The fascinating characteristics of the material glass, its transparency and reflection, mean that it is ideal for an enormous range of creative uses. Glass art plays a key role in the design of contemporary architecture, helping to increase the visual impact of buildings – glass is also powerful in the context of individual objects, giving expression to spectacular works of art.

Creating master pieces with glass requires detailed knowledge of the characteristics of this material. This applies to such things as design with colour – be it translucent, opaque or transparent, a metallic shimmer or a mirror effect, BGT offers a wide range of processing and design possibilities for this versatile material.

This is why BGT is happy to be of assistance to artists with its experience and know-how, and is always open to the possibility of working together to develop new solutions. Just as every artistic creation begins with a vision, BGT is guided by the urge to ensure that these visions are made reality with perfect technical execution.

An important example is given by the glass stele by renowned artist Gerhard Richter, which was created in cooperation with BGT. It demonstrates the great potential of this material, and provides an impressive example of how artists can adopt a new form of expression – with glass.
