Cast Glass is the process where molten glass is placed into a mould to solidify into a specific shape or object. The process dates back to the Romans who created basic vessels, yet today we think of cast glass being used for purely decorative and artistic purposes. It is also commonly used for countertops, furniture, art installations, and decorative doors.
We are beginning to see more experimentation with cast glass as an architectural application. Take a look at these cast glass bricks. The freedom of modularity, strength, size, transparency, color and texture are endless. The applications and freedom of design with glass is an ever-changing research field. Cast glass allows for more design while bringing a level of artistic freedom to a building. The way we use glass in construction has an exciting and vibrant future.
