When Pegasus Cried (2016)

38 cm W x 91 cm H x 5 cm D (15" W x 36" H x 2" D)

About the design: Inspired by children’s imagination during the “Celebration of Art” hands-on workshop held at Dalhousie Community Association in June 2016.

The yarns: When little Pegasus once cried, having stuck an ambrosia pollen grain up on his nose, right between the eyes, Poseidon had sent helpers to ease the winged baby stallion’s pain. It was too late, however. The cry has had already been heard by Bellerophon.

Execution: The stained glass is made entirely from recycled materials (except for the soldering and the frame) that were collected either from our shop or thrift stores around the community. Copper foil technique; 1/2" copper frame; 3D elements incorporated in one layer; copper patina.

Installation: Hanging on a window or a well-lit white wall.

Light play: Lit through and reflective light.
