| how to use the collections
Making your art glass
One of the first and most striking differences between
our work and other offerings is that we incorporate stage
blasting and shading into the designs. All of our work is
handcrafted, and most of the designs in our collections have
multiple stages that are etched one at a time to produce a
superior design that gives our work a noticeable sense of
depth and dimension. We're sure you'll agree the quality is
unsurpassed, the price unbeatable.
Finding a design
Use this website to select the designs you are interested
in. You may browse through all of the artwork or use the keyword
search to find designs that meet your specific criteria.
Resizing the artwork to fit your glass
All artwork will be resized to fit your piece of glass. How
it is resized will depend on the specific design, as well
as the size (and shape) of your glass. Here are the general
- Designs Without Borders... are
scaled so the proportions remain the same regardless of
glass size (within specified limits).
- Designs With Borders... are
scaled by extending/shortening the straight lines; line
thickness and corner detail size don't change.
- Enlarging specific elements within
a design... Specific elements within a design can
be enlarged as long as they do not touch other elements
in the design not being enlarged. There may be a limit to
how large an element can get.
Modifying or flipping artwork
Artwork cannot be modified, but can be flipped to face the
opposite direction shown (i.e. for a left and right door).
Overlaps and other details
We plan for a 1" overlap on sliding doors. If you desire
a different overlap and want a more precise alignment of the
artwork, or if you have other specific expectations, please
notify us in advance and we will do our best to accommodate
Reverse etching and carving
Many of the designs in the collections may be reverse etched
or carved. Please contact us if you are interested and we
will let you know if it can be reverse etched or carved and
what additional costs might be incurred.
Finding a dealer
Once you have found a design, you will need to find a dealer
to provide the glass, hardware and installation. Unless the
piece is to be carved, we prefer to work on glass that has
already been tempered. Please contact
us or visit our finding
a dealer page for referrals.
