Metallic finish glass for stained glass and mosaic projects
This unique glass has gorgeous colors, flecks, and patterns that will bring your next project to life. Wonderful for mosaics or adding a dramatic accent to your next stained glass panel, the colors and combinations are incredible. This glass is not transparent, but has a backing similar to mirror. Backing does not chip off when cutting or nipping. All Van Gogh glass is handmade, which means actual glass may vary slightly from photo. Sold in 12" x 12" pieces.
Technical Information: Van Gogh glass is for use in stained glass and mosaics. Glass is not for use in kilns or fusible because it is both painted and silvered.
Mosaic vase and vanity projects created by artist and Delphi guest instructor Tom Snyder. Mosaic rose table by artist Keturah Esch. Stained glass checker board created by artist Michael Johnson. From "40 Great Stained Glass Projects" book #6324.
Pros : great glass for mosaics, cuts like butter, can touch up back with a black paint pen if it gets scratched.
Cons : should be treated like mirror, but not a real problem. Should be ground using the fine grit. I use a piece of window screen on top of my grinder and grind it with the backing facing up
Other Thoughts : I'm a mosaic artist.I live in the town where van gogh glass is made. I use it quite often in my work; and to be a hand painted product it is very close from batch to batch sheet to sheet, I have used it for years, It's sole purpose is mosaics, but works for wall hangings and boxes, etc
Cons : I can't really recommend this glass to anyone. The color is in the foil laminated to clear glass. It has to be handled very gently. the foil is very easy to scrape off and has to be ground and cut with a saw with the glass down. I was very disappointed with the glass.

Since there were no colors in the town of Youghiogheny, where she lived, everyone was sad. One day while collecting drift wood on Kokomo beach, Uro found a piece of beach glass. The
How did you get started in glass? Glass is a fascinating medium. I was living as an ex-pat in Denmark in 2001 when I had the luck of finding a fusing glass course. I fell in love with the technique immediately. I pursued further classes and a masters since, trying to achieve more. I’m also a self learner, I love to study and work on my own. Since then I never stopped looking for ways to improve myself in this beautiful art. Why glass? The first time I went to Murano, Italy, back in 1986 I had the chance to visit glass studios and was astonished by the way the artists worked with the powders and heat. Due to its unique properties, glass continues to be an intriguing material that can reflect, transmit or absorb light. It creates a surprise element which brings eclectic interest to a space without becoming
