Blenko - Dalle De Verre
I bought the Dalle, now I need suggestions for what to do with them? I have 3 dozen in different colors. Help!
Joe, What to do? This is limited only by your imagination - people use them in showers, in their yard, in art projects, to etch, for sushi platters, just to add color in a window.
Readers do you have suggestions for Joe?
Blenko Glass website - doesn't list projects for the Dalle but does have the following information and this photo of colors once available at Blenko Glass.
Dalle De Verre (Slab Glass)
Blenko Glass Company began producing Dalle de Verre in the late 1950's when the process was brought to us from France, making Blenko the first United States company to produce dalles. Blenko dalles are hand cast from soda-lime-silica glass and come in a wide variety of repeatable colors. Our hand cast method has not changed since we began making dalles. Dalle de Verre is relatively easy to design and construct, and is an excellent alternative to traditional sheet glass installations. Sample sets are available.
