am fortunate in having a bay window with small panes and wooden mullions that faces
a neighbor's light-colored wall. It is a perfect place for temporarily mounting small
panels to "have a look" and to simultaneously block a very boring view.
Because of this, I have over the years accumulated quite a collection of 7-1/2"
by 10-1/4" panels. They are a good way of making samples for larger works and
for testing out interesting or whimsical ideas without too large an investment of
time or materials. I frequently move them around -- a new view and new juxtapositions
can result in new insights into possibilities in glass design. Each panel can stand
completely independently; with loops for hanging attached, they look splendid in
a larger window, especially when providing a bit of color among plants or something
to focus on when there's not much outside of interest.
