Glass painting – a broad field

Today the term “glass painting” is generally used for various glass treatments. It ranges from the modern glass design of the 20th and 21th century to the traditional methods of historical styles. The conventional methods of glass painting techniques like painting and glazing are also relevant in the modern process. Thus we are using (coloured) sometimes mouth blown glasses that are cut into shape. In glass painting we are also applying additional techniques such as:

  • various painting techniques
  • sand blasting
  • etching
  • bonding techniques

Floatglass painting – a technique which creates new techniques

Floatglass painting is a modern technique of painting on window glass also named float glass. The process can be achieved by means of glass painting, airbrushing, screen-printing, etching or sand blasting. Options: Panes up to 150 x 250 cm or even bigger, pane thickness in commercially available float glass measures. Processing to ESG, TVG, VSG. Drillings, formings, etc. are also possible.

Mosaic – pieces of art in perfection

Mosaic is a collective term for the wide range from classical to modern mosaic techniques. With diverse materials and application techniques, artists and architects have interesting possibilities to create works of art.

It is of the utmost importance how our skilled mosaic tilers implement these techniques. Our fascinating collection of assorted stone-, glass- and gold-mosaic materials in hundreds of colours is as valuable as our long-standing tradition and experience in producing and installing mosaics.
