Mo' Rockin' Nights (5 Pc. Wine Decanter Set)

This is a 5 pc matching Wine Decanter and Glasses set. The title is a play on words, and refers to "Moroccan Nights" (More Rockin' Nights) because the colors remind me of the amazing colors of Morocco. I would consider this type of stained glass painted work the "cold" glass method.

The Decanter measures approx. 10.5"Hx4"W and the glasses each measure approx. 5.5"Hx2.5"W.

The colors have a beautiful translucency to them that really animates them, (especially when the sun shines through them). I acheive this look usually by blending two or more colors in each section.

To create these pieces, I first lay down the liquid leading outlines, then color each section. The colors are NOT painted on with a paintbrush, I actually use toothpicks(!) to blend and spread the colors around, making sure to go all the way to the edges of the black outlines, and popping out any bubbles along the way.

Some of the colors I used to create this set were: Amethyst, Sapphire, Magenta Royale, Ruby Red, Amber, Slate blue, Turquoise, and Ivory.

I show several photos here from differing angles, inlcuding a closeup for detail. One of the wonderful things about this set is the gorgeous shadows that are cast by the colors in the glass when the sunlight shines through them, which is most notably shown here in the "angled view" photo.
