Stained Glass

Gallery Two

This Gallery shows a small selection of commissions in the technique of glass mosaic (ie, not painted) made by Rod from 1990 to the present.

Glass Mosaic is like any other mosaic (ceramic,etc) except that the fragments of prepared coloured glass are bonded onto clear float glass with water-clear adhesive, in this case with the latest 2-part silicon from Germany.

The opportunities for a greater variety of dynamic juxtapositions of colour are greater than with traditional leaded glass-painting, and the all-important element of the opaque grouting contributes the darkness that brings the colour alive.
