Dichroic (Die-crow-ik) glass is glass that has a very fine layer (about 3 microns) of metal fused to its surface. Different metals in different combinations create the beautiful colours that you see. I also use glass stringers (‘vermicelli' shaped/sized glass), glass powders, metal foils and surface manipulation of the dichro etc to augment my designs.
