The combination of faceted and foiled stained glass enables the creation of panels with a complexity and vibrancy unobtainable with either media alone. Foiled glass allows for intricately shaped and nuanced panels using sheets of glass, often quite beautiful in their own right, while the addition of faceted glass adds brilliance, color and depth. Since I have not been able to find any similar work, I developed this site to display what I have been able to achieve and share what I have learned. I just was informed (12/15/2013 ) about the work performed by the Rault Studios who used faceted glass in many major leaded stained glass works since the 1950’s described in an article by Patrick Burns. This was called to my attention by Don Burt of the American Glass Guild and Barbara Krueger of H-Net.
