Chantal's Stained Glass Patterns

Chantal's Stained Glass Patterns
The original stained glass patterns and designs on my site are different from the pdf patterns posted by stained glass suppliers wishing to attract customers. They are pen and ink drawings and designs with little or no digital processing. I sincerely believe that a hand-drawn stained glass pattern gives more convincing, natural-looking results than those that are made digitally. There is a certain quality that the hand can achieve, but stained glass design software can never hope to achieve, and that translates into warmth in the finished product. I have set up this website to provide the visitors with easy navigation. However, this limits the number of patterns I am able to feature within this format, and I now consider "Chantal's Stained Glass" to be full.

Yellowstone Is Rising on Swollen "Supervolcano" November 8, 2007 Yellowstone National Park is rising. Its central region, called the Yellowstone caldera, has been moving upward since mid-2004 at a rate of up to three inches (seven centimeters) a year—more than three times faster than has ever been measured. The surface is inflating like a bellows due to an infusion of magma about 6 miles (10 kilometers) underground, according to a new study published in tomorrow's issue of the journal Science.

Yellowstone Has Bulged as Magma Pocket Swells The simmering volcano has produced major eruptions—each a thousand times more powerful than Mount St. Helens's 1980 eruption—three times in the past 2.1 million years. Yellowstone's caldera, which covers a 25- by 37-mile (40- by 60-kilometer) swath of Wyoming , is an ancient crater formed after the last big blast, some 640,000 years ago. (See "When Yellowstone Explodes" in magazine.) Since then, about 30 smaller eruptions—including one as recent as 70,000 years ago—have filled the caldera with lava and ash, producing the relatively flat landscape we see today.
