ABOUT GLASSLIGHT

Glasslight is one of the few studios in the world producing Brilliant Cut Glass on an architectural scale. Rich Samsel, who founded Glasslight in 1972, has perfected the hand cutting and polishing of precise designs into large panels of glass by means of a suspension system of his own design.

BRILLIANT CUT GLASS

Brilliant cutting produces one of the most elegant and visually dynamic forms of glassworking that can be used to highlight an architectural setting. A prismatic display of light and shadow is created as light is transmitted through and reflected by the faceted surfaces of cut glass. Cutting is accomplished through a four step engraving and polishing process that produces a finished design of superior brilliance. Glasslight artisans are able to precisely hand cut designs into panels of glass up to one inch in thickness and 300 pounds in weight.

WORKING WITH GLASSLIGHT

Glasslight will work closely with you during all phases of your project's development. To achieve optimum results, consult with Glasslight during the initial design phase so that project design and execution may be planned in parallel. This will allow time for exploration of the broadest range of possibilities for your project-- both technical and aesthetic-- before the design is finalized.

Glasslight has a long-standing reputation for delivering flawlessly executed work on schedule and within budget. Completed work is shipped fully insured via professional art transport services. References are available upon request.
