Imagine Vincent Van Gogh, Claude Monet, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Rembrandt or any of the worlds artists and their works having black bars running horizontally and vertically through their paintings and figurines. That was the state-of-the-art for stained glass windows: 1870-1920’s, Louis Comfort Tiffany’s time.
Steel reinforcing bars (round and flat steal braces), are required in larger stained glass windows, otherwise the leaded window would sag, bow or bulge over time due to its weight and gravity. And Tiffany Windows gain even greater weight by virtue of multiple layers of glass, sometimes 7 layers thick! Still, what beauty and wondrous opalescent pastel colors that change with the passing of light and time of day.
But what if one could enjoy the beauty of stained glass art without bars? These same bars that create a barrier: like looking into a jail cell at figurines and landscapes, preventing the viewer from fully participating in the artists vision.
Introducing for your viewing pleasure, Tiffany Bar-None™. The opalescence beauty of Tiffany favrile glass now available to be viewed without the interference of vertical and horizontal bars.
