March 13, 2017

TEMPE, March 10, 2017- It's never a boring day when you work at Meltdown Glass Art & Design. This Monday, employees created a new linear texture that would attract various clients. “We wanted to appeal to modern designers who still have a love for organic nature-inspired designs.” The texture, recently named Coastal, was created by hand at their Arizona based factory. It can be used in kiln-fired glass installations ranging from large monolithic feature walls, privacy partitions, counter and tabletops, signage, doors, cabinets, water features, and more. Meltdown Glass creates panels as large as 90” x 150” and that range in 1/4” to 3” in thicknesses. Visit the website at to see hundreds of their decorative glass installations.
