WHAT DOES CAME MEAN IN ENGLISH?

came

Came

A came is a divider bar used between small pieces of glass to make a larger glazing panel, sometimes referred to as "leaded glass", this process is then referred to as "leading". There are two kinds of came: the H-shaped sections that hold two pieces together and the U-shaped sections that are used for the borders. Cames are mostly made of lead, zinc, copper, brass or brass-capped lead. Of the metal strips, lead is softer and more flexible, making it easier to cut and bend. The harder metals are used to work with slightly curved lines and pieces that require greater structural support. They can also be used as border came, once again for stability and support.
