Elephant window for the Ivoryton Library

This custom stained glass window panel was created for the Ivoryton Library as a gift in memory of the Town Historian. It is fitted into a transom-style space above French doors between adjoining rooms in the library.

Elephants are the major theme of the library, as the history of the town includes a piano factory, which used ivory for the piano keys.

The panel measures approximately 10 by 34 inches and depicts two elephants in a greeting, entwining their trunks. The amber and purple glass in the panel were taken from an old window saved from a renovation. The library dates back to 1889, so you can imagine how thrilling it was to be able to reuse the old glass.

On either side of the stained glass panel are 4 pieces of decorative calligraphy by Adrienne Samuelson, of Centerbrook, Connecticut.

Irish Setter Stained Glass Clock

Yet another new addition to our stained glass dog breeds, an Irish Setter clock. This variation on the clock style seen in earlier designs has the Irish Setter’s head off to the side, creating a longer, lower base, with an Art Deco flavor. Earthy green and amber stained glass was used for the background to set off the mahogany colored glass of the Irish Setter’s head, an homage to its country of origin, Ireland. The base of this stained glass clock measures approximately 12 inches.

Field Spaniel Stained Glass Votive Candle Holder

This is a Field Spaniel in stained glass. Originally, this piece was made to be a votive candle holder, but other uses can be a catch-all for paper clips, rubber bands, pens, etc. Or, it can be used as a holder for a small potted plant such as an African violet. The base measures 4 inches square, the sides are 3 inches high, and the front is 4 inches high. Any dog breed can be depicted.
