Steve's project

While I was busy sketching, Steve was hard at work in different class: Design and construct a stained glass panel.  This class was held in the Workshop, situated at the opposite end of the campus.

With the help of the instructor, Gary Chaudoir, the final design was worked out and the selection of glass for the various parts of the window started.  Browns for the rock, greens for the grasses, blue water glass for the glass.

The final bit he worked on was the trout.  A rainbow trout has shades of pinks, blues and greens.  The right glass selections would make it come to life.  All the final piece needed was an eye.  Then lots of meticulous work grinding, fitting, foiling, and finally soldering and the panel was complete.
