Revamped patterned window glass keeps alive the finesse of yesteryear

文字-A A +A

In the early 1950s and 60s, elegant patterned glass was common in Taiwan. However, changes in house construction methods led to a decrease in the demand for patterned glass, and it has gradually all but disappeared from our lives. Zhong Xin-ying, who has a passion for collecting old objects, uses old patterned glass in the inlay process to give a new look and style to discarded glass.

Glass inlay is very time-consuming work. One must go through a long process of cutting, grinding, wrapping with copper foil, soldering, dyeing, polishing, etc. Before soldering, a thin layer of copper tape is affixed to the edge of the glass and then soldered. The purpose is to connect all the surfaces with the solder and form the glass into a three-dimensional object.

傳統窗花玻璃再雕塑 延續舊時風采

復古典雅的窗花玻璃是台灣早期五六○年代常見的玻璃樣式,隨著房屋結構的改變,需求量的減少,窗邊上的壓花玻璃也逐漸消失在我們的生活中。樂於蒐集老物件的鍾欣穎,將自身蒐集來的窗花玻璃結合鑲嵌工藝,讓原本廢棄無用的窗花玻璃,有了新的風貌。

 

鑲嵌玻璃是一個很耗時的工作,會經過切割、研磨、包銅箔、焊接、染色、拋光等繁瑣的過程,其中,在焊接的工作裡,會先在玻璃上包上一層薄薄的銅箔作為媒介,接著以金屬的錫做焊接動作,目的是讓錫跟錫之間可以產生連接,將玻璃製作成立體的樣貌。
