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.
