Decorative Glazing

    [three_fourth]Abrasive sandblasting is a common technique for creating patterns in glassware, creating a “frosted” look to the glass. High pressure air mixed with an abrasive material cuts away at the glass surface to create the effect. The longer the stream of air and abrasive material are focused in one spot, the deeper the cut will be. Sandblasting is often used for removing unwanted items that have stuck to the glass or as a decorative purpose on glazing.

    Etched glass is created using a process called the Leptat acid process. Etched glass has served a unique purpose for hundreds of years, transmitting natural light as clear glass does, while providing a work of art that screens one area from another. Unlike the more typical frosted etch that is produced by an abrasive etching technique (Sandblasting), Leptat creates a deeply etched, crystalline surface of varied textures.

    [three_fourth]Leaded lights or (Leadlights) are decorative windows made of small sections of glass supported in lead cames.

    The term leaded light could be used to describe all windows in which the glass is supported by lead but traditionally a distinction is made between stained glass windows and leadlights, the former being associated with the ornate windows of churches and other such works of architecture and the latter with the windows of vernacular commercial and domestic architecture and defined by its simplicity.

    Since the traditional technique of setting glass into lead cames is the same in both cases, in the late 20th century the divisions between “leaded light” and “stained glass” became blurred, and the terms are now often used interchangeably for any window employing this technique, while the term “stained glass” is often extended in application to any windows, sculpture, and objects d’art using coloured glass.

    [three_fourth]The term stained glass can refer to coloured glass as a material or to works made from it. Throughout its thousand-year history, the term has been applied almost exclusively to the windows of churches and other significant buildings. Although traditionally made in flat panels and used as windows, the creations of modern stained glass artists also include three-dimensional structures and sculpture.

    Stained – Coloured Glass is coloured by adding metallic oxides while it is in a molten state.
