The types of glass available for your handmade sculpture or pendant light


There are a number of different types of glass that resident artist, Asaf Zakay, uses in his hand-crafted pendant lights and sculptures.  A piece can be solely the one type of glass or a mix.  Contact us to discuss your special piece.

More information on each of the types of glass we use is as below.

Dichroic Glass

Dichroic glass is glass containing multiple micro-layers of metals or oxides which gives the glass dichroic optical properties. This causes an array of colour to be displayed and the colours shift depending on the angle of the view.

Dichroic Clear Glass

Dichroic clear glass provides predominately pinks, oranges, yellows and blues.
