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.




About MCaron

My name is Michelle Caron and I have been working with glass for over 20 years. My studio is in Kane'ohe, Hawaii, on the windward side of the island of Oahu. My passion for exploring glass started during a year spent in France. The kaleidoscope of vibrant colors that filled the Gothic cathedrals grabbed my imagination and never let go. Each project offers opportunities to develop techniques in order to meet new challenges. I find that curiosity, patience and persistence are key to exploring this multifaceted medium. It is a journey that is never dull.
