Winter Light

Days are finally lengthening. With the sun low on the horizon at this time of year, you may find it coming in your windows a little too intensely, particularly if you have south-facing windows.

If you're contemplating your light-control options, consider stained or fusion glass.  With the right choices you'll be able to diffuse the light without cutting off the world outside.

A glass window hanging, strategically placed, can reduce glare while still letting you see the scenery.
If privacy is also a criteria, we can selectively place the design so outsiders can't see what you are doing. Below is a sandblasted panel we used with conventional stained glass in a door.
Next is a window that combines stained and fusion glass techniques.  For more window designs go to www.turtlecreekart glass.ca.
