A work in progress – showing the three dimensionality of Kent’s work.
“The sharp edges of the glass are ground down, copper foil is wrapped around the ground edges, and then the pieces are fit together and soldered. After the bulging form is designed and soldered, the window is anchored into the frame, flipped over, and the glass is built out and soldered in the opposite way to give it the undulating surface.” By Kent Sandy Larsen.

“My leaded glass windows are bas-relief or three-dimensional, made from glass shards and as-found broken glass dishes, cups, bowls and bottles that I find in thrift stores, yard sales, and scavenge from old desert dumps. In my work I try to take advantage of the contours, shapes and colors of the glass that I find to achieve a brilliant patchwork of color and texture pleasing to the eye while giving the glass a free-form undulating surface. It is as if the window was pushed inward and pulled outward at the same time.” Kent Sandy Larsen.
