Grav’Or, technical and authentic know-how

To do this, Grav’or surrounds itself with the best craftsmen. Professionals who put their passion and skills at the service of different projects and creative desires. A know-how rich in different manufacturing techniques, starting with cutting and shaping. This is the first step before the glass is transformed. Other expertise includes engraving and sandblasting. Carried out by hand or by machine, they add relief and originality to the glass. Then comes the lacquering, which can be chosen from all the Grav’Or finishes such as eglomerate, natural earth, ice color, and many others. Then there is painting, which can be combined with a multitude of finishes, each more original than the last. And finally, gilding, with copper, gold, or palladium, to embellish the various glass panes. These techniques were praised by Signatures Singulières Magazine.

Polymorphic decorative glass can be imagined as a unique piece

A noble material with infinite and unique transformations, glass can be combined in all sorts of styles and aspects. It can be used to decorate or cover walls, cloches, showcases and curved glass… It can be used to dress up the most beautiful projects. Other advantages include a feeling of purity, ease of maintenance and a very appreciable hygienic aspect. Sandblasted glass, engraved glass, lacquered glass or even gilded glass, glass can also be decorated. There are many different finishes in the creation of wall coverings. Lacquered glass is one of the most durable and elegant types of wall cladding and blends in well with other materials. It also brings light and contrasts to interiors. As for the bells and windows, they are made of extra-clear and safety glass, which ensures very high resistance. Custom-made or atypically shaped, they highlight the products on display while adding a touch of elegance.
