However in traditional architecture , domes are always built by brick, today beauty of dome is depent on different materials which were used to build the dome ,for example ,glassy dome. This dome which certainly needs a metallic structure, is a beautiful integration of a transparent and smooth material named glass and a solid and rough metal. This contradiction makes it so beautiful.
Bent glassy dome
Fortunately, glassy deme is executed in Iran by cooperation among frame maker, caster and glass bending workers.
After building glassy dome, by respect to space, stained glass techniques can be done and decorated by that.
Step glassy dome
However it seems round and dome form, but in fact it comprised of flat and glassy items which makes a dome form by angels rotation. This can be tempered for safety. Decorated glasses can be used in this form which make it more beautiful.
Stained glass dome
Cut pieces in stained glass lead it to shine in natural light and a diamond light is d in and under the dome which has special beauty.
In Iran glassblowers however had enough s to make stained glass and tiffany glasses, since early years they haven’t made glassy domes. The first stained glass included 2 glassy domes with circle and oval sections and were built in one of residential projects in north of Tehran.
After these projects, handmade glassy domes were considered simple and our artists could build convex glassy structures in every size and dimension by tiffany art and stained glass techniques.
Because these glasses are so valuable, if glassy dome relates to outside space, some pieces of laminated or tempered bent glasses will cover their back so that after a outside strike , it will prevent danger.
Fused glassy dome
This note can be considered that for having a convex glass, it’s not necessary that it’s uted in outside space. We can energy in our life and enjoy of that by a small dome of decorated glasses.
