Ogden Ave. School Receives Window

Ogden Ave. School Receives Window

Ogden Ave. School Receives Window! Several months ago Suevel Studios was approached by parents of Ogden Ave. School in La Grange, IL. to see if there was a possibility that Suevel Studios could create a stained glass window that would not only represent the kids, but also tribute a child that had passed away during the past year.

After some consideration and careful planning Suevel Studios proposed that the kids make fused glass tiles that we would take and make a stained glass window. We did this with a wonderful woman from New Orleans, Patricia Muller, who had created fused tiles for Sandy Hook and turned the project into a large stained glass window, which was shown at the Washington National Cathedral.

After the tiles were made Suevel Studios spent time trying out several layouts. The main focus with the tiles was trying to place the tile of the child that had passed on in a prominent place of honor and what better place, but front and center.

Every tile was meticulously placed and soldered in position to create the pattern we chose. After weeks of discussion, glass cutting, fusing glass and building the window, Ogden Ave. School Receives the Window and now stands in a prominent place so everyone can enjoy the loveliness of the window every day.

Thank you Ogden Ave. School for the honor of making your tribute window!

Chicago Wave

After some hard work, a lot of measurements and a little ingenuity George’s “Chicago Wave” is done and mounted in the client’s home.  For those of you that know the Chicago shoreline look at the way the colors of the greens that were used capture the true essence of beach and Lake Michigan.  Its a simple design and yet a very artistic tryptic, a wonderful example of using glass as wall art and not in the traditional way as a stained glass window.   Nice job George, job well done on the “Chicago Wave”.


Suzanne’s Abstract

We have been a little slow getting pictures out there for all of you to see. I figured I better start posting the art that is coming out of our studio; so, to kick things off I’m starting with Suzanne’s Abstract. This was a window she had done a little while ago and she is now working on another abstract in the studio. Her next window has a great combination of colors and shapes like this window, but it also incorporates a fused glass element in the design.  Can’t wait to see the new window completed.
