Soldered Art- Stained Glass

This is a stained glass candle holder I made using a 6" black plumbing pipe with a pattern attached to it. I worked in the round cutting, grinding and affixing the pieces with tape as I went. All pieces were copper foiled, fluxed and then soldered together on the outside first. I then removed the black pipe and pattern and soldered further on the inside. I cut a 6" circular piece of glass for the bottom and foiled and soldered that on last.
I use a pillar candle inside to illuminate at night or put in a window during the day and enjoy the light that comes through. This is my entry for Saturday's Workout (Soldered Art).
