In conjunction with the Delaware Museum of Natural History's special exhibit Rainforest Adventure, Chadds Ford, Pa. based artist Robert P. Horan, has created a four-panel stained glass piece that will be on display through Jan. 6.
The four glass panels are ¾ scale and depict a rainforest scene with animals such as the jaguar, kinkajou, white-tailed trogon, and scarlet macaw, as well as plants such as the blue orchid. Each panel is made up of two or three layers of glass, created at different temperatures, and using various paints and oils.
Horan has been creating works of stained glass for more than ten years, getting his start after suffering a back injury and needing something to occupy his time. The Delaware Museum of Natural History is located at 4840 Kennett Pike, Wilmington. For more information, call (302) 658-9111 or visit delmnh.org.
