Stained Glass Painted Tiger
Made by shop owner, Tamara Goldsmith, This unique piece is one-of-a-kind, handprinted, designed, hand-cut, copper-foiled, and assembled using a traditional Tiffany method in her Portland, Oregon studio.
Stained Glass, a technique relatively unchanged for hundreds of years, is the ancient art of assembling cut, mineral-infused, handmade art glass together with lead/tin seams. This piece has also been painted with additional details on the front only. 60/40 lead/tin solder was used and the border is lead came.
The piece will be carefully wrapped to prevent breakage during domestic shipping.
It hangs from a blackened chain about 5 inches from the top and the piece itself is about 14” tall and 10” wide.
Lead is not dangerous to have in your home in an art-piece like this unless sanded or causing lead-dust to be airborne and inhaled or somehow ingested. However, it is always a good idea to wash your hands well after cleaning or handling the piece.
