Mistari Maridadi

"Mistari Maridadi", which means "beautiful stripes" in Swahili, is a piece that is made of over 9,715 pieces of handcut stained glass....each piece is usually trimmed down at least 5-10 cuts to allow each piece to fit beautifully, as I lay in my pieces very tight, so thats about 48,575- 91,750 individual cuts to get to the finished piece ! This work took over 337 hours in the studio to complete.
