Dalle de Verre

There's a glass technique out there that's like a blend of stained glass and mosaic. Dalle de verre. Very interesting. My friend Leigh Adams just got back from a glass adventure in Kenya at a glass paradise called Kitengela Glass Studios and she had many, many pictures of dalle de verre windows and furniture. I know I'm fascinated. It brought to Kitengela by Alfons Bippus from Germany. I hear there's dalle de verre in Los Angeles...I'm on a mission to find it.

Cement and glass are combined to create panels of picturesque glass that are transformed into windows, furniture and sculpture. Large and small scale. Leigh had dalle de verre in her house she stayed in at Kitengela everywhere she turned. I'll get pictures form her to share soon. In the meantime enjoy a few I've found on the internets...
