Nearly all my stained glass pieces are suncatchers which hang from a hook.
I do make the occasional non-hanging piece… I’ve made candle boxes, business card holders and more recently I make a stained glass Cockeral, always called Richard, which stands up.
Richard l lives on the windowsill in my living room and only falls over when pushed. Richard ll - Vl have flown off to their forecever homes.
The other day, someone who had seen Richard V at their sister-in-laws asked if I could make a standup for her… but an Owl.
Making the Owl is a doddle.
Making it stand up a challenge.
I promised her I would get back to her today with a design and a price.
I realised belatedly I couldn’t give her a design first as I had no idea if it would work, standing up, until I had tried it.
So I did and I just hope she likes the design and the price. (£24 + P&P)
I have no idea where I got the chunky green blocks which I’ve used for the stand but I hope she doesn’t want another standing owl as I have no more of them.
I’m really rather pleased with it but can’t show it off as she contacted me through Facebook so can’t put it on my page as it’s a present for her husband so I’m just checking on here that it’s ok before I show her ?
I’m also wondering if other people have the same problem of having to make something first before you can work out how much it should be and more importantly if you can actually make it ?
