Exquisite Custom Guitar Art uniquely combines stained glass, mosaics and iconic musical imagery. The full scale (or larger) three dimensional Art Guitars are: (i) clad in stained glass; (ii) accessorized with pieces of mosaic tiles, metals and other creative materials; and (iii) secured through colorful grout. Guitars can be illuminated by using state-of-the-art back-lighting technology with timer cycle allowing constant or gradually phased in/out lighting. Logos or images can be placed in the circular middle, or pick guard areas using glass fusing techniques.
Construction techniques use plywood templates with thicknesses from 1" to 1 1/2" assuring sturdiness thus eliminating any possible effects from long-term warping.
This pictured "Purple Haze" Guitar (left) is the first of a new series of illuminated pieces where back lighting further enhances the beautiful coloration of stained glass. A programmable dimmer chip allows light to gradually intensify and then phase out to bring further intrigue and captivation to it's viewers.
Select stained glass can have "two lives". The coloration when illuminated can be significantly different than the unlit state, so the viewer sees the coloration gradually shift back and forth between it's "two lives". The light-box technology involves creating a cavity where intense, yet diffused light is mounted behind the stained glass. Low voltage-LED lighting is used and the chip has a clock feature adjusting to any amount of hours, and period each day.
