Art Glass Awards

These magical art glass awards feature lyrical swirls, rhythmic patterns of suspended air bubbles, and free-flowing forms that make traditional glass awards into fascinating conversation pieces. Each one-of-a-kind awards is elevated perfectly on its optic crystal base for your engraving. Please be aware that all pieces of art glass are individually crafted and will vary as well as have minor imperfections. Those who do not understand the process of glassmaking usually judge the quality of glassware by seeking flawless perfection. 'Perfection' in every single item can only be achieved in machine-produced items, not artisan handmade glassware. No matter how experienced or talented the glassmaker, it is impossible to eliminate all small variations in custom glass awards. In fact, those variations is what makes art glass a unique piece of art.

Our art glassmaker's want you understand the following are traditional marks of handmade glass, not imperfections:

  • Tiny Bubbles - Called seeds, these bubbles are formed by gases when the raw ingredients for glass are melted. Seeds do not affect the quality of the glass or its beauty.
  • Stretch Marks - Referred to as a cord in the industry, these lines are only visible from certain angles of light. The lines are a difference in density that occurs during the melting process.
  • Mold Marks - Ridges on a molded glass piece indicate where the mold was separated from the piece. An overly prominent mark can be a sign of careless workmanship.
  • Shear Mark - This is the slight puckering of the glass caused when an artisan snips off molten excess after shaping the piece, it is a normal characteristic of glass.
  • Pontil Mark - On some glass pieces you will find a small indentation on the bottom. This is the pontil mark and confirms that the piece was handmade. The indentation shows where the glass was attached to the pontil in the final step of fire polishing. Handmade stemware is attached from the bowl end with the glass cut away at the rim. This leaves no indentation.
