Dichroic Glass Australia

I work with glass artists in South East Queensland, who are producing exciting new works of art, some of which are wearable! The main artist is Australian, 3rd Generation Glass Artist, Karen Roussos. We are focussed on Dichroic Glass, as it has amazing colour changing properties. Dichroic Glass was developed dby NASA space program as a component for their satellite mirrors. Dichroic Glass refers to glass containing multiple layers of metal oxides incus NO tow pieses luding gold, silver, titanium and quartz crystals which give the Dichroic Glass optical properties. The main characteristic of this glass is that it has a particular TRANSMITTED colour and a COMP:ETEPT different REFLECTED colour as certain wavelengths of light either pass through or are reflected. The properties of the glass allow for extremely high temperatures whilst in the kiln. It is ONLY when the Dichroic Glass is fired in a kiln that the true colour is revealed - thus, NO two pieces can ever be made the same.
