Ge Beverage Refrigerator Glass Door - Stained glass is probably one of the very most amazing kinds of glass available, and is most known for the presence in wonderful medieval church windows, depicting glorious pictures. Typically, stained glass can be used to depict some sort of notion or symbol or graphic, though now it is increasingly being used as an extra touch of beauty to houses and offices and simple ornamentation. The stained colours are much more subtle, and stained glass is even used for coffee tables and indoors.
Stained glass is created by adding metallic oxides to glass that is molten (created from melt silica with other products) and continually kept melted down inside a clay pot over a furnace. The kind and number of oxide added to determine blaze and the shade of colour; while cobalt makes gold and blue glass makes red glass, copper oxides result in green glass. The red colour is manufactured with less expensive substances these days and creates a more brilliant red.
While some stained glass doors are completely made from glass (and these are perfect for interior doors leading to offices, or doors leading into gardens), other stained glass doors are only partially made of glass.
Instead, the door is mostly wood, having an inset stained glass window that adds wonderfully to the look of the entranceway. But if you are trying to find such a stained glass door, I'd highly recommend having a somewhat elaborate wooden door either stained or painted a darker colour; carvings on the door would increase the appearance, and also a heavier wooden door would be best. This makes the glass area fit in aesthetically onto the heavy wooden door.
