Custom Stained Glass American Flag Hanging

American Flag American Flag in Window The image on the left is of a 13" by 19" American Flag hanging with a bevel border. The panel is set into an American Walnut frame. The actual dimensions of the flag portion are 8" by 13".

The image on the right shows the same panel resting on the upper part of one of our windows. The panel is sized so that it easily fits as a hanging in front of regular window. It can also be hung in an interior space or against a wall.

I also make the panel in a larger size. The larger size has a blue field (the Union) at 7 7/8" by 5 7/8". This yields a flag size of 19" by 11 3/8". If a bevel border and wood frame were added the final size would be approximately 24" by 17".

In either case the blue field, or UNION, is a fused glass segment with 50 "stars". The stars are 1/4" white squares for the smaller size and 3/8" white squares for the larger size. The squares are positioned diagonally on a glass blank and then fired to create a single glass segment. The temperature of the firing is such that the stars are a little raised on the blue surface. This adds to their visibility and yield a 3-dimension feel.

The blue field is Spectrum Cobalt Blue Cathedral glass (136) and the stars are Spectrum White Opal firing glass (200-SF). The red strips are either Spectrum Cherry Red Cathedral (151) or Wissmach Bright Red (18DR) and the white strips are either Spectrum White Opal (200) or Wissmach Solid White Opal (51DD).

The flag region is constructed using the copper foil method so that the smaller parts show better. The copper foiled flag is then mated with a clear rectangular bevel border using lead came and soldered to an outer zinc came frame. Finally, the panel is set into a hardwood frame if desired and a satin polyurethane finish applied.

All my hanging panels come with hooks and hanging chain included.

The framing is available in Red Oak, Natural finish American Cherry at this time.
