Charleston Forge Frosted Glass

Frosted Glass

Although similar in appearance to acid-etched glass, frosted glass is created by sand-blasting the underside while the top remains glossy. Available on clear and ultraclear glass.

Charleston Forge Fusion Pebble Specialty Glass

Fusion Glass

On Ultraclear or Clear Glass

Fusion is made of multiple layers of clear glass that are fused together in an oven. Clear glass has a noticeable blue tint to it, while the low iron content of ultraclear glass leaves it with only a pale blue tint. Available in four different bottom textures.

Charleston Forge Laminated Linen Specialty Glass

Oyster Linen Laminate Glass

On Ultraclear Glass

As the name suggests, this glass is created by sandwiching a piece of linen in between two pieces of glass. They are then bonded using super-strong adhesives. Also available mirrored.

Charleston Forge Clear vs Ultraclear Glass

Clear vs. Ultraclear Glass

The clarity of glass is determined by its iron content. Clear glass will, under some conditions, appear to have a green tint.

With a lower iron content than that of clear glass, Ultraclear glass is much clearer. However given the right lighting conditions and background, it can still be perceived as having a hint of green.

With the exception of Fusion glass, clear glass is specified on all Charleston Forge standard product. If Ultraclear is desired on anything but Fusion glass, it must be custom ordered.

A Note About Glass Color

Please bear in mind that the look of glass is heavily influenced by the color and intensity of the light passing through it as well as the environment around it. On top of this, the varied color balance settings of individual monitors will also affect the color of the images seen here.
