Stained, leaded glass
Separate intricate glass shapes are joined with soldered metal seams.
Refined, hand-cut and polished facets on the edges of plate glass (colored or clear) are incorporated into designs.
Stone wheel engraving
Hand-cut and polished small-scale designs embellish the window pieces.
Glass-bodied paints and enamels, kiln-fired at 1050° – 1325° F, are added to create further design and detail.
Designs are sand blasted in numerous “stages” or depths on plate glass.
Primitive faceting is done on plate glass with hammer, chisel, and anvil.
A mild acid cream is used to add light apparent texture and design to the glass surface.
Kiln formed glass (warm glass)
Layers of primarily (though not exclusively) sheet glass are bent / formed over clay molds in the kiln at 1500°.
3D structural and / or decorative metal is made by investing clay models in refractory cement (Ultra-Cal), then casting.
