New Way of Making Stained Glass

Articles in the Catholic Weeklies introduce us to Fr. Cho Kwang-ho, a professor in the Incheon Catholic University of Art and Design. His new art-stained, glass negative layer method of making stained glass will change, it has been said, the way we look at stained glass making. He has received a patent on the invention.
 
Stained glass, as we know, has been used in churches for hundreds of years, but is not limited to churches; it is seen in many commercial buildings and even in subways. Fr. Cho is a representative of the Korean Research Institute of Art and Design, and has worked with stained glass for many years. His method is cheaper, takes less time and, since lead will not be used, is environmentally friendly.
 
The technique, as in printing, uses a dye that is spread uniformly on the surface of the glass pane that has the desired design. The glass pane is then heated over  700 degrees Celsius. With the old methods, one is limited in many ways; with this method you can determine easily the colors, the brightness, saturation, and gradation of colors. And, in addition, it can capture what is lost with the old methods: the fine details such as hairs of the head and the texture of clothing.
 
In the years of working in art, he has felt many limitations in what he could do.  Fr. Cho studied art in Germany;  with his studies in stained glass, etching, and icons and the  experience in Korea came up with this new way of making stained glass.
 
Fr. Cho has shown the practicality of this way of working with stained glass in his many creations that now are located throughout Korea. They have stood up well with the passage of time. He eagerly looks forward to making the method better known at the Construction Material Exhibition in April this year.

  2. Here you can have tremendous savings, as you can learn the
    whole process without smashing up an airplane. It is also a good practice to make sure that none of the climbers are more tired than
    the other. However, such training programs are tough to wave through since it require tons of learning patience and willingness to proven one’s innate
    skills. Hardness is less then quartz, or ca 6 on Mohs scale.
    In general, it is something manufactured, to pretend to be (or simulate), something else more valuable.

  4. And while investigators say the murder victim is linked to a "feud," they are not sharing the
    details about that part of the investigation.

    concrete finishing is very much like smoothing out frosting on a birthday cake.

    It is advantageous for the customer to compare the prices for an
    additional dumpster rental from the normal waste removal company
    against an offer made by a collector that will place a dumpster for a one-time pickup.
