Painting with glass

Though many of the glass pieces are painted, the choice of this American-developed opalescent art glass also lends a painterly effect. You can see in these robes, the swirls of color in the glass, chosen just so they give the impression of drapery and shadow.

Quite a bit of glass is cut and rejected before the exact right piece is chosen.

The sky colors, too. are chosen carefully for just the right mood and impact.

It's a very time-consuming process, but worth the end result.
