SPECTRUM GLASS

Spectrum is a manufacturer of specialty sheet glass for use in architecture, fine arts, hobby-craft, lighting and other applications. They produce nearly 250 glass products including Waterglass®, Baroque™, Artíque®, Iridescent Glass, multi-colour mixes and textured colours.

Spectrum Product Groups Include:

Cathedral Glass:
Transparent, single colour sheet glass, available with either smooth or textured surfaces.

Mixed Opalescent Glass:
One or more cathedral glasses combined with white opalescent glass to create a variegated, multi-colored sheet. Available with varying degrees of light transmission.

Opalized Glass:
Solid colour, opaque glasses. These non-variegated products are highly reflective in nature and thus especially popular for mosaic and mural application. With backlighting, natural or artificial, they reveal a captivating, luminescent glow.

Waterglass®:
A natural surface texture created by stretching the hot glass sheet while it is still in a pliable state. The result is gentle, rolling waves that resemble the surface of a lake or stream. A Spectrum exclusive.

Baroque™:
A "reamy" glass, produced by combining glasses of mis-matched compositions. The different glasses "oppose" each other when they are stirred together, creating artistic 3-D swirls. A Spectrum exclusive.

Artíque® A scribed "antique" glass, alive with the surface striations characteristic of mouthblown sheet glass. Artíque unites brilliant surface characteristics, delicate light refraction and subtle but definite background distortion. A Spectrum exclusive. Iridescent Glass:
A thin layer of metallic crystal has been bonded to these glasses during sheet forming, creating a colourful, shimmering surface effect.

SilverCoats™:
We’ve taken our unique art glass products and added a bright, reflective silver-coat to one side, turning specialty glasses into shimmering super-specialties perfect for projects that demand brilliance. SilverCoats reflect a rainbow of color and texture any time it’s called for.
A Spectrum exclusive.

The Nature of Art Glass:
Unlike common window glass, which is perfectly smooth and flawless, art glass seeks visual character through aesthetic "imperfections." These characteristics mimic the hand-made sheet glass of centuries past. They come in the form of textural waves and striations, random seeds (air bubbles) and a variety of other natural effects. Art glass achieves its personality through these peculiarities, and no two sheets are ever identical.

All glass will be cut into 12" x 12" squares for shipping. - PRICES SHOWN ARE PER PIECE, CUT, WRAPPED AND BOXED.
