Living with nature; cast glass and stone resonate together. This residential project pairs the duo to great effect, creating a serene, meditative environment . Using Meldown Glass' 'flowing linen' texture, one of 32 standard textures, this 108" high x 72" wide panel is fabricated in crystal clear starphire tempered glass. In kiln-worked glass, the glass is molded, colored and shaped in Meltdown's large industrial kilns at temperatures up to 1600 F. Artwork can be fired multiple times until the desired effect is achieved. Molds are one-off handmade molds, destroyed after firing. Positive texture molds were made, and from them original negative molds were created for each panel. Cast glass can be tempered, laminated or installed in fire-rated safety-glass wall systems. It lends itself equally to being integrated into architecture or added as desired to an existing facility or home. Meltdown Glass, under the artistic direction of artist BJ Katz, is dedicated to expanding the frontier of kiln-cast glass in architectural and sculptural applications.
All Meltdown Glass products are sold by the square foot. The price per square foot depends on the processes used to create the product, glass type, thickness, time spent in the kiln, and quantity. Price goes down as quantity goes up and discounts are given based on the specific conditions of each project. We try to help you find solutions that fit your budget.
Most Meltdown Glass products can be tempered to meet ASTM c1048 for safety rated glazing, and if required, our glass can be laminated and fire-rated. Other treatments and processes that can be achieved are insulated glazing, STC rated glass and glass curving. Our maximum panel size is 12' x 7'. We can offer suggestions regarding sourcing hardware for glass. All of our products are fabricated to meet the client specifications.
