Morning Glories

Morning Glories: What a cheery way to greet the day! This is a 14 x 16-inch hanging panel comprised of approximately 90 pieces leaded in the Tiffany copper-foil method. It is framed in cranberry cathedral glass with tanzinite-colored Morning Glories. (Cranberry is the most valuable color of glass due to the fact that it is colored with gold salts.) The background is rain-textured, clear iridescent glass shimmering with pinks, blues, and greens. The flowers are mottled opalescent glass in blues, pinks, and purples. The leaves are a translucent, streaky green opalescent glass.
