see on the bottom spells out Violet's initials VCT. The jewels in the sword hilts are rubies for Violets birth stone. The frog... well the frog just is.
I showed the final picture with a white background to show the vines better.

Linda and Duane wanted a colorful piece for their new Naples home. Linda had noticed a parrot piece on my website patsstainedglass.com that I had previously done. They both new they wanted colorful hibiscus flowers. So parrots and hibiscus were imagined. I love doing this piece as I had a large "canvas" to work on and could go crazy with color. This piece is approximately 41 inches tall by 40 inches wide. A shout out to Jeff with Mahoney's Handyman for making the installation go so smooth.

Pastor Ted Sauter is retiring after 29 years from the North Naples Church. The new Pastor Mark Caldwell and his wife Tiffany commisioned me to replicate the Stained Glass above the pulpit to give to Pastor Sauter as a retirement present. What a great present!
This was fun. Mary Ann Goodnight Neiderhiser commissioned me to build a dream catcher from a pattern she found. I liked the challenge of this piece. I liked the South West look paired with stained glass. This is Marys' pantry door. It is a focal point when you walk in the front door of her home. Thanks Mary it was fun working with you.
