The Glass

Onyx Glass uses clear Spruce Pine Glass supplied by Glass Axis to make each piece. This glass is melted in a furnace to a temperature of 2100°F and must be maintained at over 1000°F until finished and placed in an annealing oven to slowly cool to room temperature.

 

All colored pieces use glass frit, small pieces of colored glass shards. Colored glass possesses various metals and metal oxides to give it a characteristic color.
