Add brilliance and shine this holiday with this stunning dichroic fused glass tree. This tree is made from 100% clear dichroic glass.
The main characteristic of dichroic glass is that it has a transmitted color and a completely different reflective color. These two colors shift depending on the angle of view. Many different multicolored stripes are layered for a dramatic effect. This product is difficult to capture in a photo. The glass is, in fact, clear but the colors take on varying levels of intensity depending on how you are viewing them. I tried to take a picture with both white and dark gray backgrounds so you can see how it affects the colors of the trees.

6 years ago I fell in love with a fused glass sculpture that was on display. I loved the color and the smoothness of the glass and I could not stop thinking about it. With the encouragement of my husband I decided to learn how to create fused glass art. After years of learning through classes and trial and error I started a business that I now operate 24 x 7.
As I was assembling my business I came up with the name 1550art because I was creating fused glass and working with temperatures that varied from 1,400 to 1,600 degrees so I wanted a name that reflected what I was doing. I now create works of art that are hand cut, cold worked, colorful, and kiln fired with multiple firings to create art with depth of color and vibrancy.
I like to focus on creating functional art that takes advantage of the best properties of glass: color, glossiness and smoothness. My main focus is called a Java Stir. They are fused glass drink stirrers. They are sleek, bright, cheerful, functional, unique and affordably priced. They are also environmentally friendly as you may be aware of the desire to eliminate plastic straws and plastic and single use wooden stirrers. Perfect for buying them as gifts.
