Flick­er­ing wings

Landscape (UK) - - In The Home -

This stained glass but­ter­fly sun­catcher re­flects the colours of April’s di­a­mond birth­stone. Work­ing from her Staffordshire stu­dio, glass artist Joy Salt uses the Tif­fany cop­per foil tech­nique to cre­ate the lead­ing ef­fect. The pan­els are made from clear di­a­mond-cut glass and iridised tex­tured glass for added shim­mer. The sun­catcher has a small chain at the top so it can be hung in front of a win­dow. They can be used as dec­o­ra­tion or bird scar­ers, as it helps stop birds fly­ing into win­dows. Each but­ter­fly is in­di­vid­ual, mea­sur­ing 12cm wide by 9cm tall. Birth­stone but­ter­fly sun­catcher £11.50, www.folksy.com/shops/JOYSofGLASS
