There is light at the end of the tunnel ......
We have been recently commissioned on a small project to provide coloured light at the end of four small "tunnels". These are tubes set into a former outhouse wall. The building is being upgraded to form a holiday let cottage and the pipes are being retained to bring a little bit of coloured light and interest to the interior. We have worked with our clients to choose the glasses. To help visualise the outcome and choose the glasses, a special jig was built to model the "tunnels".
Each tunnel (approx. 11 cms in diameter) has a piece of transparent, Artique, textured glass on one end (four different colours) while on the other end there is a wispy transparent glass, again four different ones. The colours have been chosen to provide a transition going up the way from the lightest combination at the bottom, to the darkest at the top. A jig was built to simulate the tunnels to help choose the combinations. The pictures below show how it is supposed to work, using the jig. Left to Right: one clear textured glass at the rear, streaky glass added to the front slot, shot of one of the chosen glasses, Spectrum SP339-1S. Watch this space for photos of the outcome!
The glass has now been cut to size and installed. First pictures, courtesy of the clients, below.
