Art Glass and Our Business
Art glass can be used in a variety of applications. Also, in many cases, our designs can be installed over existing windows, and most of the work is done in our studio, so there is little installation time, minimizing disruption to your home or business. Take a look at our etched and stained glass design pages for examples.
Etched Glass is created through a process of applying a design to glass or mirror and using an abrasive under high pressure to "etch" the design into the glass. The etching process can be done on almost any type of glass: tempered, laminated, mirrored, plate, or art glass.
There are several techniques to etching glass, ranging from surface etching, which is two dimentional, to carved glass, which provides a three dimensional look. Some common applications for etching include interior and exterior door, cabinet doors, shower doors, room dividers, fireplace screens, and mirrors.
Traditionally, stained glass was used to decorate windows in churches and elegant Victorian homes. Now there are many more applications and we are using not only colored glass, but various textures of clear glass. For instance, many of our customers are looking for an entrance door or sidelights which will distort the view but still provide light into the foyer. Utilizing different textures of clear art glass, we can create a beautiful design which will accomplish both goals. The same design concepts can be used in bathrooms and other areas where privacy and light are primary requirements.
