Leaded Stained Glass

Leaded Stained Glass

Zeitz first learned leaded stained glass in the 70's. He can create designs that use either stained glass or his fused stained glass incorporated into a leaded configuration. This stained glass window was made in 1979 as a second use of the original pattern from 1976. A copper foil overlay was soldered onto the lead surface to create the shapes of the trees. This window is now for sale after 28 years in a private collection.  The pattern could also be used to create a new window using the same leaded configuration.
