Opalescent glass is a mixed glass in which one piece may have from two to five color combinations and contain a white opaqueness that does not let you readily see through it. These windows may also contain hand- stained pictorial scenes. Like cathedral glass the glass is held together with lead cames (narrow strips of H-shaped lead). This glass, as well as cathedral glass, works well in a light box, which Laws also supplies for your church or sanctuary remodeling projects.
Transparent glass that usually contains only one color is considered cathedral (double roll) glass. Within cathedral windows, hand-stained pictorial scenes, symbols, and memorial plates may be incorporated.
Hand Stained Pictorial
This leaded glass is used to produce beautiful pictorial work. While providing a wide variety of designs depicting the life of Christ, Laws can create any type of window to suit your church or sanctuary renovation needs.
Distinct from the leaded glass, faceted glass has its own unique appeal. It is an inch thick and its surface is faceted or chipped. While the other types of glass are bound together with strips of H-shaped cast lead (called cames), faceted glass is held together with an epoxy (a cement-like substance) which allows the spaces between the glass to vary if desired.
