Description: This is a true demonstration of the art of Glass Beveling in Chicago. Each individual beveled piece is well-polished and crisp, as it should be. Two special techniques were employed to bring this window to its elevated level. The first of these techniques is that of surface “honey-combing,” where the surface of specific pieces are pain-stakingly wheel-ground, then hand-polished in a honey-comb pattern. Six significant pieces of glass are done using this technique.

Additionally, the secondary border pieces are each completely zipper-cut to further enhance this eye-catching piece. This is a dynamite window.
