|I made a window a few years back with everything in it - base of a wine glass, slices of agate, cast lumps of glass, artificial sapphire, slumped marbles, mirror... I also used some dichroic which changes colour depending on where you stand in the church and also, when it's dark outside and lights are on inside, glitters gold. I fired the dichroic to toughen the coating (genuine dichroic glass is hideously expensive - the coated is bad enough). I think mixing materials works better in a modern design - traditional stained glass I don't think does. Different glasses affect the light in different ways, which is why it's difficult to come up with a sucesful window, I think.
