In 1995 in the small town Sumy located in Ukraine the story of making beautiful glass goods began, where the art of working with stained glass using Tiffany technique was unknown over the country. Thus the "Pyvovarov" Studio was born.
Nowadays we produce a high range of glass products: stained glass wall hangings, glass mosaics, Tiffany style lamps, stained glass suncatchers, stain glass panels and other stain glass décor. And we continue to move forward towards implementing new ideas and technologies.
We've developed and patented the technology of manufacturing glass mosaics, which could be used in private interiors as well as in churches and temples.
Work of qualified and creative masters combined with using high-quality materials and modern equipment gives us an opportunity to fulfill the potential of our capabilities for implementing projects of our customers from all over the world.
STAINED GLASS DECOR
Art is eternal. Stained glass art work is eternally beautiful. Why is it so? How is it created? Today all answers will be revealed.
HOW DO WE MAKE STAINED GLASS IN GLASSARTSTORIES
Stained glass art creation is a long process, which requires skills and high concentration. That is why our talented masters do their best to create stained glass art items. The first step in creation colored glass art is making a sketch. We use Adobe Illustrator to make the stained glass art design and then print it out to make the pattern on the glass. After that, we have to cut the details according to the patterns we drew previously. We use special cutters and pliers for different sheets of glass. Once it is done, we proceed with sharpening every single detail on the grinding machine. This process is essential to make the pieces of one stained glass product perfectly fit together. The next step masters take is wrapping grinded glass pieces into copper foil. This is a time-consuming process as the foil should perfectly stick to the glass piece and be even. What we do next is the process of soldering. At first, we use acid and apply it to the space link of the wrapped details. And then we solder the stained glass pieces to make them a one single art product.
However, this is not the end of the manufacturing making ready stained glass art for sale. After soldering we clean the glass art item, apply wax and patina. And if you think it is the final process, you are mistaken! Some items have the details which are impossible to reflect with the stained glass, and we paint some lines or spots on suncatchers or panels for windows. And only after that, you can buy stained glass art pieces created by GlassArtStories in our online shop.
