Glass Always Lasts
Posted by Suzi on 7/25/2014
The beauty of glass is that is lasts. It has been shown that glass can endure the tests of time as it has been found in the ruins of ancient civilizations. Glass is probably one of the most flexible materials to work with as it can be used for either heavy work areas or delicate pieces of art. When you are installing custom work in your home or in your office you should be sure to keep glass in mind when you are choosing materials.

Making Dichroic Glass
Posted by Joan on 4/5/2014
The highly unique composition of Dichroic glass does not include paints, dyes, gels or any standard coloring agents to create color. The incredible colors you see in dichroic glass come from the manipulation of light. Complex light interactions, called “thin film physics”, produce the multicolored effect you perceive when you look at the glass. If you would like a clear example of thin film physics in action, think of the rainbow patterns that occur in a soap bubble, or the swirling of colors in an oil slick floating on a puddle. Another example is to be found on dragonfly wings.
Dichroic Glass – The Chameleon of the Glass World
Posted by Joan on 3/27/2014
The word "dichroic", pronounced Dye-Cro-Ick, is derived from two Greek roots, "di" for two and "chroma" for color. So "dichroic" literally means "two-colored." In glass circles you often hear the term “dichro” being used for short, with some folks calling it “chameleon glass.” There are numerous incorrect pronunciations, as well. Another misconception is that dichroic glass is the same thing as fused glass, which would be incorrect. Although fused glass or warm glass may incorporate elements of dichroic glass, it is not a requirement. Dichroic glass is often used as an element in glass blowing, bead making and glass fusing.

Glass TIle Throughout the Centuries
Posted by Joan on 3/8/2014
Glass tile has beautified buildings since ancient times, and as its appeal increases, so does the range of ways it can be incorporated into the design of homes. With the first recorded use of glass in mosaics being as early as 2500 BC, tiles made of glass were not introduced until the third century BC, when Byzantine artists created opaque glass tiles called smalti and used them to decorate walls, ceilings, facades and vaults of churches and public buildings.

Fused glass is one of the numerous forms of glass art, whereby artistic objects are created by melting glass in a kiln. There are hundreds of techniques operating on this principle.
Fused glass is also called kilnformed, warm or kiln-glass, and is a highly rewarding art form. Unlike stained glass, fused glass does not have lead lines and dimensional pieces can be created without having to cut and assemble hundreds of smaller pieces.
