Pennsylvania Art Glass in known for their use of the highest quality crystal and a technique called veiling. Veiling is a process where a thin metallic coating is applied to the surface of molten glass and covered by another layer of clear crystal, capturing the color. The studio????s years of experimenting with different metals and chemical formulas results in pure, brilliant and unusual colors. All of the pieces are hand formed using wooden blocks and newspaper.
