Work in Progress, cutting and leading

I am trying to document every stage of my current commission and now the final designs have been chosen and final drawings done I have been getting on with making them. I am doing the 2 side windows first, which are made up of 2 halves (so 4 panels in total)

Here are some photos moving from cutting, to leading, to the soldered panels, waiting to be cemented. The cutting has been made more accurate and easier for me on this commission as I have just brought my self my first grinder, which allows me to get a much better finish to my glass cuts and gives me more ability to manipulate the glass.

    Ooh this is interesting. Seeing those numbered sections reminds of the ‘paint by numbers’ kits when I was little! Do you have corresponding numbered/coloured cut out pieces?

      I number the shapes and the corresponding piece of glass so i can put them all back on the right place and I dont get in a muddle. sometimes there are 10’s of pieces of quite similar shapes of glass. It is a bit like painting by numbers. Thanks for taking a look x
