The main characteristic of dichroic glass is that it has a particular transmitted color and a completely different reflected color, as certain wavelengths of light either pass through or are reflected. This causes an array of color to be displayed. The colors shift depending on the angle of view. Dichroic glass is an example of thin-film optics.

Fused Glass Geisha

Are these not so cute! I miss playing in the barn with my glass but seems I can not do it all 😦

Looking At Glass

Today I am looking at Fused Glass Geisha Diffuser/Bud Vases.

I am at High Point Fall Market and as with previous trips, I am in heaven.  Yesterday, I spotted these adorable Fused Glass Geisha Diffuser/Bud Vases at Global Views.  Actually, I forgot that I was in a showroom when I saw them and I may have squealed slightly a little bit loudly when I saw them.  Once again, proving my ability to act like a complete professional in public places.

There are 4 different Fused Glass Geishas.  Each one represents a different season; Summer, Spring, Winter, and Autumn.

dimensions: 4.5″L x 2.75″W x 9.5″H

I’ll share more High Point Market finds with you soon!
