   We are a small commercial stained and leaded glass company producing
top lights,door panels, side panels and specialised pieces. At present we
have pieces secured to our walls and*** in our disply windows by
wire, we would
like to improve the way we display our produce, we are confined for space
and are looking for new, inexpensive ways of improving, and back lighting
or direct lighting  our displays! Any Ideas.

David,

  It depends on how much light your store has.  One local SG store
here ran out of window space and built a small anteroom in their shop
that uses mirrors everywhere to throw light back through their flat SG
items like suncatchers and panels.  You could make use of the
inexpensive 12" mirror tiles you find at Walmart or such.

you may want to consider photographing your (beveled glass windows)
against an out-of-focus sun-dappled backround, eg: leaves on trees, or
bushes, or tree branches, from indoors looking outdoors (through the
windows), then having that negative made into (not sure of precise name)
into a "color positive" (film image, but is like a photo) that can be
displayed IN your store, kind of like huge, oversized color slides, on top
of a (wall-mounted, perhaps?) lightbox...most photo processors can
accomodate you...

displaying beveled glass windows against walls (or against -any- "close
objects") is never gonna look good ...
