Dichroic glass has metallic properties originally created by NASA for the space program. But in the glass studio the studio the artistic possibilities are unlimited. The uniqueness of dichroic glass is its ability to both reflect colours and to transmit them. Often when dichroic glass is in contact with light it will change colours... moving and shifting with light sources, from sunlight to candlelight.... Even the clothing you wear can change the colours of dichroic glass. The artist who makes these is exceptional in her attention to detail and colour. Super vibrant!
