Custom Bradford Arrow by Denninger

"Bradford Arrow" with stained (cathedral) glass

This weather vane "happened" when we went to Judi & Mike Bradford's house to "demo" a cupola for their garage. They were buying the cupola and weather vane as a gift to each other for their 10th anniversary. They liked our Stanford Arrow very much, but really wanted to fancy it up in some way. Al suggested, "Let's put some stained glass in it." An idea popped into Beth's mind about incorporating hearts into the design in honor of the special event. A few sketches later she came up with the now famous Bradford Arrow.
