"Every child should have mud pies, grasshoppers, waterbugs, tadpoles, frogs & turtles, elderberries, wild strawberries, acorns, hickory nuts, trees to climb, animals to pet, hayfields, pine cones, rocks to roll, sand, snakes, huckleberries and hornets – and any child who has been deprived of these has been deprived of the best part of his education." -Luther Burbank 1849 - 1926

The secrets of glass tiles

Windows are both a portal into nature and a drain on our energy resources. It is difficult to find a nice balance between light and wasted energy. Shades and drapes are options. Cloudy glass is another option. Colored glass is yet another option that adds beauty and conservation simultaneously. Any way you look at it, glass is one of the miracles of nature that mankind has harnassed and shaped into an amazing array of art forms.

Glass tile offers unparalleled depth and beauty.

Diamond Tech Glass Tile launches its premier glass tile line, inspired by cathedral glass windows. The Stained Glass Series made it’s premiere debut for this 25 year old company at the 2004 NEOCON Show in Chicago, where it won Best Of Show. “Inspired by cathedral glass windows, our Stained Glass Series Tiles have an unparalleled depth of color and richness you have to see to believe,” explains Dan Daniels, President of Diamond Tech Glass Tiles. “Each tile has an opalescent stained glass appearance, possessing colorful swirls and streaks.”

Tiles can be used as a focal point or as a neutral back-drop complimenting many of today contemporary and traditional building materials. Each glass tile has its own individual character while maintaining the color schemes desired by today’s architects and interior designers.

The Stained Glass Series offers an assortment of 30 Opalescence Glass Tiles. Its opalescent nature makes the color and grain of each tile vary , creating a custom, handcrafted look every time it is used.
