Beveled glass has a distinctive look which makes any mirror, doorway or transom stand out. Glaziers take a sheet of thick glass and make an angled cut along the periphery of the plate or segment. This is done using sharpening stones spun at high velocity. It also takes a very steady hand and a sharp eye while making the bevel, whether traditional hand-made or machine methods are used. Afterward, a polishing wheel is employed to smooth out the cut so that light can pass through unimpeded by any remaining defects in the glass surface.
The end result creates a spectacular visual effect. The off-angle bevel acts as a prism, through which the color spectrum of the light passing through it is seen along the edges. Beveled glass is used in a wide variety of decorative applications, from a simple edging on a mirror to the cutting of glass panels and segments for very complex designs in entry doorways and transoms. Many art deco and art nouveau patterns use beveled glass segments, and the finished piece becomes one of the most attractive features of any home.
