When we purchase glass for our customers, we try to select pieces that we would feel comfortable having. We hold ourselves to a high quality standard, and try our best to work with people that we truly believe in as glass artists and glassblowers. 


What is the difference between scientific glass and heady glass?

Heady is basically the use of advanced glassblowing techniques for a more visual effect. These techniques can be used together or individually and include; color, sculpting, accents, marbles, millies, facets, fuming, sandblasting, electroforming, and more.  Heady pieces are individualized and extremely unique and visually striking in their color, etc.  Scientific glass is a much cleaner, sleek look.  Most of the time, the use of color on scientific glass, and instead aims for a clearer, more refined laboratory look.
