How long does it take to make a stained glass window?

I am always being asked how long my work takes to make, so I thought I would document the process on a straight forward piece, a front door panel for a house in Sidmouth, this is a straight forward panel with no etching or painting involved and is 63 x 63 cm. I worked from 9.15 to 3.15 yesterday with 30 minutes for lunch, and probably another 30 minutes of faffing! In that time I marked out my cutting pattern (full size cartoon of the finished design) and altered bits I thought did not balance properly/slight ajustments to fit the size of the glass etc. Then I took a little break from it to do another drawing/get the kiln going for other work. I always leave a little break between making the cutting pattern and cutting so I can take one last look at it…….then down to cutting the pieces for this large front door panel

I am a stained glass artist working in Exeter and a busy mum of 2; trying to carve a path through the tide of washing and children's toys that stands between me and making beautiful things.
