Metropolis piece, leaded up

I never thought I'd see the day! I've finally gotten all of the firings done on the Metropolis piece and got it leaded up yesterday. I'm pleased with how it came out.

It's the biggest panel I've ever made, over a meter tall. I'm going back to the studio today to cement this piece, the repaired Dragon and Girl piece, (I don't know if I mentioned, the wing piece of the dragon got broken when the piece was being framed. So I had to take it apart, re-do the wing, and get it all leaded up again. I finished it all yesterday as well) and the four angels playing instruments panels I made for the Parade Artists Christmas show

The four angels are on flash glass, which was acid-etched and then painted & fired. I added enamels on the dresses and hair, and silver stain on the halos and stars. Unfortunately the picture really doesn't do it justice, I'll have to take more pictures after I get them all cemented and cleaned.

So, the Christmas show, It's the first time I'll be showing my work in public! I'm going to be showing the four angels, the Metropolis piece, the Dragon and Girl piece, and several sea shells pieces (which The Scotsman is busy framing, he's so cool!) Last but not least, I'm also going to be selling these snowflake pieces I've made with acid-etched flash glass and textured glass:

Hopefully someone will buy something! Wish me luck....
