The Thames, kiln cast and sandblasted

M Restaurant in Canary Wharf. A new restaurant we were asked to supply kiln cast glass for in 2022. Designer Rene Dekker has done a great job with this huge restaurant which over looks the Thames. The processes involved were kiln casting over the top of heat resistant matt, the glass then melts to the forms cut out at a temperature of 900’C. When the glass has cooled it was then masked with vinyl and sandblasted to create the matt surface, leaving the river clear. It was fitted in front of a long mirror making the river shine.
