This stained glass valance design is called The Mill. It was inspired by the Saco River which flowed past the windows of a shop we used to have in an old mill in Biddeford, Maine. The original Mill design showcased the beauty of clear stained glass with different textures and a few pops of color. We have since created different versions of The Mill, shown below.
Whether you want to use clear textures, all colors, or a bit of both, the random sizes of the squares and rectangles look great!
Design: The Mill
Our original Mill design features various clear textures with a few pops of color and a bottom that flows from one side to the other.
Design: The Mill (modified)
We took our original Mill design and flipped it around – using all colors with just a few pops of clear textured glass. We also eliminated the wavy bottom. Same basic design with dramatically different results.
Design: The Mill (with an arc)
This modification of The Mill design kept the variety of clear textures with a few pops of color, but we eliminated the wavy bottom and used the arc from the Noah’s Arc design.
