Most of this type of work we use adhesive lead over the edge of the design to imitate traditional lead work. Because the colours are printed on one side of the glass, it makes these fired enamel pieces ideal for double glazed units.

Stained glass or enamelled glass, is glass that has colour applied to the surface. The enamels are made from different types of metal, ground glass and flux which are mixed together to form the enamel. The different types of metal gives the glass it’s colour.
When the enamel is applied to the glass it is then fired in a kiln between 560-620c. At this temperature the glass at melting point and the enamel fires into its surface becoming stained glass.
