Windows: The Colors of Nature plus Complete Privacy

Trees in the Fall ©Phoenix 2000, Willow Springs, IL

This lovely house is nestled in the hilly woods of old Willow Springs. The owners wanted to repeat the glory of the woods in fall and have those colors with them all year long. In addition, the owners wanted to have complete privacy on this side of the house. Light was not a problem, as the other windows in the walls in this front room admitted light.

We chose opalescent glass. There are parts of over thirty different sheets of glass used in this commission, and much of the glass comes from foundries which have been rolling glass since Tiffany created his scenes of nature. The opalescent glass also shows colors in both day and night light.
