Stained glass feather: how is it made?
The glass feathers presented in our shop are the result of the painstaking work of experienced craftsmen, each of which has a unique design and character. To make the suncatcher become an attractive decor materials for its handcrafting should be of high quality. It concerns stained glass, tin, patina and copper foil. For our products we use stained glass only of the well-known manufacturers such as: Spectrum, Wissmach, Uroborus because only they are able to produce the glass which will truly reveal the beauty of the future products.
The process of handcrafting stained glass feathers is based on the technology of the American artist and designer Louis Comfort Tiffany of copper foil, which includes several steps:
- First of all, the master comes up with the design for the future suncatcher and draws a sketch breaking the feather on details.
- Then follows the selection of glass of the desired shade and structure. The glass for feathers could vary from translucent to opaque and colors - from bright multi-colored to pastel shades according to the preferences of buyer and surrounding interior.
- The glass is cut on details according to the previously designed sketch, the edges of each detail are carefully ground and neatly wrapped in copper foil.
- Stained glass details are soldered together, forming a complete product with smooth transitions from one detail to another.
- Finally, the feather is need to be cleaned andits’ trims are covered by patina of the needed color.
As a result we receive an eye-catching stained glass decor with interesting shades and accurate trims. Textured translucent glass elements “pick up” the rays and, refracting them, scatter in the form of multi-colored rays and highlights. The simple optical effect, underlying stained glass, fills the room with a magical glow.
