Saint Francis, Patron Saint of Animals Art Glass
By artist Randy Wollenmann
Many stories of kindness surround the life of St. Francis of Assisi, patron saint of animals. His love for animals is evident in this art glass rendered in the style of an antique icon framed with nature and a flock of peaceful doves. St. Francis arranged the first nativity scene and is now represented everywhere as the protector and caretaker for all animals. Art glass, also called stained glass, is created by a unique technique of fusing hand-rolled architectural glass with unique transparent enamels, then kiln fired at temperatures above 1100 degrees Fahrenheit so the colors actually become part of the glass. The shades and hues will stay bright and glowing with radiant color and provide a stunning view from either side. The art glass window is framed in zinc with a hanging chain for window display and a tabletop easel stand to enjoy this treasured piece in any room.
- Window includes acrylic display stand and 9" long chain with snap hooks for hanging.
- Hanging hardware not included.
Caring for your Stained Art Glass:
Any irregularities in your work of art from Glassmasters are inherent in the nature of fine stained glass. Streaking bubbling and striations are characteristic of the hand-rolling process used by glassmakers in the Middle Ages. After the enamels are applied to the glass they are kiln-fired to become one with the glass. Because the colors are part of the glass your Glassmasters stained glass has a lifetime warranty against fading and discoloration. The stained glass may be cleaned with any mild cleaning solution that does not contain any abrasives or acid. Use a soft cloth to dry and polish the surface.
