A large mature leaf from the Oak tree captured in glass.
North America and China are the home to the largest number of oak types with over 600 species being common throughout the Northern Hemisphere. The wood is known for it's high density and strength plus insect resistance and high tannin content making it a valuable product in many cultures. In the 9th & 10th centuries, planks of oak were used on Viking longships and oak barrels have long been considered the best containers for aging liquors of many types. The oak leaf is a symbol of strength and endurance and commonly used in awards and heraldry. This light catcher will look beautiful in your home in any season.
The repurposed glass is hand trimmed to 2.5" x 4".
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.
