High Heart Lead Came
High heart lead the channel is wider than standard came, and useful for plated glass (two pieces leaded together on top of each other) and for antique sheet glass that is irregular in thickness.
It’s also useful if you’ve slumped your piece and it’s a bit uneven.
- C = The Height. This is the total thickness of the section from top to bottom
- B = The Leaf, the Flange or the Face. This is what you see as the ‘lead lines’ when you look at a stained glass panel
- A= The Heart or the Channel. This is where the glass slots in. If you have very thick or fused glass you might need a high heart lead.
