Howdy - New to the group. Been into stained glass for about 10 years. Mostly windows, some lampshades and candle holders, etc. Arts and crafts and prairie style mostly. Anyway - I was wondering if anyone knew how the commercial stained/leaded glass lampshade makers make their shades. I mean, it sure isn't came that they are using. It often looks as though they laid the glass out on a pattern with gaps between the pieces and then poured melted lead in the gaps. Does anyone know anything about this?
