Window of the Week - Winged Moon
When we moved into our new studio space five years ago, we needed a window for the large transom above our door. After discussing several design possibilities for the 36" square space, we decided upon The Winged Moon.
Inspired by an 1883 needle woven tapestry by Dora Wheeler, The Winged Moon shows a sleeping angel floating peacefully in the sky. The window's border includes stars and pressed glass "moon face" jewels. The beautiful purples are the result of mixing gold into the batch glass and the design takes full advantage of the large swirls of color in the glass. This window can be viewed in our studio.
