Dalle De Verre

Dalle de verre is a French term meaning “slab of glass”. Kokomo Dalle De Verre is approximately 93 COE and not compatible with System96 glass.
Types of Dalle De Verre
Solid Color Dalle De Verre: Single color dalles are almost always transparent (cathedral) color formulas that are modifications of the 125 year old sheet glass colors.
Streaky Dalle De Verre: Streaky colors and combinations are created by dropping small pieces of KOG sheet glass, a few at a time, into the pot containing the base color. The base color is most often clear. The production team waits a few minutes for the sheet glass to melt before ladling and pouring into the mold. It is the back and forth fashion of the pour that creates the streaky design.
The most traditional use of slab glass is for faceted projects where the glass is either chipped with a special hammer or cut with a wet saw to desired shapes. The shapes are then epoxied with a specific material designed for glass into a pattern often referred to as the cartoon. In addition architects and artists are using the form of glass in a variety of other ways for wall tile, furniture, sculptures, metro lens, gazebos, fountains, and even awards.
We regularly use Dalle De Verre glass slabs for casting and for testing of a casting mould before using more expensive casting glass. Hot colours can devit or opacify at casting temperatures - each slab is approximately 12 inches by 8 inches and 1 inch thick and weighs around 3.8kg.
