DarkeVitrum's Profile Picture
Artist | Hobbyist | Artisan Crafts
United States
I started teaching myself stained glass in 2014 just as something to keep me busy in rural Ohio, however it has quickly become more of an obsession. I am slowly trying to start my own stained glass business, and while it may be a bumpy ride fraught with learning experiences, I have hope that it will be worth it. Every piece I make, I try to incorporate a new technique, and add ever more detail into my pieces. While I'm not that much of an original artist, I really enjoy the challenge presented by trying to render the digital and cinematic world in stained glass in as exacting detail as I am able.


Dice Tray
Headed to my first D&D this weekend and realized i needed a dice tray. I'll make a proper one from wood when I have more time, but I needed one right away so i made this quick piece from glass in the mean time. only 7 pieces of glass, the design is made from a foil overlay and solder.
8Bit Chicken
This 8bit chicken is a modified perler pattern that was a monster to foil, but I'm quite happy with the results. It's 44 pieces and roughly 4.5" square. My intent was the chicken from Zelda, but have been told there are several other games it can run with too, so I'm just going with 8Bit Chicken.
Vault-Tec Ornament 3.0
This is the third and final version of this Vault-Tec Ornament, fianly completely happy with it now that I have the circles in the center whole.

It consists of 23 pieces of spectrum glass and uses copper foil work for the the text and copper wire for the fine panel lines toward the center. It measures roughly 4.5". As always, the back side is sandblasted for translucence. 
Hylian Shield Suncatcher 1.0
This is the second suncatcher sized piece in the Zelda series that I am working on atm. It comes in at 66 pieces; 8.5" high, 7" wide . It's all spectrum glass, with foil overlay for the filigree at the top. The part around the TriForce (which is left silver, but hard to see that here) is where things get really tricky. The original model I pulled from Twilight Princess shows that with 3 rivets and what looked like wired or something wrapped around them for decoration so, that's exactly what I did. you'll have to check my DarkeVitrum Facebook page for an angled shot for close detail. I used like a 4gauge copper wire for the rivet and wrapped 16 guage around those 'rivets' and the triforce. I feel it came out pretty beautifully. I had everything cut out and I ended up starting the foiling all the way to the completion in a mega 10 hour stream on Twitch. Exhausting, but so, so, worth it!
Wonder Woman Panel
   My very first actual panel! 75 pieces @10" square. I don't have came for the border so I did my best on it, but otherwise, I don't think I could have done any better than this one. This took loosely around 12 hours to complete. The pale parts are actually a more pale yellow but show more clear with this lighting. I had done one of the classic logos in an ornament size for an Etsy order, and viewers all wanted to see me do the new logo. I looked at it and didn't want to do what others were doing, so I based this piece off of the suit itself. As always, the backside is sand blasted for translucence. Loving the new light pad I got for the even lighting.
