System 96 Glass

Glass

Transparent 

Transparent glasses boast their colour in all manner of transmitted light. These simple glasses are the foundation of traditional glasswork, and are available in a selection of colour and texture that is unmatched, anywhere. Nearly texture-free, Spectrum Smooths are a classic choice in every segment of the glass arts.

Transparent Streaky

System 96 Streaky Glass is unique! Strong puddles and streaks of colours, unique to our hand formed process, provide fabulous colour contrast and long fades across the sheet surface. And, the top surface is now smoother than ever, resulting in a glossier and easy to cut sheet.

Opalescent

Opalescent glass is mostly opaque, yet displays a muted, luminescent glow when backlit. Whether a colourful or neutral hue, smooth or textured surface, the rich tones of opalescent glass are a staple in every glass palette. Opals are the pure expression of visible colour and combined with Transparents, contribute the depth and refraction that makes art glass so appealing.

Specialty Glass

Red Reactive

Uroboros has created two unique glass formulas for System 96 that are designed to create an interface colour, or a ‘reaction’, when melted against certain other colours.

Opal Art and Crystal Opal

System 96  hypnotic Opal Art family embraces the moment when disparate glasses meet, and freezes it for all time. The resultant swirls of colour are magnificent, always unique, and deliver incomparable options in project design.

The translucent, almost ghostly quality of Crystal Opals distinguishes them from more common opalescent products. The glass gathers and disperses light like the crystal for which it is named.

Spirit and Adventurine

Nothing else approaches the celebratory excitement of this breathtaking Spirit Art Glass. Like the aftermath of a celestial explosion, sweeping comets of colour convey motion, energy and Spirit.

Firing this magical Adventurine Glass releases a galaxy of metallic flakes that are riveting…intense…. elegant.

Stringers, Frit and Wispy

Matched or complementary colours of stringer and frit are fused into the sheet during the forming process, creating a fun pattern with many possible uses.

Three fusible Wispies are available as Opalescent colour stirred into a Clear base.

Textures and Fractures

Texture is the personality of art glass, suggesting dimension, depth and contrast. In clear glass, texture is also useful for achieving varying degrees of privacy, while adding elegance and richness to living and working environments.

Fracture glass, or ‘Confetti’ is made from eggshell-thin blown shards or flakes of intensely colored glass fused to the bottom of sheets during the rolling process. Use them in backgrounds to imply small scale repetitions of foreground features such as leaves or flowers. Fracture-Streamer glass is fracture glass combined with hand-stretched streamers or strings of glass. The irregular shaped streamers typically suggest twigs or branches in the background.

Glass Packs

Our assortment of System 96 Glass Packs are the best way to get a variety of System 96 colours with a very reasonable investment.
