Dichroic glass was developed by the space industry for window filters on space craft. It is made by depositing several very thin layers of rare metal oxides on the surface of a piece of glass, then bombarding the particles with an intense electron beam in a high temperature vacuum chamber. The term ‘Dichroic‘ is defined as the property of exhibiting more than one colour when viewed from different angles. Virginia fires her glass in a kiln at high temperatures a number of times to achieve the finished result. The colour of each piece can be quite unpredictable. Dichroic glass possesses a similar effect that is witnessed in nature on insect wings, peacock and hummingbird feathers. When the dichroic glass is fired in the kiln, its reflective qualities are enhanced to make it sparkle and shine an increased amount.
