ART GLASS IN NEW YORK

The Glass is a universal material not only for protecting home and creating comfort. It is also widely used for other 

purposes - for example, to create beautiful and original home decorations or costume jewelry. 

This type of glass is called "Art Glass" and has a rich history.

Glass is the unique material that can be processed in a variety of ways and get beautiful, eye-catching things. 

The refraction of light in glass is one of its main features.

The creation of facets and engraving makes it possible to make this refraction truly bewitching.

Art glass can also have different colors. The quality of glass is determined by the quality and depth of 

color - it should not have sagging, streaks, stains.

Another criterion for of glass quality is uniformity throughout its thickness, the absence of bubbles and other defects.

Uneven engraving, crooked edges, unpolished chips, uneven shape of the product - all of these are low-quality blanks that 

should not reach the consumer.

Making art glass is a real art. Not only the new technologies are involved. It is also important to show imagination, 

develop the design of the future product, because its success in the market directly depends on this.

 

Artistic processing and cutting of glass

As mentioned above, the same ingredients are used to make art glass as for ordinary glass. But the technique of its 

processing and manufacturing is strikingly different.

Artistic processing of glass allows you to create real masterpieces from this versatile material. 

Both blanks and finished products can be processed.

There are some of the most popular methods of artistic glass processing:

Sandblasting. It is a method when a jet of sand is directed at the glass surface under high pressure. 

In this case, stencils can be used in order to set a specific pattern. The sand creates scratches and chips 

on the glass surface, creating a type of art material called frost.

Glass carving and artistic glass cutting, with the help of which original patterns are obtained. 

Carving can be carried out mechanically, using abrasive wheels, then immersing the glass in a special chemical solution. 

As a result, the glass acquires an intricate pattern and "diamond play".

 

Acid Etching that is made with the help of special chemical solutions. As a result, frosted glass or glass 

with a transparent pattern is obtained.

 

Artistic glass cutting, which can be used to obtain glass of the unique shape or elements for stained glass and mosaics. 

To do this, special tools are used, and after cutting, the edges of the glass are polished to avoid cuts.

Art glass frosting

 

In addition to the above glass processing methods, Sandblasting is also used. Frosted glass does not transmit much sunlight, 

it is almost opaque, but it is used quite often for artistic purposes.

Artistic frosting of the glass is often carried out chemically using hydrofluoric acid. It is the application of complex or 

simpler ornaments and patterns on a sheet of glass or mirror.

The sandblasting method can also be used for glass frosting. Pressurized sand creates a variety of patterns and makes the 

artwork complete and original.

A special protective layer is applied to those areas that need to be left transparent. After that, the product is 

immersed in acid and etched.

Artistic glass frosting allows you to create real works of art, original and complete.
