Fracture and Streamer Sheet Glass: Fracture glass, or 'Confetti' is made from eggshell-thin blown shards or flakes of intensely colored glass fused to the bottom of sheets during the rolling process. Use them in backgrounds to imply small scale repetitions of foreground features such as leaves or flowers. Fracture-Streamer glass is fracture glass combined with hand-stretched streamers or strings of glass. The irregular shaped streamers typically suggest twigs or branches in the background.
Tiffany and his glass artisans utilized fracture glass repeatedly for leafy or flowery background areas where the brightly colored fractures signified myriad leaves or flowers in the distance. Dark streamers typically denote twigs or branches amongst the leaves, while clear streamers can be used for effective cobwebs.
The unparalleled look of Uroboros' streamers is absolutely authentic to the Tiffany original and to nature - with hand-stretched, crooked, lumpy and delightfully quirky shapes allowing artists to mimic Mother Nature in their work.
Fracture and Fracture-Streamer glass, because of its endlessly varying play of shape and color, is also successfully used in large pieces for divider panels, panel lamps, and many other non-representational uses.
