Change of Command Gift – fused glass panel

The design for this panel 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 cut the pieces of glass and then fused them together under a cap of clear glass to create the central element of the panel.  The lettering was the big challenge.  In order to keep the lines crisp, I cut both the positive and negative pieces of glass.  I used traditional stained glass methods to build the border.  The panel was a gift for the departing commander’s wife as part of the Change of Command ceremony.
