Wisteria Stained Glass Lamp and Geese in Tulips Window

These are two of my husband's many stained glass pieces.

The stained glass geese window is our bathroom window treatment. I don't care for drapes and this gives us privacy and spares the neighbors from getting to know us too well.

The stained glass wisteria lamp was Bryce's most ambitious project; every piece of glass was wrapped with copper foil and soldered. Many of the glass pieces are smaller than a pinky finger nail; they were all cut and fit to make this lovely lamp.
