Dallas Custom Glass Designs
For glass with a completely unique obscurity, consider glue chipping.
Glue Chipping is a very old art form used frequently around the turn of the last century. Basically a special glue is applied to the surface of clear glass causing the surface to chip away in unique, fern-like or frost-like designs. No two pieces will ever be the same. The process is hand-done, and due to a variety of variables, results are dramatic, not predictable, and always fascinating.
Glass can be chipped over the entire surface of the glass or it can be contained within a prescribed area for creative results.
Whether you are adding a design to your shower glass, customizing your cabinet doors, or creating signage, you are adding your signature to your surroundings, glass etching or glass sandblasting can add that perfect touch.
Etched patterns can be simple or complex. They can be merely a focal point or they can be a complete scene. Adding text is no problem, and custom logos are easily replicated from black-and-white line art.
JPON Glass has recently installed a Vytek Laser Etching and Cutting system which allows us to produce beautiful engravings on various surfaces. Creations can be made from original art, photographs, digital images, printed material, etc. Anything that can be scanned or saved to disk can be incorporated into a timeless piece. Larger applications can be tiled – etched as one design on multiple pieces of material.
Laser Etchings can be done on: Marble, Granite, Glass, Slate, Wood, Ceramics, Leather, Anodized Metals, Corian, Plastics, And More…
Fine detail can be managed to produce parts needing low-tolerance accuracy and finished edges. The range of cutting applications is huge – from scientific component parts to functional pieces to highly interesting decorative objects.
Laser Cutting can be done on: Acrylic, Paper, Cardboard, Wood
