Description of Beveled glass
Beveled glass is usually made by taking 1.4-inch-thick (6.4 mm) clear glass and creating a one-inch bevel on one side around the entire periphery. These bevels act as prisms in the sunlight, creating an interesting color diffraction which both highlights the glasswork and provides a spectrum of colors which would ordinarily be absent in clear float glass.
"Beveled glass" can be obtained as clusters which are arranged to create a specific design. These can vary from simple three or four piece designs, often used in top lights (commonly known as transoms) of windows and conservatories, to more complex combinations of many pieces, suitable for larger panels such as doors and side screens (known in the door industry as sidelites).
Beveled glass has also been used with clear and colored textured glass to create decorative glass designs. Textured glass is typically 1/8" thick and has a distinct visible texture. The combination of beveled glass is juxtaposed to the textured glass, creating dramatic visual effects.
