Round Stained Glass Pattern Lighthouse Assateague Light Virginia
“Go into the open sea, catch a fair wind, choose the right course, follow the light of the lighthouse. If a person has the opportunity to lead an unusual life, he has no right to refuse it” (Jacques Yves Cousteau).
What symbolizes your future catcher of the sun the lighthouse? What is his story, read on?
If you are interested, I have a ready-made suncatcher of this lighthouse,
made in a combination of two stained glass techniques – Tiffany and Fusing glass.
I made a simple but effective design of the stained glass pattern that even a beginner can do.
Ready suncatcher, you can decorate the interior of the room by hanging it in the window. And yet, it can be made as a gift to a loved one.
Assateague Light is the 142-foot-tall (43 m) lighthouse located on the southern end of Assateague Island off the coast of the Virginia Eastern Shore, United States. The lighthouse is located within the Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge and can be accessed by road from Chincoteague Island over the Assateague Channel. It is owned by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and operated by the U.S. Coast Guard and is still used as an active aid in navigation. The keeper’s quarters are used as seasonal housing for refuge temporary employees, volunteers, and interns. Constructed in 1867 to replace a shorter lighthouse 45-foot-tall (14 m) built-in 1833, the lighthouse is conical in shape and is painted in alternating bands of red and white.
The grounds also contain a keeper’s house and an oil house.
The lighthouse is depicted on the 2003–2004 Federal Duck Stamp, designed by Ron Louque.
The light is open for public tours on weekends during the summer.

Color JPG file
– Painting stained glass with a pattern. Will help you figure out the color combination. Any glass can be used. I work with SPECTRUM and Wissmach glasses. And in some patterns, I give the layout according to the recommended glasses.
I have already taken care of the scale and here are the optimal ones (in my opinion :)) After purchasing, download the PDF file, print it on an A4 sheet, and glue it with labels. And you will get a full-size stained glass window, which is already there, with which you can work immediately. This is probably the best way to get a physical pattern from an electronic file.
SVG vector file
If you need a different size for the pattern, it’s easy to do because I put it in the SVG file.
Easily change the picture’s proportions, the thickness and color of the lines with one movement of the mouse, scale to the desired size and perform all these operations without losing the quality of the picture.
Any vector graphics program is suitable for working with SVG. Freeware is the Inkscape graphic editor.
How to download the pattern after purchase, you can see here.
