Colors will vary in hand made glass.
Because of the nature of the manufacturing process and that it is hand made, minute changes in raw pigment, glass material, oven and ambient temperature can all affect the final result. Glass produced in the morning could be a shade different from one made the same afternoon. Color can vary even more when production runs are weeks apart.
Of course, Strini Art Glass, controls the basic color and attempts to match the best we can. We have worked with all colors extensively and agreed on a acceptable range of shades for each basic color. All colored glass provided by Strini Art Glass has been inspected and found to be within our color limits.
Please accept this with our best intentions of supplying you with a distinguished hand blown, museum quality piece of blown, fused and or slumped art glass, signed by Rick Strini.
