Glass on Glass 10 Pane

A 10-panel vintage window from Orange, California that survived the trip back to the Midwest. Pretty big window measuring 5′ feet x 2′ feet … which meant taking a bite out of my vintage glass collection.

The vintage windows desired for this art form should be sturdy with a thicker glass that doesn’t wiggle or show separation (rotting)  from the frame … not even a little bit.

I use E6000 Clear Adhesive to glue the glass to the glass, in a well ventilated room, with a wheeled tile cutter, a small hammer – on a sturdy surface – wearing safety glasses with a first aid kit near by … but not children or pets.  Safety First – Always wear safety glasses when breaking or cutting random glass dishes, cups and/or glass objects. Depending on the type of glass they can and some will shatter in a bazillion pieces … maybe more. Be careful.

This window was probably hung the wide way over an old store front somewhere.

Clean the window with a vinegar & water mixture – a couple of times – and let it dry.  Glue glass pieces into place filling in with cut glass pieces, clear glass gems, marbles and the like …

You don't find inspiration. It finds you.

Work in a well ventilated area.

Perfect first pass and not a single piece glued.

THROW BACK THURSDAY another blast from the past … 

The antique cupboard was loaded to the brim with vintage glass objects waiting and wanting.

My goal was three glass on glass windows by month’s end.
