Recovered Stained Glass

IMG_0011

Salt Lake City annually sends front-loaders and garbage trucks through the neighborhoods to clean up curbside piles of household projects, tree trimming, etc: leading to a possibility for Dumpster Diving. I spotted a derelict old door on a pile of junk at the curb, with an unbroken stained glass panel. I swung back around and put the door in the back of the truck, took it home, and cut the panel from the door leaving a wooden frame to keep the glass secure. Once separated from the heavy old door I set about the more delicate job of freeing the glass.

The panel is out in the sun-room helping ward birds from hitting the window. The center image is an engraved hummingbird with flowers.
