So you’re thinking about adding some stained glass to your property? That’s excellent! Stained glass isn’t just beautiful to look at; it’s also a useful and functional feature. Stained glass controls how much light is let into a room, filtering and softening it as it pours inward. And the textures can provide privacy for occupants.

Stained glass has been around for quite some time, hundreds of years in fact. Which is great because there are a number of different styles you can choose from nowadays. One of our favorite is Dalle Stained Glass. Fort Collins properties can use Dalle de Verre to add color to bland or white walls, and create an interesting-looking focal piece.

In this post, we’ll discuss how Dalle de Verre is made, and what some of our favorite types are.

what is dalle stained glass

You’ve heard of Mackintosh, prairie style, art deco, and many other types of stained glass. But have you ever heard of Dalle Stained Glass? As a Denver resident, you’re no stranger to the beauty of stained glass windows. They’re part of so many of our historic churches and homes, especially in the Capitol Hill, Wash Park, and Congress Park neighborhoods.

But even in Denver, where stained glass can be found in abundance, “Dalle Stained Glass” is still an unfamiliar term to many. While it may be one of the lesser-known types of stained glass, it’s nonetheless one of the most beautiful. Here are a few of the distinct features that make this stained glass style unique.

Dalle Stained Glass – How It’s Made

Dalle Stained Glass windows are made in a similar manner to other types of stained glass. They employ the use of colorful glass and a frame or binding mechanism. Just like many other types, Dalle Stained Glass windows often contain images of landscapes, people, or religious symbols. However, what’s unique about Dalle de Verre is that the glass pieces are much thicker in size.

Traditional stained glass windows are made of glass fragments that are about the same width as an ordinary window pane. Dalle de Verre, on the other hand, is made from thick chunks of glass. This makes the colors more intense when the light shines through them.

Common Uses for Dalle de Verre

Dalle de Verre is used for many different types of buildings, including churches, homes, museums, hotels, libraries, and more. But perhaps some of the most common applications for Dalle Stained Glass in Denver include:

  • Bathroom windows and cabinets
  • Shower doors
  • Church sanctuaries
  • Hanging glass art panels
  • Kitchen and dining areas
  • Add Dalle Stained Glass to your Denver Home or Building

    What Makes Dalle Stained Glass Unique?

    Posted November 22nd, 2019 by ssgadmin

    If you have Dalle stained glass on or in your Fort Collins home or business, you likely know it is different from other types of stained glass but perhaps not why. As it turns out, Dalle stained glass is a very unique expression of the traditional stained glass art form with some pretty significant differences. Below we compare traditional stained glass to Dalle stained glass so you can get an idea about what sets the two apart.

    The Age of the Stained Glass Craft

    Dalle Stained Glass: was invented in the early part of the 20th century–making it about 100 years old. Furthermore, we have a pretty good understanding of who invented and pioneered this stained glass method.

    Traditional Stained Glass: this stained glass artform is old, if not ancient. Some traditional stained glass was even made over 100 years ago and we have no real idea who first made it or where.

    The Thickness of the Stained Glass

    Dalle Stained Glass: is very thick– sometimes well over 1” thick. It is made in big blocks and then sawed or hammered into size.

    Traditional Stained Glass: is much thinner–today’s production glass is about 1/8″ thick. It is usually made the same size as the panel that will hold it and is thin enough to sand and cut with a glass cutter.

    Type of Stained Glass Support Structure

    Dalle Stained Glass: is held in place by a thick concrete and epoxy frame that is poured onto the glass as it sits in a sand box. This makes it incredibly sturdy.

    Traditional Stained Glass:  Is usually made in wood frames with metal supports and the glass panels are separated by lead caming that is soldered in. While not fragile–it is not nearly as sturdy as Dalle stained glass.

    The Restoration Process for the Stained Glass

    Dalle Stained Glass: Since the concrete and epoxy framing is so durable, this type of glass is very hard to repair and restore. The entire stone like frame needs to be chipped off and then re-poured–very time consuming and expensive.

    Traditional Stained Glass: Is much easier to remove and restore since lead caming is soft and can be peeled off. However, re-leading a traditional stained glass frame requires more artistry and care but requires less cleaning afterward.
