This is a very recent commission from a long time customer in New Jersey, who has since bought a second home in Florida but never goes north early enough to see irises bloom. I thought this was a great solution, and was excited to try out what I’d learned since I made my last iris themed stained glass window in 2011. In short, my same techniques, just better use of them. For making a relief effect on the “spines” of the light petals I caked on the glass powder frit as high as I could and shaped them with my fingers, then used a pencil to make lines in the rest of the frit to make their smaller veins.
