Flashed glass

Flashed glass,[1] or flash glass, is a type of glass[2] created by coating a colorless gather of glass with one[1][3][4] or more thin layers of colored glass.[5] This is done by placing a piece of melted glass of one color into another piece of melted glass of a different color and then blowing the glass.[1][6]

The colored glass can be partly or completely etched away (through exposure to acid or via sandblasting),[7] resulting in colorless spots where the colored glass has been removed.[4]

Flashed glass can be made from various colors of glass.[8] A finished piece of flashed glass appears translucent.[6]
