The glass

The glass is, which from ancient times, made from natural materials which mainly consists of quartzsand, (Silicon oxide), lime and sodium oxide. It is melted with oxygen and gas, leaving no environmentally damaging substances and as such is a sustainable material.

Glass painting

All paintings are painted on the back of the float glass. The painting will be fired at 580 °C. The image will be painted in many layers, and after each paint burned it. A painting is therefore often burned 6-7 times. All glass paintings are put on the frame with a special bracket in such a way that the penetrating light gives a shadow effect on the rear plate. This shadow effect that also draws the color with it, is the part of the image’s composition, and it also makes the picture changes depending on the angle, the light is coming from.
