Soft, undulating optical distortions seen in antique glass fused with tiny pinpoints of light and shadow reminiscent of traditional seeded glass results in a captivating piece of art. As the saying goes, everything old is new again and our Retro Seedy Glass is just that. Our Cardinal Seedy Series kiln formed restoration glass harkens back to sheet glass made before the turn of the century and the advent of the modern-day float glass process. This thermally formed sheet glass is made in a revolutionary method allowing it to be utilized where traditional antique glasses cannot as it is tempered and comes in 3 different thicknesses: 6 mil, 10 mil and 12 mil, giving you the look of the old with the safety features and flexibility of the new. The elegance of this new classic comes from subtle optic distortions created by a galaxy of tiny surface irregularities on one surface of the glass. Unlike other patterned and rolled glass, Cardinal Seedy Series glass does not obscure the view, instead altering it giving it a rich, warm, and distinctive caricature sure to enhance many situations where the ordinary simply will not suffice.
