Description

21/2 -inch handcrafted fused dichroic glass cross.

The word "dichroic", pronounced dī-ˈkrō-ik, is derived from two Greek roots, "di" for two and "chroma" for color. So "dichroic" literally means "two-colored."
The most distinctive feature of dichroic glass is that it seems to have more than one color, especially when viewed from different angles. For example, a particular formulation will appear blue, but shift the dichroic glass slightly and the color will transition to green. A misconception is that dichroic glass is the same as fused glass or refers to the entire fused glass movement. Though fused glass or warm glass may incorporate dichroic glass elements; doing so is not a requirement.
Dichroic glass does not use paints, dyes, gels or any standard coloring agents to create color anymore than a prism does. The fantastic colors are created through the manipulation of light. The multi-colored effect is the result of complex light interactions called "thin film physics". Thin-film physics are also responsible for rainbow patterns in a soap bubble, the swirling colors of an oil slick floating on a puddle and the dramatic reflections in dragonfly wings.
Dichroic glass is created by vaporizing various metallic oxides in a vacuum chamber, using a high-voltage electron beam, and allowing the molecules to be deposited onto the surface of a blank sheet of usually clear or black glass. The complete process may require from 15 to 50 distinct layers (steps) of alternating metallic and silicon oxides. The deposited oxides have no intrinsic color themselves, instead it is the physical properties of the metallic oxides in the dichroic glass that cause different wavelengths of light to either reflect or transmit more than others. These properties cause certain light waves to be reflected while others travel through the glass along slightly different paths thus causing the color shift we observe. Most dichroic glass uses both transmission and reflection of light to achieve the desired effect so that as you rotate a piece of dichroic glass, even slightly, you'll see a shifting rainbow of colors. Each piece is completely individual and unique. Dichroic glass is more expensive than regular glass, but it makes beautiful and unique fused glass pieces.

FAQs

General Information:

Please be careful not to torque or pinch glass while unwrapping or handling your new piece of stained glass. Do not pull wrapping apart but cut with scissors. It’s best to balance piece in the palm of your hand, the cantilevered pieces are very fragile.

Panels are best kept upright or vertical.

Be sure to wash your hands after handling as it’s leaded.

To clean your glass, mild dish soap is best. Oxidation of lead can be corrected with glass wax.

Although very durable, it’s probably wise to replace the mono-filament yearly as it gets brittle and stretches in the sun. .A surgeon’s knot is recommended as a strong knot.

Enjoy your stained glass, it can be an heirloom if handled gently.
DAMAGED ITEM:
