A large mature leaf from the Silver Maple tree captured in glass.
Native to eastern North America, this species requires more sunlight than most maples. That fact seems to be echoed in the fall when it's leaves reflect a sunset turning from bright yellow before going pale red to dark brown. The trees are also fond of creeks and riverbanks giving them the nickname of "water maples". Due to their adaptibility and fast growth, the Silver Maple is one of the most common trees in the United States. 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.
