Flashed glass also known as flash glass is a type of glass. It is created by coating a colorless piece of glass with one or more thin layers of colored glass. 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.
The colored glass can be partly or completely etched away (through exposing the piece in acid or sandblasting), resulting in colorless spots where the colored glass is removed.
Flashed glass can be made from various colors of glass. A finished piece of flashed glass appears translucent.
