Uroboros COE 96 Glass


Uroboros System 96 Glass Products

System 96 is a family of fusible glass products designed and produced to work together both technically and artistically in every facet of the hot glass arts. They are produced jointly by Uroboros Glass and Spectrum Glass.

System 96 users are passionate about the brand. The glass is soft and forgiving to cut. Surfaces are largely smooth and uniform. Compatibility is assured, "devit" is practically non-existent, and the price is substantially less than competing products.  System 96 is the perfect expansion point glass for artists and schools who demand the most versatile glass available. Since most clear blowing glass in studios and schools worldwide is formulated around 95 or 96 COE, System 96 products are a single source material for work combining fusing, casting, torchworking, blowing and all points between. 
 

Shipping Saver:  You will be able to fit 10 - 12"x15" in a Medium Glass Box and 10 - 12"x24" or 15"x24" in a Large glass box, so why not fill-up the box?  The shipping won't be that much more! 

Remember:  5 piece minimum when ordering 12"x15" or 12"x24"/15"x24" Glass.  If there is other non Uroboros 16"x24" glass on the site you wish to purchase to meet the 5 piece minimum, you can mix and match them with the 15"x24" Uroboros glass, so mix or match! 

Important:  We can not ship one (1) or two (2) pieces of Medium or Large Glass at a time because of the risk of breakage.  The 5 piece minimum must be met! 
(10 pieces fill a Medium Box) $10.00  (10 pieces fill a Large Box) $12.00


Radium
is a geometric repeating sheet glass texture made of a uniform field of raised rounded lenses each about 1/4" (7mm) in diameter. When used with iridescent or dichroic coatings, or highlighted with a contrasting color powder or frit, the pattern is retained even after fusing or blowing. Radium adds a distinct look to designs ranging from snakeskin to sushi plates. It's also very attractive when iridized and fused face down onto a smooth surface.

Fracture and Streamer Sheet Glass:
Fracture glass, or 'Confetti' is made from eggshell-thin blown shards or flakes of intensely colored glass fused to the bottom of sheets during the rolling process. Use them in backgrounds to imply small scale repetitions of foreground features such as leaves or flowers. Fracture-Streamer glass is fracture glass combined with hand-stretched streamers or strings of glass. The irregular shaped streamers typically suggest twigs or branches in the background.

Streamer Bits sheets are delightful combination of hand-rolled ‘cats paw’ sheet glass and playful spritzes of short bits of stringer glass. Together they create a contemporary pattern useful on its own or in conjunction with other coloration effects. Try rubbing mica, or a contrasting color powder, into the seams next to the ‘bits’ to highlight and add complexity to the patterns.

Fracture and Stringer
sheet glass from Uroboros provides delightfully ‘crisp’ visual and color highlights for contemporary designs. Fractures are hand-blown, paper thin shards of intensely colored glass fused onto the back of the sheet during the forming process. Stringers are relatively straight pulled ‘strings’ of intensely colored glass. They are much more regular than the hand pulled streamers. Together Fractures and Stringer sheet glass creates a strong graphic design element.

Uroboros' System 96
 Streaky Glass is definitely unique! Strong puddles and streaks of colors, unique to our hand formed process, provide fabulous color contrast and long fades across the sheet surface.  Also, the top surface is now smoother than ever, resulting in a glossier and easy to cut sheet.  Using a controlled hand mixing process, Uroboros' craftsmen create unique variations on each color theme. Colors blend, fade, and streak in myriad ways, so no two sheets are alike, but all are related.
 

What's with the stripe on the pictures?  For most transparent colors, the area left of the diagonal stripe is fused over clear (lighter color), while the area to the right is fused over white opal (darker color).

Iridized Sheet Glass  is fully fusible and adds rich, reflective, color highlights and complexity to glass work. Rainbow irid is available on a wide range of glass styles, including many textures, and is renowned for its depth and saturation of color. Gold and Silver irid colors are available on clear or black smooth sheets and are great when specific or contrasting color designs are needed.

Mardi Gras
sheet glass evokes the beads and strings and riotous colors of Mardi Gras in New Orleans and brings a unique look to the world of glass.  Matched or complementary colors of stringer and frit are fused into the sheet during the forming process, creating a fun pattern with many possible uses.  Use in large pieces for dramatic, fun design elements in tableware or lighting fixtures. Small single layer dishes made from Mardi Gras sheets, fired and slumped in a single fairly cool firing, are among the quickest and easiest of fusing projects...yet still visually dramatic. You can also layer Mardi Gras two or three layers deep for a richer, more complex look. Or try cutting them into strips and 'shingling' them to add visual texture or background.
 

What's with the stripe on the pictures?  For most transparent colors, the area left of the diagonal stripe is fused over clear (lighter color), while the area to the right is fused over white opal (darker color).
