GA Amazon Night Single Rod

The year was 2001 and it was Henry's birthday. He had never given himself a birthday present so he figured it was time to change that. Four days later on October the 9th Amazon Night, 987 was born. His baby is a beautiful green with silver that produces amazing strikes and silver lustres. This colour is also our preferred method for testing for a neutral flame. Also available in frit, this colour is a must have for every studio!

Working Tip: Flame or kiln strike at 1075°F.  Work neutral; reduce at end for metallic effects.

GA Sno White Single Rod

White is a necessary and ironically very difficult colour to make in glass. Tin based whites have been made in the past but have not been very successful. We wanted the rich deep white associated with tin so we spent many years drilling down on the final formula. Today’s Sno White, 9995 is the highest saturated white on the borosilicate market.
Working Tip: Heat slowly to raise the core temperature. Once the heat base is established, this colour can be worked very hot and any air bubbles that popped during the preheat will smooth out. Getting this colour white hot will cause excessive gas release that can not be repaired and should therefore be avoided.

GA Turquoise Single Rod

Turquoise, 445 was inspired by Southwest American Indian art. To mimic natural turquoise we wanted a colour that would develop organic red highlights within the green colouration like the stone.

Working Tip: Work this colour in a neutral flame. Garage at 975° F, Anneal at 1050° F. Use of reduction at the end of the project can produce subtle red tones.

GA Grape Single Rod

Grape, 773 was one of the first purple tones in the borosilicate palette. Grape, 773 is a dark translucent rod and the rich nature of its colour really pops when applied over white. In sculpture it will reflect black and transmit purple light.
