Stainglass ☼ Suncatcher

In my work with glass cutting, I was inspired by the ancient Mayan civilization artwork known for their high level of aesthetic and artisanal sophistication in both architecture and in decorative arts.

I used 5 different types of glass for the sun and sun-rays then I used the copper-foiling method and soldering ‘beading’ instead of a lead assembly because copper foil is more malleable for curved and round cut glass whereas lead is better for more straight-edge lead structured assemblies.
