Slumped Glass is the term given to glass that as been exposed to extreme temperatures, returning the glass to a molten like state at which point it begins to “Slump” over the pattern or mould beneath it creating a perfect replica. The technique of slumping glass allows intricate imagery, design elements and even text to be moulded into a panel of glass in great detail.

Lisa de Boer,  has more than 20 years of knowledge and experience when it comes to Slumped Glass, as well as the wide range of different applications it can be used for. 

We service Australia wide as well as internationally, and unlike many other suppliers, we have the ability to slump glass here on the premises, with five different kilns of varying dimensions, we are well equipt to handle all shapes and sizes. You can rest assured when dealing with Glass Xpressions, you have the expert team of glass artists and design consultants guiding you every step of the way.

There are many types of Textured and Patterned Glass, most are produced using a similar process to the way in which Slumped Glass is created, and in fact in most cases the terms are interchangeable and often involve the same method of heating glass to extreme temperatures in order to change its form. 

The type of glass we are referring to, is that which is commonly used for shower screens, partitions and other decorative applications. The desired effect is merely to add a slight texture to the glass, either to obscure the clarity of a panel by using a basic or simple pattern allowing light to still pass through effectively, or in other cases such as splash backs and bar fronts, the textured glass panel can be back painted and adhered to walls or frame work to create an additional point of interest. By changing the glass texture in this way, you can introduce a subtle feature through the use of pattern and design.


Here at Glass Xpressions we have an extensive range of pattern glass designs on offer, and as they are all handmade, the glass texture and/or pattern can be modified to suite the individual look you are after.
