WINDOW SERIES or ... "small, stained glass"

 
SOLD ... or at the Grovewood Gallery.  It is difficult to keep track because I spend most of my time in my studio!
(Above:  Window CXCIII.  CLICK ON ANY IMAGE TO ENLARGE! Framed 19 1/4" x 17 1/4". $265 plus South Carolina sales tax and shipping.)

I accept all major credit cards.  To order or ask additional questions, please email me at either mouse_house@prodigy.net or susan@susanlenz.com.  My husband Steve and I can also be reached on the Mouse House business telephone, (803) 254-0842.  During the Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show, we can be reached on our cell phones too.  Steve's is (803) 360-3035. Mine is (803) 606-9804.  All three numbers can accept a FaceTime call too. Otherwise, Mouse House is open Monday through Friday from 9:30 - 5:00 and most Saturdays from 10 - 2.  These prices are exactly the same as galleries carrying my work.

Each piece is layers of polyester stretch velvet fused to recycled, black industrial felt.  Strips of sheer chiffon shift and add colors. Then, each piece is free-motion machine stitched with 100% black cotton thread.  Next, holes are melted through the layers using two sizes of soldering irons.  Finally, the work is subjected to the intense heat of a heat gun which melts away the felt that is between the polyester velvet shapes.  Because the thread is COTTON ... a natural that doesn't melt ... the shapes are held together.  Everyone asks about the "fringe".  What is it?  Just excess melted felt stuck in a line of stitching!  Each framed work is just $265 plus South Carolina sales tax and shipping.  I charge exactly what FedEx Ground charges me plus about $5 for the box ... basically, I round up to the nearest sensible amount which is close to $4 to $5. 
 
SOLD!
