Old Blue Window is a stained glass piece handmade by artist Nancy Wahlstrom in Sacramento, CA. The frame and glass backing of this piece came from an old Sacramento house that was being refurbished, Nancy found it intact in the gutter. After a week and a half of sanding, staining, and sealing, the search began for the perfect glass. The gold and blues are inspired by the California sky. Colors include blue, gold, white, cream. Nancy’s pieces are abstract and can be hung however desired.
For cleaning use a microfiber towel or a dry paint brush. *Please note the frame and glass are upcycled and may have some wear and tear.
More About the Artist
Nancy Wahlstrom’s wine barrel fell apart. She took a ring and a couple of staves and asked her friend, a traditional leaded stained glass artist, Jackie if she could create a piece of yard art for her. She handed Nancy a box of broken, dirty glass and said, “No, but you can.” That was October of 2017.
Nancy has been playing with glass since, created 25+ commissioned pieces, shipped to Florida, Texas, Ohio, Oregon, and all over California. Her largest piece was 60” x 40" based on images from the Legacy Museum in Montgomery, Alabama. Nancy has probably made between 200-300 pieces to date.
Nancy’s studio is in her backyard, frames are found at garage sales, Goodwill, and construction sites. Nancy works at night, morning, in the rain, and up to 83 degrees. Shards and splinters have taken a toll on Nancy’s hands, yet she still loves playing with the glass. Now being part of the Atrium, brings her full circle, since her first show with UpcyclePop in the winter of 2018.
