There are so many people out there who have fallen head-over-heels in love with Transoms in the old homes throughout the United States. Those lovely, charming, ornaments that sit above the doorways, who's sole purpose was to let air through the house by opening and closing them. Even though their original purpose may have gone by the wayside, even in this day and age we still are drawn to their beauty. I was thinking about this stained glass application awhile back and realized that most of us can't afford a transom in it's original size and shape. After all, they were often times huge! I set my mind to finding and designing patterns that honor the Transom of old, yet are smaller and more affordable. I have been working on my first of a series and will be introducing it in stages. I thought it would be the right opportunity to share with you the steps I take in making my stained glass pieces. Today I'll be sharing STAGE ONE.....
It's a no-brainer really....you either find a pattern or design one yourself. This pattern is the one I chose for my first "Mini Transom". Tomorrow I will be sharing STAGE TWO AND THREE.
So keep your eyes above the doorways of the old homes through this country and abroad....If you see a transom you just can't live without....I'm your go-to artist for a "mini transom" of your very own! With gratitude, Laurie B.
