That's cool! Is it painted?  I'm not getting a clear idea of how you do that with glass and have it hold up over time.  Painted and sandwiched between two layers of glass?

It is painted. To insure durability the work is usually fired in a kiln or oven of some sort.

there's a Chihuly at the Casino about 2O miles from here, I almost had the hubby stop to photograph it the other day, it's all white, and beautiful! I also need to go a few blocks away to photograph the fairly newly installed worlds largest LED chandelier [steel and stained glass by Meyda Tiffany, which is local also] at the Stanley Theater, I just need to remember to bring my camera when I leave the house!

Architecture being art too, here's one of my local favorite uses of glass, the Utica library is over a hundred years old, and has glass floors!



books, through the floor-


from the bottom-




couple details of the rest of the building-





the hubby jokingly said "glass floors were all the rage in the age of the skirt" which made me wonder, the glass around the edges and in less walked on parts is definitely much clearer than the scuffed hundred year old walked-on parts, did they just politely not look up ?!

Wonderful pictures, and I think your hubby is correct. Although that is probably why the glass has the water effect, instead of being just plain patternless.

All these glass work is looking very beautiful and having a lot of creativity as, there are many things that can be made by the use of glass not just paintings and different artistic patterns but, some crockery stuffs also.

Thanks
