Medieval stained glass windows in a modern interior
The modern process of making stained glass windows in historical style
Profile
It is made to the desired size. As a rule, it is made of metal - given the considerable weight of the structure.
Sketch
In recent decades, it is drawn on a computer in specialized graphic editors. The software allows you to predict in advance what the reflection of light will be depending on the characteristics and placement of each element.
Bevels
So called individual elements, each of which is cut on the machine with a laser. Thus, the ancient procedure of processing individual glasses became not only more accurate and perfect, but also thousands of times faster, which allowed to drastically reduce the total cost of finished products.
Soldering
At the final stage, with the use of the most advanced technology today - "Tiffany" - the metal foil is soldered between the elements, the surplus is carefully removed, and the seam is cleaned. As a result, the Bevels form a single pattern with completely inconspicuous joints, and the stained glass window takes its final look.
The painting
The exceptions are cases in which the pattern for a classic stained glass becomes overly complex, since it requires the introduction of very small elements into the product. In order not to violate the classical technology, instead of inserts, larger Bevels are painted with special paints, after which this or that fragment seems to be a collection of several small ones.
Sections
If the stained glass windows in the historical style envisaged by the project reach sizes of more than 1-2 m 2 , ensuring their reliability is achieved by dividing into sections, for each of which a separate profile is prepared.
Areas of use
  • windows - hide dull landscapes outside and paint with amazing light of the room inside;
  • ceilings - suspended medieval stained glass window visually expands the room and makes it much more festive;
  • Entrance groups - an incredibly fresh and bright accent is added to any interior composition;
  • partitions - not only successfully divide the room into separate zones, but also create the effect of additional space (especially if the stained glass windows are something like a bright picture);
  • furniture facades are much more expressive elements of facades than ordinary glass with colored patterns);
  • the panels look the most impressive in dark and gloomy rooms, illuminating them with soft diffused light;
  • lamps - ideal ceiling and night lamps for bedrooms.
The main advantages of medieval stained glass windows
Like all other works of art of this kind, the historical options are different:
  • almost infinite service life without deterioration of physical and technical characteristics and loss of performance;
  • the uniqueness of the pattern - since the products are single-piece, and in the Tiffany technique they are assembled almost entirely by hand;
  • the uniqueness of the method of dispersion of light.
