Beveled glass windows create a luxurious, elegant feel like no other. A brilliant, custom classic, beveled glass windows and glass inserts by Sans Soucie are available any shape or size in virtually any design. As with all Sans Soucie Art Glass, each piece is custom made to order to your specifications.
Bevels acts as prisms in the sunlight, creating an stunning color diffraction which both highlights the glass work and provides a spectrum of colors within the clear glass.
Beveled glass for windows and doors is created by taking glass that is typically 1/4″ thick, and creating an angled surface cut (bevel) around the entire permitter of each individual piece. Some beveled glass clusters and designs are machine cut, but since the majority of the pieces we create are custom designed, our pieces are typically made up of beveled pieces that have been custom hand-cut, and hand beveled, specific to each design and piece. The beveled clusters are then surrounded by various types of machine textured glass in the “field” (the area surrounding the bevel clusters that make up the rest of the panel), that’s normally 1/8″ or 3/16″ thick, depending on the glass. The most popular textures used in the field that you’ll see in many of our pieces is taffeta glass, delta and delta frost, seedy glass, and other “flemish” textures.
As with stained glass, each piece is set together in a framework of strips of lead that are joined and soldered together. The overall thickness of the art glass panel in the lead frame is 3/8″ thick. For exterior applications, the art glass panel is first meticulously cleaned to perfection by our glass artists, then sealed between two layers of 1/8″ tempered glass, creating what’s known as a “triple pane unit“, a minimum of 5/8” thick overall.
This type of art glass has the highest material cost and is the most labor intensive of all the glass types we create. Price will vary by the complexity of the design and the quantity of beveled pieces, with an average square foot price starting at $250. Glass ships worldwide, fully insured, and is custom packed in-house by our expert artist glaziers. Domestic transit times range between 2-4 days, international will average 5-8 business days.
First and foremost, you’ll get quality! Each piece is meticulously hand-crafted with attention to every detail in the design. For interior use, you’ll get a single pane of art glass, with a lead perimeter frame that will be approx. 3/8″ thick overall. For exterior, you’ll get a triple pane, insulated unit with the art glass panel sealed between two layers of 1/8″ clear tempered glass, with the overall thickness of the triple pane unit being 5/8″ thick minimum.
