Glass Cross Commission
Follow me, we are going to go through the bones of a commission for glass.
The project is for a Cross that will be the form of the cross
mounted to the wall with back lighting.
Going in the Mont Funeral Home in Platte SD...
The cross is measuring 54 inches long...about 20 inches across each side.
In the initial meeting the discussion of colors for the glass begins the project..along with where it will go. How to place it where it goes and something about what they want to see.
Using a light box and color samples we begin the process of what colors are liked
Really all I got out of them in my initial meeting were some color choices.
She likes 5 colors and wants them in the project. 5 is a bit many to work into a decent design, so this was obstacle number 1.
number 2 is they have no idea what kind of design they want.
So, I have 4 designs. Shown are 4 designs and color schemes that may work for them. With 1 done in full pattern size.
A really pretty jeweled toned plum takes center stage in the full sized pattern. Flowing around the center are the other colors of fall she would like represented. Red, Navy, 2 choices of brown a light neutral shade and deeper brown.
Done in a kind of mosaic fashion.
An alternate mosaic border would be the true smaller version with a mixture of the color roaming around the center plum
this might be a nice pattern too
I was too tired to draw that today and may draw it this way tomorrow
although it is as easy to explain when presenting the patterns in conversation...
so i might be lazy and not draw that alternative...
This would also be well represented if she chooses just 2 of the 4 as well.
