Stained-glass and mirror surfacing

Meshglass is a flexible tiling system comprised of stained-glass and mirror pieces connected to a fiberglass mesh backing. Designed to overlay complex, curvilinear surfaces, Meshglass is fabricated using specially developed software that allows custom patterns to be generated directly via the company’s webpage. This software issues specific codes utilized in the manufacturing process based on each unique design.

The glass is hand stained, kiln fired, and cut into an eighth of an inch (0.3 centimeter) thick pieces before being adhered to the fiberglass mesh. The glass is UV stable and 100 percent recyclable. Meshglass is appropriate for most horizontal and vertical surfaces, including ceilings, walls, columns, counters, backsplashes, pools, baths, but is not recommended for flooring.
