Original Stained Glass used as my Studio Logo
To produce the “Black” cathedral glass, metallic gold is added to the lead glass and tin mixture, making it rather expensive to make. It produces a rich ruby-coloured glass ("ruby gold"). Gold in lower concentrations produces a less intense red, often marketed as "cranberry glass". The colour is caused by the size and dispersion of gold particles. This type of glass is no longer being manufactured.
The hair texture was created by cutting a stencil in a rubber material backed by an adhesive coating then sand blasted.
