Window panes show their strong character with this patterned glass
Leaded glass refers to the many pieces of clear, stained, beveled or otherwise decorative panes of glass soldered traditionally with lead to create a window. Leaded glass is not to be confused with lead glass, which is simply a type of glass mixed with lead to produce exceptionally clear and brilliant refraction.
The multiple panes of leaded glass in the metal framework allow for this window to curve.
Even the transom windows of this window wall have panes of leaded glass.
These large leaded glass windows open from the center and swing out, an example of a casement window because they swing on a hinge.
Here is an example of leaded glass with a geometric pattern.
The white wood trim pieces between these panes of leaded glass are called mullions.
