Dalles de Verre Burst


This custom window is a monster of color. The window is constructed out of what is called Dalles de Verre glass. Dalles de Verre is glass that was used a hundred years ago as stained glass inserts into a wall, held in with mortar (same as modern clear glass block). It is 1″ to 1 1/4″ thick with a slight texture. What we did is custom bevel every piece by hand. More than 60 hours went into this window just to hand bevel¬†every thick piece of glass.¬†Built out of zinc came. This window is about 40 lbs. and took a lot of time, but is an excellent form of art. New cherry frame.
