"Stained Glass" refers to coloured glass as a material, or works created from this material. Traditionally used in church windows for hundreds of years, stained glass became popular in household artefacts like lamps when Tiffany's began selling them. The binding material in stained glass is Lead.
The process of making an art piece out of it includes:
- drawing a composition on paper, and ensuring that it is suited for stained glass cutting
- using this paper as an underlay, and cutting the glass pieces to be welded together
- using Lead channels to affix two glass pieces next to each other
- soldering the lead as the art piece grows.
The final structure is put witin a strong frame as the Lead tends to be fragile in certain parts.
This chandelier is inspired from the famous works of Greene and Greene. It consists of two wooden pieces, one containing the light, and one being the part which goes on to the ceiling. These two parts are connected together with the help of vegan leather belts.
