Product Description

These pieces are handmade, fused, dichroic glass. They are all one of a kind.
Each piece is composed of Stained Glass and Dichroic Glass (the luminous glass).
I take large sheets of glass, cut them into pieces, stack, and arrange them by hand.
Then I fire them in a kiln at 1500 degrees F, where the glass melts and fuses together.
Most pieces are made of at least 2-3 layers of glass.
I love to sit simply in my studio, be present and allow the glass to seemingly arrange itself.
Upon removing the fused pieces from the kiln, I am always intrigued and delighted by the magical transformation that occurs when raw glass melts into unique, brilliant and explosively luminous universes of color and light.

Dichroic Glass:

-Dichroic means two color.
-T
here is a coating on the glass that reflects one color of light and transmits another.
-
These two colors shift depending upon the angle of view giving an opalescent and iridescent effect.
-
The coating is created by using a highly technical vacuum deposition process in which Quartz Crystal, Titanium, Zirconium and other metal oxides are vaporized with an electron beam gun.
-
The vapor floats upward, attaches and condenses on the surface of the glass in the form of a crystalline structure.
-
There are at least 30 layers of these materials yet the coating is only about 35 millionths of an inch thick.
