About a month ago, good friends of ours came to stay with us and brought a fantastic housewarming gift-- old windows that were removed from their 100 year old home in Dover, DE! There were many rectangular windows but the ones that caught my eye were these 3. I scraped, scrubbed, and removed the broken glass and then left them in a corner of my studio for inspiration to strike. A few days later, I learned that I had been paired with Top Drawer, a high end kitchen remodeling store, for the "Window Galleries" during this year's Junebug.
When I spoke with the owner, I was anticipating that I would be able to hang stained glass pieces in his window but when he said that wasn't possible, I immediately thought of these windows. Using hinges to attach them to each other, I created a free standing display. The final twist was to pair them with the cabinet doors the owner offered to me. I used shades of blue glass and a yellow accent in all the windows and cabinet doors and I think they turned out pretty nicely-- let me know what you think when you come to Junebug! My glass art will be in the window at 450 Main St. And if you have any old windows, I'd be happy to turn them into something new and beautiful.
