Though commonly called stained glass, these leaded glass drawings are more like traditional drawings than stained glass windows. They are compositions on and with glass. Bubbles, irregularities, surface textures, transparency, and the color gradations of the glass are graphic elements.
While most of the hand blown and machined glass was made in contemporary Germany some of it was manufactured there in 1920s and 30s when members of the Bauhaus were collaborating with industry. This earlier glass is intensely colored, opaque “sign” glass that is sometimes used for highlights or fields of color in the panels. In it you may recognize colors used by Kandinsky and Albers, artists whose aesthetics influenced the panels and many later works on this website.
