Beautiful, great craftsmanship. Must take a lot of time and patience to do this.

I might have considered putting one of your other works on a to-do list, but cutting that many duplicate glass shapes with curves is not in this universe for me. And then the wood support would be nerve racking. You have combined art and craftsmanship.

Amazing work ! Well done.. I have just looked at your website and translated it with google to try understand how you make these windows. Hope you can share your skills with us . Here in England we see a lot of stained glass windows using LEAD Pb. So not sure how your Chinese knot method works with out Glue ? Plus where do you get the Glass and how do you cut it to shape ?
We would Love to see more wood work from you and others in IRAN. Very interesting.

thank you very much
dear “bazz135uk”
the knot or gereh is not Chinese. i’m not sure about the origin but it has been developed in islamic world and middle east. I know it is currently work in Iran, especially two ancient cities Yazd and Isfahan. and according to islamic-arts’ article also in Azerbaijan
gerehchini is combination of two words :
1.gereh or girih in persian گره that means geometric pattern. in direct translation into English it means knot.
2.chini that means put things in their place properly

i agree with you bazz135uk, getting glass is not convenient and it’s expensive.
for cutting glass there are some methods:
1.putting a suitable sheet of glass on the surface you want to fill then with using a glass cutter you follow the borderline
2.making a profile and jig for cutting polygons
3.using water jet for cutting glass exactly, but it’s expensive in Iran and i’m not expert on that

GHASEM – Sorry for Chinese quote :: When I looked at your website GOOGLE give me the option to Translate in to English and the translation is very poor and shows “Tags or Metatags ” quote Chinese knot.
I now understand how you make the windows. I also found the web link above very interesting and think your work is wonderful. Thank you for sharing your work its a great addition to Lumberjocks.
