Traditional display methods typically include shelving to offset and promote the object of visual focus. There is no material better than glass to accomplish the dual goals of support and aesthetic beauty. The finished edges on a glass shelf attractively refract the light, creating a pleasing effect without detracting from the pieces on display.
Glass thickness is determined by strength and visual considerations. Shelves can be built into an existing wall or cabinet, or designed to be mounted with hardware chosen from a selection of styles. Of particular interest is ‘ultra-clear’ glass, which, as the name implies, is crystal clear and adds no additional coloration when being viewed through the surface.
