Our highly intricate pieces start out as a sketch to capture an image, either real or imagined. An inked cartoon pattern is adapted from the sketch as a guide for glass cutting.
Selected glasses are chosen for color, texture and striation (streak) patterns within the glass.The selected glasses are hand scored and broken into the cartoon pattern’s shape. Careful attention is given to the movement and flow of each individual piece of glass. Our designs may incorporate some antique, fused, carved or hand wrought glasses.
Precise edge fitting of each of these glass segments with narrow alloyed cames allow us to use bold colors and textures while maintaining an uncluttered appearance. These stiff cames are delicately soldered at each juncture. Embellishments of lead, copper and brass are added for unique detail and line enhancement. And finally, an EPA- approved electroplater encases all leads and metals with bright nickel for a brilliant appearance and public safety.
