“The beauty of these products is that you can live with them every day,” said Mary Lynn Bruce, Marketing Manager for Pittsburgh Corning. “They are works of art that are durable and can add to the mood of your space while also providing security and privacy.”
Pittsburgh Corning’s art glass blocks are individual glass blocks that can be placed within a wall to create any pattern or design. Design fans looking to add a mural to their décor can choose any one of Pittsburgh Corning’s 17 different glass block mural designs. Loved for their beautiful focal point ability, glass block murals come as individual blocks and require simple assembly.
Each block is hand-decorated by glass artisans with vibrant colored glass. The finished art is then fired onto the face and the color becomes part of the glass block. The color is fused to one side of the glass block, and visible from the reverse side with subtle distortions from the DECORA® pattern. These colorful glass blocks can be mixed with other glass block patterns to form a wall panel of great beauty with the ambience of glass art. The color will not fade over time, but will retain its beauty indefinitely.
Glass blocks can be used in windows in any room of the house. They can also be used in interior walls to let light between spaces while providing privacy. Showers are also popular places to use glass block in a home and can be customized with a designer shower kit portraying whimsical art block designs.
