Change of Command Gift – fused glass panel

Fused Glass Panel

I created this panel as a Change of Command Gift.  The design is a rendition of the regimental patch for the 27th Infantry nicknamed the “wolfhounds.”  Their mascot Kolchak is an actual Russian wolfhound that lives on base.  I created central element of panel by cutting each piece of glass and then fusing them together under a cap of clear glass.  The lettering was the big challenge.  I built the border border using traditional stained glass methods.  The panel was a gift for the departing commander’s wife as part of the Change of Command ceremony.
