The beauty of glass is mesmerizing! They say glass represents clarity, perception and wisdom.

Since ancient times, the great artisans of Egypt, Assyria and Italy have been inspired by the special properties of glass to create attractive works of art. Glass can allow light to pass through it, giving it the ability to transform color and sparkle, bringing joy and happiness with just a gaze into its brightness.


When you want to recognize someone for their brilliance, a personalized plaque, award or gift made from crystal glass can capture their talents for all to admire. Ideal for celebrating life events, lifetime achievement awards, recognizing special employees, retirees and loved ones in your life or simply for decorating your home, glass or crystal are each a beautiful choice for prestigious trophies, professional plaques and treasured keepsakes.


Glass as a medium offers dazzling complexity – it can be dull or shiny, transparent, translucent or completely opaque; it can evoke the warmth of the sun or the cold of ice. Its surface can be honed smooth, sanded soft, textured rough and blown jagged. The ability of glass to capture and transmit light gives it remarkable color; however, few substances are as transparent or completely colorless as glass, which is why using crystal can set artwork apart from the rest.


Beauty That Lasts

Very hard and very fragile at the same time, glass can outlast other materials against age and the elements – if it doesn’t break first. Yet molten glass is active, alive and moving, able to be formed into anything an artist can dream. These characteristics can be seductive and elusive to one who loves glass, which is why glass is such a unique material. Since glass can stand the test of time, objects of personal or historical value made from glass can become symbols of love or aspiration, identity or a memory.
