Glass Victorian Windows Galleries
The basic methods of making stained glass
for Victorian Windows was little different from that used
as far back as the twelfth century. Glass was made by
melting sand, potash and lime together in clay pots.
The glass was colored by the addition of metallic oxides
- copper for red, iron for green, cobalt for blue and
so on ,especially red glass, a favorite for Victorian Windows with the "red glow border",was often too dark
to transmit much light. To overcome this, 'flashed' glass
was made by dipping a lump of white glass on the blowpipe
into a pot of red glass and then blowing,
This provided sheets of glass with a thin surface layer
of color. Later, parts of this layer could be removed
by grinding with an abrasive wheel; this produced two
colors, red and white, on the same piece of glass.
