Episcopal Church Beveled Glass Window ©Cain Art Glass 2016, All Rights ReservedThis window was created using our 1915 Henry Lang machinerey. We glue chipped 1/4″ glass for the background first, always making at least three times as much as we need so we could select for the effect we wanted. Here we were searching for a natural frost look to contrast the border. By hand beveling various thincknesses of glass over rotating iron, stone, cork, and felt we were able to bring the beveled edges to life with many small facets. The opening for this window was an interior wall, so to bring our art piece to life we hung a chandelier behind it. The light from the many small bulbs reflecting off the bevels is stunning as one moves around the sanctuary. As one member called it, “Our Spiritual Window”.
