X-Glass is specialised in traditional art glass. We use stained glass, Tiffany glass, mosaic and melted glass techniques to create individual and custom made works. We do everything by ourselves in our shop in Porvoo. You can also purchase glass and equipment to your own art glass projects from our shop.
Liisa Heimo manages all art glass projects and courses. Her work can be found in our shop and on her website www.liisaheimo.fi.
Art glass restoration
Besides creating new art glass works, we also repair and restore older works. Projects can vary in duration depending on the scale and complexity of the task. A smaller project can for example be completed in a week or two while larger projects can take up to six months. Besides the restoration itself we also manage the sourcing of correct materials, installation and transportation of the works. All works are restored in our shop in Porvoo. Our previous work includes art glass restoration in following locations:
Honkanummen siunauskappeli, Vantaa
Restaurant Kosmos, Helsinki
Hotel Arthur, Helsinki
Melted glass courses for companies and groups
Have you or any of your friends ever wanted to create a work of melted glass? Or do you perhaps want to organise an event for your colleagues? We organise courses for small groups where we teach how to melt glass and create beautiful works of art. The course lasts for approximately 4-6 hours and during this time we walk you through the basics of melting glass tecniques, its history and how to plan your own work go about.
All participants get to take home their own work. Previous knowledge or experience is not required and we provide you with all the equipment and materials. The course is suitable for groups of 6-12 people and the course an be organised also during weekends.
