UROBOROS and SPECTRUM UPDATES


Oceanside Glass Tile has begun making Spectrum Glass.

As of June 9, Oceanside has announced they have started to roll sheet glass. After 70 trailer loads of material, months of construction and testing, the first sheets are coming off the production line.

Sunshine has 150 colors on order and Oceanside will be working through the list. Right now, there is no schedule at this time for any shipments. All will depend on what is produced, when it is produced and when a critical mass (ie. enough glass worth shipping) is reached.

We still have LOTS of Spectrum and Uroboros styles in stock. Many have hundreds and thousands of square feet available, others are down to just a few sheets or only half sheets, and as is the case around the world, we are out of stock on several colors.

If you have a need, give us a call at 800-828-7159 to see how we can help you.

Latest Update from Oceanside
Oceanside has started production. CLICK HERE to read their news release from 6/6/2017

And CLICK HERE to view a short video showing glass (SP 100 SDY) coming off the end of the line.

LAST OF THE FUSERS RESERVE

We have many styles of Fusers Reserve available now. These are one of a kind styles that may never be made again, including styles that Craig Barker (owner of Spectrum Glass) had a hand in production.

Some styles we have hundreds of square feet available and others not nearly as much. If you see a style you like, get your order in while our supply holds out.

CLICK HERE to see all that are available, and if you're in Buffalo, stop by the shop and browse through the racks for even more variety.

FUSERS RESERVE ASSORTMENTS

Assortments include the newest Reactive Fusers Reserve (shown above) as well as more "standard" assortments including Streaky Opals, Opal Arts and perhaps even some Spirit Glass.

NEW DURABITS - LONG LASTING DIAMOND GRINDING BITS

These new AMERICAN MADE bits are a great value!

  • Last 4 Times Longer than electroplated bits. More diamond is exposed as the surface wears down
  • Grinds Faster. Less pressure required and less wear and tear on your grinder
  • 100% Safe to Use with Fused Glass - electroplated bits can leave a metallic residue on the glass and this residue can cause unwanted effects
