A large mature leaf from the Quaking Aspen tree captured in glass.
This tree with it's slightly heart shaped toothy leaves & pale bark prefers the cooler regions and higher elevations across North America. These deciduous trees grow quickly and up to 80 ft tall. They are the state tree of Utah and flower in early spring bearing tiny seeds embedded in fluff. This species is one that benefits from forest fires or selective harvesting as they don't do well in the shade of another tree. This light catcher will look beautiful in your home in any season.
The repurposed glass is hand trimmed to 4.0" x 4.0".
LIGHT CATCHERS: Our glass has a unique way of handling light and the most popular way of seeing it is through our Light Catchers. With an almost endless collection of nature inspired designs, these squares and rectangles of repurposed window glass can fit in almost anywhere... a window, a porch, a mirror, even a tree. The glass is handcut to fit the original artwork, balanced on the handmade mold and then kiln fired for at least 9 hours. To finish the piece, it is hand drilled, secured to a silver swirl hook and then gift boxed. Ideal for collectors and those who appreciate the uncommon gift.
