RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
I want to create a 3D light object by using glass mosaics. I want to use a optical properties of leaden, non-leaden and uranium glass stick. I glued hand cut glass mosaics particle to a glass plate. To create part what will show mosaics design I partly cower mosaics surface by pointing. Them I instal a glass stick - rays of star to bring light to the third dimension. Mosaics and a LED panel is fixed to iron frame by screw. By using uranium glass, object is also sensitive to UV light / black light.

CHALLENGE:
Combine materials to create a visually interesting light object that have esthetic and useful utilization. The idea was to move towards customize design to customer - public or private, where each piece is original. Frame and LED light is industrially made and there is a original part of design that is custom-made. Find the glue with specific properties as transparency, durability, adhesive property and UV immunity to be us for creating transparent mosaic surface, to build up 3D structure.
