Etch It Up With Bear Glass!!!

Let us realize your vision in glass!!!

In the world of sandblasting there are two techniques, etching and carving. Etching is when abrasive is blasted at the glass lightly to give the glass a frosty appearance. Depending on the speed and angle the abrasive is being applied, different shades can be created, allowing the glass to be a true work of art. Carving on the other hand is when steadily sandblasting is done to the surface of a glass using stencil which protects the areas you don’t want to be carved out. Sandblasting as a technique for carving can be much nuanced, with differing depths and angles of cuts creating an array of lighting effects that may be quite beautiful.

Common to residential homes, there is a need for privacy in areas of the front entry or over a tub in the bathroom. These are areas where an elegant or sophisticated design can lend to the privacy desired along with adding beauty and character to a home. Etched glass designs add a great look to recreation areas and bathroom mirrors. Home bar mirrors with your own personal name for your get away create an interesting and elegant look for entertaining or personal enjoyment. Etched glass table tops have enhanced many dining rooms with sandblasted and carved designs.

Many of our clients prefer to have attractive etched glass signs pin mounted right above their reception desks which can also be lighted or colored with your corporate colors. These signs can be very versatile in function for the corporate office or small office environment. From company name recognition to adding an element of design, Bear Glass can provide the correct solution for your needs!

Let Bear Glass help you make a good first impression with your corporate logo sand blasted above your receptionist!!!

In many commercial environments, the need for name recognition is vitally important. By having your corporate logo/identity sandblasted onto the front entry doors or on a glass curtain wall in a conference room, you are establishing your name with your clients and showing a sense of pride in your company. Also, it is very helpful for clients in locating your office space in larger office buildings .

Glass etching on an entrance to a home or office creates a dramatic first impression like no other architectural material can. Etched glass entrys and etched glass doors are elegant and quite sophisticated, modern yet can be very classic. Even the best etched glass design is only as good as the technique used and its execution. Bear Glass can deliver on both quality and timeliness which is why leading architects and contractors rely on Bear Glass to make their glass etching vision a reality. It does not matter if the frosted glass design or frosted film pattern is in an office, restaurant, laboratory or an airplane, Bear Glass has the capability of performing this work on the job site, without the mess and dust of conventional systems, enabling any glass to be sandblasted anywhere that it may be located.

AT BEAR GLASS… WE CAN DO IT ALL!!!

Dive right in with Bear Glass!!!

Antique Mirrors

Our handmade antique mirrors have a natural and artistic finish, making each piece unique. Mirror antiquing, also known as distressed mirrors, is an important part of the design repertoire, transforming time and space. We offer multiple techniques to meet varying design requests. There are two distinctly different categories of Antique Mirrors. One has a decorative appearance while the other offers a more European style or realistic old world look and feel. Within each category are many styles to meet your requirements. Additionally, we welcome custom design requests.

Our Antiqued Mirrors are in homes, restaurants, casinos, on furniture and in hotels globally. We take pride in every custom Antique Mirror created and attention to detail is always our first and foremost concern.

Unfortunately many Antique Mirrors today are NOT HAND MADE, rather imported, mass-produced and machine made, which do not have an authentic old world look.  Please Beware. Also we do have antique mirror stock sheets available, if desired.

Mirror Resilvering

Our quality service will not disappoint!!!

Each Antique mirror has its one unique look and feel, such as type of bevel, etching / engraving, shape, seeds/bubbles, waves and glass color. Many are irreplaceable heirlooms which long to be restored to their original reflective brilliance and luster. In order to accomplish this we remove the original tarnished reflective coating, clean the original glass and redeposit a fresh silver layer then seal the silver to protect the reflective coating. This process will give an Antique Mirror its original clarity and reflective brilliance it originally had.

Glass Silvering

Glass silvering / mirroring is accomplished by chemically depositing a unique silver solution on glass creating a high quality reflective surface. Since our process is hand crafted, we not only deposit clear silver (Mirror) on glass, we have the ability to create an Antique Mirror as well.

Walter’s Mirror has the ability to silver any type of glass surface. Listed are just a few applications for silvering. Let your imagination be your guide.

  • Tempered Glass
  • Laminated Glass
  • Textured Glass
  • Patterned Glass
  • Colored Glass
  • Slumped and Bent Glass
  • Restoration Glass
  • Any thickness Glass can be silvered
  • Hand Blown Glass
  • Acid Washed or Sandblasted Glass
  • Glass Vases and glass Containers
  • All types of Glass can be Silvered
We can silver just about anything that will accept the silver.

The Story of Bear Glass

Work with us!!! You will be happy with our products and services!

It all started one day in 1923 when our great grandfather received a job delivering glass on the lower east side in Manhattan. He continued to learn the trade expanding his knowledge in flat glass. After 23 years of hands on experience, he finally purchased his own retail glass shop in 1946 which is still in business today. After 42 years working in the glass industry our great grandfather has retired passing on the business to his son in 1965. From this starting point we began to expand to a full service installation and distribution business until 1991 when Bear Glass was born.

Our papa bear joined us in 1995 with a vision to create a one stop glass shop offering numerous services for our customers. With his marketing ideas and business skills Bear Glass is one of the largest industry leaders today.

Bear Glass is a 4th generation family business which has grown substantially in the past years, it started from a small glass and mirror fabrication company to the full service multi facet and versatile business for all types of customers. We have constantly been a leader in exploring new fabrication technology in the glass industry as shown on our websites.

“Bear Glass Does Everything In  Glass”

 

We do anything in glass!!!

IT is an age-old process which grinds away the edge of the glass to produce a chamfered or decorative finish.
Too small for the machine to bevel. For example, clock face, compact mirror, barometer.
Shapes. Machines are great but have their limitations and cannot do some shapes. Beveling gives us the flexibility to cover most shapes.
Decorative finish. Bevels do not have to be straight. There are different types of finishes, such as cross bevel, scallop bevel and rope bevel.
