Using Decorative Glass In Your Home

Have you really considered the language used for art glass? Most find these terms both numerous and perplexing, so much so that I threw a ringer right in the title. For starters, as most of us learned in elementary science class, mica isn’t glass at all. Rather it’s a mineral that flakes nicely into translucent sheets. Thus it is an ideal material for lamp shades, as demonstrated in the famous “coolie” shades made by Dirk van Erp.

“Art glass” is certainly a catch-all term that can be used to refer to most kinds of decorative glass in period lighting, windows, doors or hand-blown vases, but terms do exist that are more accurate and specific. First let’s start with a tough one: the difference between stained and leaded glass. In historical European cathedral windows and the like, this stained glass is colored glass that’s been painted with vitreous oxides and fired with or without silver nitrate. This stain glass is considered to be leaded. Individual pieces of the composition or mosaic were held in place with lead cames, which you can recognize as the dark matter holding together the bits of light-filled glass.

Luckily, things are much simpler these days. Those who use the term “stained glass” today are simply referring to any window with colored glass. If a clear glass window is leaded, it’s just simply call “leaded.”

Artisans use minerals to give colored glass its tint. But not all stained glass is transparent. The term “opalescent” is used for translucent stained glasses. But be careful. Opalescent glass is not transparent but rather milky. This type of glass often has more than one color in a sheet. Tiffany windows are a noteworthy example of opalescent glass.

{Another notable example of this is the windows by Greene & Greene, who layered their glass the same way as Tiffany, but they used copper foil and lead overlay to enhance the dimensional quality of their compositions.} Greene & Greene’s glass is actually very common. Since it’s iridized on one surface, it has the appearance of a rainbow. Frank Lloyd Wright and Tiffany have both used this same glass.

Favrile became the brand-name of Tiffany’s version of this shimmering opalescent glass, a term that was trademarked in 1894. What makes this iridescent glass so special is that it appears to change colors when it’s seen from different angles. Other companies also made iridized glass, but none used the term Favrile.

We’ve clarified what mica, stained glass, leaded glass, opalescent, iridescent, and Favrile all are. What exactly are slag and slumped? Well, slag glass is the term used for the sheets of opalescent glass slipped into Arts and Crafts light fixtures. (The term “slag” refers to the undocumented belief that slag from iron smelting works was added to the glass for color.) On the other hand, slumped glass refers to glass that’s been worked when still hot in the kiln. Glass shades are first “slumped” over a bowl, and then sometimes the glass artists will actually climb into the kiln while the glass is still hot to manipulate the shape of the shade. Artists can even create more complicated shapes, ranging from delicately folded glass in a tulip-like shade to futuristic shapes that resemble a translucent article marshmallow after a swipe through the campfire.
