NeoCon Preview – Joel Berman Glass
May 15, 2008
Transition is a revolutionary new technique from Joel Berman Glass. The method involves casting that allows an area of deeply embossed texture to transmute fluidly to smooth, flat, transparent glass in the same panel.
This recently perfected technique represents a radical departure from convention in terms of kiln-casting methods, and an important advancement in glass forming technology. The technique allows the beauty and translucency of texture to be combined with the clarity and transparency of clear glass in the same panel.
Privacy is achieved in a desired area while the purity of clear glass is attained in another. Imagine, for example, a room where the walls are made of Transition glass. As the eye moves to the top portion of the space the glass becomes transparent and the inside of the room can be clearly distinguished.
