The Jig is UP!
This is the pattern that Mark and Michelle decided for their chapel.
They came and made final glass selections..they were ordered
In the meantime the working pattern was finalized.
Glass arrived and cut into the amount of strips needed.
Fit into place on the pattern.
Final sanding of the edges to fit the pattern and the jig built to hold everything in place.
Next I foil the pieces...then solder.
I was going to move the whole thing to the light table and give you an idea of the project illuminated
but I wasn't that ambitious
Come back when I am finished I will place it in the window...if it will stay
or on the light table and give you the a glimpse to what will be seen once in place.
The frame needs to be welded...not by me... then mounted on the wall the light source will be electric.
I am going to try my hand at making a film of the soldering process...we shall see how I do..
