We stock genuine hand made brilliant cuts in various colours and sizes

Traditional cut and polished corner stars are often found in Victorian 9 pane doors and sash windows and usually referred to as glory stars. These are made from flashed stained glass from St. Just (a two layer sheet) with one layer cut away in the star pattern to reveal clear underneath. These are then polished to give a crystal shine.


As this is hand made glass, exact colour may vary. When you order more than one of the same colour we will always try to match the colours in the set.


Brilliant Cut Glory Stars

Our alternative to glory stars. These are made from flashed stained glass (a two layer sheet) with one layer sandblasted away in the star pattern to reveal clear underneath, then silver stained and kiln fired.



A Brilliant Cut, is a 'V' groove, ground into the surface of the glass, and polished back to the same quality as the glass surface itself.

 

Brilliant cutting is a highly skilled and artistic process. It is an age-old technique that has been passed on through apprenticeship and is all done by hand, giving a superb finish.
