Handblown Glass
Lamberts handblown glass.
The purple glass, made by Lambert's Glashutte in Germany, is a triple-flashed (micro-layers of shaded colors blown onto the glass) gold pink.
Blowing a cylinder of Fremont antique glass.
Custom blown triple-flashed shades of pink and lavender, hand selected by Devereaux, as she interprets the watercolor design.
Flashed micro-layers of color are etched to shade like the original watercolor.
Handblown glass has a shimmering texture reminiscent of wind blowing over water, while handmade bevels are laminated to the etched flashed glass below.
Hand Crafted Bevels
Handcrafted bevels project prismatic shapes into the architectural space.
Polished bevels ready for assembly.
Once the bevels are cut, they are ground and polished by hand with seven different wheels.
Inspecting bevels for a smooth polished finish.
Bevels add depth to the finished windows, as well as splaying the prismatic light.
Laminated bevels add richness and mystery to the mouthblown shaded glass,
24kt Gold Luster
Painted and kiln-fired 24kt Gold luster reflects interior light at night, becoming a very different window at night than in the day.
Laser-etched 24kt Gold pattern detail
After the initial design is created in water color, we print full-scale computer  "cartoons" with which we make patterns and assemble the cut glass.
