This Votive candle holder is larger than my tea light candle holders. The color is a beautiful shimmery ruby slipper red with a silver dichroic interior. The silver on the inside takes on a faintly lavender color due to the fact that it is layed over the red glass. Sparkling in the sunlight or just adorning a bookcase shelf, this piece dazzles! Heat and gravity have combined to give it this beautiful organic shape. Around the rim, I have fused clear glass frit, or glass crytals. This dish could also be used to hold items other than a candle, such as jewelry, candy, marbles...your imagination is the limit. 4 1/4" X 3 X 2 1/2".
Dichroic glass’ most distinctive appeal lies in having different transmitted and reflective colors, both appearing as completely new shades. The transmitted color is that which we can actually see through the glass. The reflected color is what we see when light bounces off the surface. In dichroic glass, these two colors transform depending on angle of view creating a remarkable play of light.
Dichroic glass is created by the dielectric application of multiple layers of fumed metal oxides onto a glass surface accumulating to a thickness of three to five millionths of an inch. These metallic layers create an “interference filter” producing a dazzling rainbow of transmitted and reflected colors. The applied dichroic coating is permanent, chemically stable, and can be tempered or laminated.
