Dichroic Glass

2012

Location: La Touche restaurant, Building:One, Business School, Streatham Campus



Georgia Scott’s works are organically inspired, using materials such as woven metal meshes, glass, low energy fibre optics and LEDs combined to produce an atmospheric blend of ethereal silhouettes, subtle shapes and light. She has extended this fascination with light, shadow and transparency by working with kiln-formed glass.

Dichroic glass is glass containing multiple micro-layers of metals or oxides which give the glass dichroic optical properties. The main characteristic of dichroic glass is that it has a particular transmitted colour and a completely different reflected colour, as certain wavelengths of light either pass through or are reflected. This causes an array of colour to be displayed. The colours shift depending on the angle of view.
