Public Art Glass

A magnificent way to enhance the architecture, our windows bring an added Aesthetic to the building.

With many added considerations, a Public piece of art is a collaborative effort where we incorporate your ideas with our experience to create a beautiful work of art. The evolution of the design is more than half of the work that goes into creating a piece of architectural art glass, and we appreciate the knowledge you bring.

Our philosophy is that our art is an evolution, progressing from rough idea to finished project. We do this through many pictures, samples and visits, making sure the project not only meets our standards, but more importantly, yours.

We know we can create a unique Art Glass Window that will bring into focus the beauty of your building.
