We had a chance to visit the house one year later after we installed large leaded glass domed skylight. It looks fantastic and impressive. The client has a large comfortable sofa just under the glass ceiling. You can literelaly spend the day stairing at glass.

The images of New Heaven leaded glass domed skylight project will be added to my artist's folder in the Corning Museum of Glass' public archives at the Rakow Library - the largest single collection of images of contemporary glass. Sweet! Little thing but very pleasant Leaded glass dome skylight

We are very happy to own and operate a CNC cutting machine from Flow Water jet. This is one of the most versatile tools available today. The machine can cut through any type of the material with incredible precision and speed. There are so many types of glass that is not possible or very difficult to cut by hand. The machine opens up for us a lot of technical possibilities that are not achievable while cutting glass by handglass water jet cutting glass water jet cutting

All glass professionals know that to cut glass this rough is not an easy task. Not for our water jet machine. It cuts through 4 layers of glass as a knife through butterglass water jet cutting

Bright and shiny ... colored beveled glass acanthus border and crystal pale jewels are great accent highlights for a large domed skylight.  One of the most amazing elements used in this leaded glass skylight is  custom made hand beveled colored glass. Each piece of beveled glass has a color stretching of delicate elusive colors of neon (lilac), pink, straw and pale blue to expose a sole of glass: transparency, brightness, color, texture.

The team behind  worked really hard. First, glass was formed in our large computer controlled kiln in a few stages, all elements were programmed for CNC machine and water jet cut in our studio in Mississauga.

After cutting, it was sent to Europe, detained by Ukrainian customs due to uncertain artistic value of content. That caused a few months delay in our production schedule. After explaining customs officers about glass beveling process it was released reaching the beveling studio in Ukraine. Absolutely stunning, fantastic, complex, technically difficult and crazy beveling work done by talented Yuriy Sergeev
