Space Age Materials
MAKES FUSED FANTASIES UNIQUE
If you view our fused fantasies from different angles, you catch a spectacular
flash of colors. This is a special glass developed for NASA's scientific
optical instruments. Dichroic glass is used in the space telescope
and all kinds of scientific optical instruments. A sixteen inch square
of glass is placed into a vacuum chamber. Only a few companies produce
the glass, and each one has their own secret formulas.
Exotic materials like titanium, magnesium, silicon and other metallic
oxides and chemicals are vaporized in the chamber, putting 16 to 32 coatings
of variable thickness onto the glass in molecularly thin layers. These
coatings completely change the light passing and reflecting properties
of the glass.
Next, Carolique performs special processing
on the glass to transmute and change the glass and the coatings.
The coatings wrinkle up and change texture and color and become a fabulously
colored stone that will last forever. Each one is cut and layered up to
eight layers and formed into jewels you will be thrilled to wear.
Our years of experimentation produce colors, quality, and textures that
few glass artists can match.
Selected items are mounted in unique wire sculptures
with 14 carat gold and Sterling, and many are beaded with Czechoslovakian
glass beads or Austrian crystal beads. Carolique
produces original treasures that will be admired by your friends, and enjoyed
for a lifetime.
