stained glass


It’s gorgeous actually.

Artist dark solace is responsible for this amazing stained glass Claptrap from Borderlands. The vents in the front and on top are actually open, the eyes are made from wine bottles, and the arms are constructed from a copper pipe.

His work is really incredible and my only complaint is that this gorgeous lamp is not on Etsy…yet. Then again, it took five months to complete so I wouldn’t expect it to be affordable.

R2 units are pretty darn versatile. I mean, they can hack into moon-sized space stations, pilot X-Wings and even slice open nets with tiny buzz saws. Now, thanks to Dickie from Etsy shop Master Glasster, R2 can even transform into a stained glass lampshade!

While this R2 lampshade is currently unavailable in the Master Glasster Etsy store, it doesn’t hurt to inquire about a custom order.

white tree of gondor

You don’t have to travel to New Zealand to add a little Middle-earth to your life. You can do what Lord of the Rings fan Mehmet did and install a geeky stain glass door in your house. The glass features the White Tree of Gondor in all its glory, and I wouldn’t mind having one just like it in my house.

Hawkeye stained glass 1

Clint Barton’s often misunderstood and beat up in the current comic series by Matt Fraction and David Aja. You can’t help but like this version of Hawkeye, and Tumblr user panovanator is definitely a fan. She recreated an image from the comic featuring Barton drinking straight from the coffee pot in beautiful stained glass. If you’re near Berkeley, California, you’ll be able to see the piece in person at Fantastic Comics.

This chandelier was handmade by Mason Parker of Mason’s Creations. It’s simply huge, measuring 4′ across with tentacles that would each be 30″ long if you set them out straight. You can light up just the body, just the tentacles, or the whole thing for a freakishly beautiful centerpiece for your room. This one is sold, but he’s making another if you have the cash. Once it’s ready, the chandelier will retail for $18,000.

hellraiser glass 1

Stained glass normally has words like “elegant” and “beautiful” associated with it – not this time. This scary piece by artist Nicole Cantú features Pinhead from Hellraiser with the mysterious puzzle box – and it’s 3D. The head and box come off the flat surface. It gives me chills. The artist created the piece for the “Something Spooky” art show at Guzu Gallery in Austin. I think it lives up to the show’s title.

If you happen to be located in Austin, you purchase this treasure for $8,000.

The uber talented Michael McClane is at it again with a gorgeous stained glass design. He’s created a lovely panel featuring the ever popular Mandalorian, Boba Fett. It’s 30″ tall and 8″ wide, and it was cut and assembled so it looks like a Tiffany Lamp. Yes, it does match his stained glass Boba Fett helmet lamp to a tee. If I were rich and less of a klutz, I would cover my house in panels like this!

This amazing Tiffany-style stained glass lamp was made by DeviantArtist mclanesmemories. He built Master Chief’s helmet in 40 hours over the course of two weeks and has put it up for sale at a fairly reasonable $840 (given the work put into it). The lamp features a full-sized helmet shade that measures 9″ tall x 9″ wide and 14″ front to back. I think Master Chief would approve.

It feels silly to call a piece of glass armor, but this stained glass does show off Iron Man’s armor in beautiful detail. Etsy seller Martian Glass Works says it’s the most complicated piece he’s ever built. It includes 334 pieces of glass and took over 100 hours to put together. At 9.5 square feet, the crafter will have to build a special crate just to ship it.

You can bring this gorgeous Iron Man home for $4,500.

Check out a few more nerdy stained glass designs from his shop after the break.
