Here is an entry door depicting a Ruffed Grouse drumming on a log under Aspen branches. These branches have the early spring Catkins, a natural food for Ruffed Grouse, comming out from the glass as copper sculpture. This gives the stained glass a three dementional look. Even though this is a springtime theme I chose rich earthy browns with a bit of green and gold to portray the early spring just after snow melt and before vegetation growth.
The door itself is made of reclaimed rough sawn lumber and becomes an art form in and of itself. This door was made by Kevin Brick of Brainerd Door and Woodwork and measures 3 foot wide by 7 foot tall and 2 1/4 inches thick. It has an outer glass thermopane to protect the stained glass.
The art work on the bottom 2/3 of the door is copper sculpted Aspen Leaves randomly scattered just like early Spring woodland floor would have. If you have any questions on this or any other project please feel free to contact me through the contact icon of this sit
