Rault Freres, Rennes, France
Three entirely distinct forms of glass are in play here.
The Rault windows, uniquely among glass artists, use two forms of stained glass: painted vitreous enamel for the figure, as in medieval times; dalle de verre (aka slab or faceted glass, developed early in the 20th century; and standard industrial clear glass.
The richly coloured panel hovers as if free of gravity, in front of the original and fortuitous corner glazing.
