It’s been damp and drizzly and chilly in the Midwest lately. I say either fly me to somewhere tropical, or bring on the snow!
Featured today are some snowflakes coming out of the studio. Stained glass work, they are copper wired along the outside rim so they won’t pull apart in time.
The snowflakes with more open design have a spot of dichroic glass at the center. Dichroic glass is an interesting material, originating with the aerospace industry. In a special manufacturing process, metal oxides bond with glass in a vacuum chamber. The resulting material reflects certain wavelengths of light and allows other to pass through. The result is a glowing, eye-catching glass that brings a sparkle to the project, capturing light in a unique way.
