ARTISAN Kiln-fused GLASS
The warm glass process involves heating glass in a kiln or oven to incorporate texture, shape and visual interest, typically by fusing multiple pieces of glass together. The process is called "warm glass" because it involves kiln temperatures below 2000 degrees Fahrenheit.
Producing beautiful warm glass to precise measurements is equal parts art and science. Since glass expands and changes its composition at higher temperatures, it comes out of the kiln in a very different state than it goes in. Preparing glass for kiln firing requires enormous precision to achieve the desired aesthetic characteristics as well as the exact measurements specified by a given fixture design. Firing protocols are equally precise, since each glass type requires a unique firing schedule of varying time lengths in the kiln at six or more temperature levels.
Hand POLISHED METAL FABRICATION
Hammerton began as a humble blacksmith shop over two decades ago, but we’ve come a long way since then. Indeed, harnessing the full design potential of steel involves far more than a hammer and anvil.
In fact, it involves a versatile team of world class designers, engineers and artisans disciplined in a broad range of old and new fabrication processes. Time-honored skills like forging, sculpting and texturing bring hand-hewn aesthetic detail to traditional fixtures, while high precision CNC machining technologies facilitate the clean lines, geometric forms and polished surfaces of contemporary designs, as well as higher quality and lower cost.
