Nature Captured in Custom Stained Glass
Do you have a favorite animal or flower? Do you enjoy beautifully rendered breathtaking landscapes? Perhaps you simply admire the raw vitality of nature. Motifs from the natural world can bring a personal and dynamic touch to any element of your home décor, and when you combine a representation of nature with custom stained glass designs, the play and movement of colorful, retracted light throughout your home over the course of the day will take on the character of a living creature, plant, or landscape. No matter what space or stylistic requirements you have, custom stained glass windows or stained glass doors by CustomMade artisans can bring a touch of nature to any room in your home, as the following projects will show. Let the wonders of the natural world and the expertise of our custom glassworkers inspire your own home designs.
A Flurry of Life in Small Spaces
Just a tiny bit of space is all you need to capture the full force of birds in flight with a custom stained glass panel like “3 Little Birds” by Because Designs. The movement of the three little namesakes in this 11” x 15” piece seems to radiate from them. The edges of the glass pieces not only mark their wake but also form their trajectories, which emanate from their beaks.
A laundry room may not be the first thing that leaps to mind when you think of places in need of a sense of drama. Nevertheless, that was the client’s request to the artisans of Paulukonis Studio. The client also wanted to preserve her home’s Chinese décor, so together they settled on the red-crowned crane, renowned as a good omen in East Asian cultures, as the subject for this “Messenger of the Gods” stained glass window. The window allows the home’s yard to remain visible even as the majestic bird (made from both machine-made textured and mouth-blown crackle glass) brings good fortune as it picks through the cool blue waters of a stream, which is wholly appropriate for a laundry room.
Adapt to Any Theme in Your Home
Are you looking for the thrill of the hunt or the comfort of a garden? A custom stained glass project can capture any aspect of nature that appeals to you. The “Abstract Tiger” hanging stained glass panel is one of two custom stained glass windows by Christine’s Glass, Inc., designed to blend in with the customer’s safari themed living room. Composed from 700 pieces of glass in 30 colors, this mesmerizing piece changes intensity throughout the day and night as the light changes. In contrast, tranquility emanates from this award-winning “Quetzel” Tiffany style stained glass panel by Artfully Yours Glass Studio. The customer who commissioned this piece wanted a stained glass design that would evoke a sense of femininity and remind her of an English garden.
Nature-inspired motifs have a broad appeal, but your own custom stained glass work by a CustomMade artisan in your area can still capture your personal vision of the natural world and harmonize it with the space and décor of any room in your home. Start thinking of ways you can bring a bit of the outdoors inside today.
