Acid Etched glazing is glass that has been chemically treated with an acidic material to produce a surface finish that will diffuse transmitted light, reduce glare and has a "frosted" appearance. Suitable for both interior and exterior applications. Bent/curved glass is formed into a curved shape or profile using extreme heat and a frame. Various shapes are available and it is also available in laminated curved glass. Cast Glass is glass with a textured surface produced by pouring and pressing molten glass into a mold having the desired shape or pattern and heating to the temperature where the glass softens to the form of the mold.
Ceramic Frit glass is a pigmented glass enamel fired onto the glass at high temperatures and permanently fused to the glass surface. Available in many colours, patterns and translucencies. The unique beauty of Cast glass lies in the way light interacts with the texture. Fused glass is a decorative glass created by melting two or more glasses in a kiln and fusing them together to make art glass pieces or ornate tableware.
Cast glass is featured in many prominent murals and sculptures around the world. Channel glass is a structural glass system used for light transmitting walls and interior partitions in a variety of textures in a choice of hundreds of enamel colours.
