Dickof Window Installation

We installed this window over the weekend. Photos show the installation being done, what other areas of the room look like, and finally how the piece displays (from both the entry of the home and in the wine room) in the normal lighting conditions for the room.

Dickof Commission Window

This window is framed in rough cedar and measures 22 inches tall by 55 inches wide. It will be installed in a transom opening between a living space and a wine room. The clients wanted the image in the center to depict the Texas flag and they wanted a vineyard scene on either side. They had lived in Austraila for several years so the vineyard scenes were taken from Austrailian photos of vineyards. All three circles are surrounded by grapevines. There is a lot of detail in this piece with the use of stained glass, vintage rhinestones, pearl tiles, and glass beads. I included the one photo of the window resting on the cement drive to show the reflections cast with light through the image.
