A recent addition to our showroom is this Plum Blossom window. The window pictures a flowering branch from a plum tree in a vase. Three layers of plated glass were used to create the vase, and additional plating was done on the table cloth.
The design on the vase was achieved by hand cutting a stencil on a piece of two layer flash glass, and then sand blasting the thinner layer of color to leave the design onto the surface of the glass. Bill is seen laying out the floral portions of this piece in the photo to the left.
The blue border consists of very three dimensional “iceberg” jewels. As you can see in the photo to the right, the jewels give a textural look to the window. This window is currently available in our showroom.
