How we make
We specialize in creating contemporary kiln formed glass and etching.
With over 10 years’ experience in the craft sector we are committed to achieving the highest quality products, using up-to-date specialised equipment and technology.
Kiln forming glass involves the use of raw sheet glass of various colours and textures ranging from clear, reactive, translucent and opal coloured, texture, iridescent, decorative and dichroic glass.
A number of inclusions can be added such as powders, frit, stringers, metals and etching.
The glass is then slumped into or dropped over moulds.
The decorative possibilities and applications are only limited by the imagination!
All of our glass art is handcrafted in our studio in Moyallen, County Armagh.
The studio is fully equipped; with four kilns including a large kiln capable of taking the largest, retail produced, sheet glass. Together with sandblasting, cutting and polishing facilities.
Our etching equipment is able of reproducing, fine detail of, any reasonably sized image into the glass, so there are endless possibilities!
Highly trained staff are dedicated to producing products that not only define each pieces functionality, but also to create a strong visual attraction to ‘touch and feel the nature, outline and identity of each piece.
Our range of products, showcased on this website, is only a small selection of the items that can be produced.
If you have a particular requirement or wish to discuss a project, please contact us by phone or E mail
Our goal is; ’Not only to deliver a product that is certainly possible to be used functionally but also to cross the boundary of function to that of a work of Art’.
