Custom Art Glass Work in Progress with TreeJay understands that enjoying the process is key to creating glass and metal artworks that inspire the imagination of the viewer. Here you will get a "behind the scenes" view of Jay's creative process with glass casting, glass etching, slumping, metal working, and more.

The manufacturing and design process for architectural glass components often varies from piece to piece, but always keeping in mind the core steps required to create an artwork that is not only visually stunning, but structurally sound. A well made work of glass art will stand the test of time when exposed to the elements, and the time and expense invested will pay off for years or even decades, creating a timeless and long-lasting impression.

The processes you will see on these pages inlcude tack fusing, glass slumping, laser cutting, water jet cutting, glass etching, stained glass designs, and more. Jay's art glass designs typically begin with a hand drawn illustration, and are often combined with computer generated graphical elements when needed. We think you'll agree that the end results are stunning!
