Dalle de Verre, also known as 'slab' glass or 'faceted' glass, is a
unique way of creating a wall which transmits light, provides aesthetics and
is an integral part of the architectural structure. Originally used in
Europe, this process is being adopted the world over due to it's strength,
versatility and the possibilities it provides to designers and architects.
The Dalle de Verre method is particularly appropriate with large spans of
space and where structural strength is required. With 144 available colours
there is virtually no design limit.
These coloured slabs (above and below) are a high quality
material, intended primarily for use by artists, architects and decorators,
and can be employed either in their entirety, or broken into selected
fragments for figurative or abstract art creations. Thus they are ideal for
both ancient and modern windows of cemented coloured glass slabs, and all
other art forms and applications in modern constructions, i.e. translucent
walls, where light and richness of colour can combine to brighten our life
and add interest to our existence.

intriguing and interesting, invite the viewer to guess at their identity.
