Same Etched Glass Doors Design, High to Low Price

Sans Soucie Art Glass entry and interior glass doors are available in a wide range of prices, from cost effective etched glass to higher-end multi-stage sandblast glass etching.  Take for example the design shown in the glass below.  This is the same design, but the glass etching is completely different on each one.  Some are more private than others, but the main thing is the differences in the sandblast techniques.  Starting from highest to lowest:

$2,085 – 3D SCULPTURE CARVED & PAINTED. Insulated, Dual Pane Glass. A “multi-stage” sandblast where the artist sandblast carves the design, one small segment at a time, cutting deep into the glass, creating a sculpted, relief texture of varying depths. The edges of the carved shapes within the image will illuminate and appear whiter and brighter as they pick up and reflect the surrounding light. The carved glass has also been PAINTED. A minimum thickness of 3/8” THICK GLASS IS REQUIRED FOR 3D CARVING.
$1,560 – 3D SCULPTURE CARVED SANDBLAST. Single Pane 3/8″ Clear Temp. Glass. A “multi-stage” sandblast where the artist sandblast carves the design, one small segment at a time, cutting deep into the glass, creating a sculpted, relief texture of varying depths. The edges of the carved shapes within the image will illuminate and appear whiter and brighter as they pick up and reflect the surrounding light. A minimum thickness of 3/8” THICK GLASS IS REQUIRED FOR 3D CARVING
$1400 – DIMENSIONAL SURFACE ETCH SANDBLAST, on SOLID ETCHED GLASS. COMPLETELY PRIVATE. (Exterior, Dual Pane Unit). A “multi-stage” sandblast where the artist sandblasts the design, one small segment at a time. Similar to 3D Carved, a Dimensional Surface Etching has “shaded areas” where the sandblasting fades back out to clear glass. This creates a beautiful dimensional effect, but the sandblasting is on the TOP SURFACE ONLY, and is NOT cut deep into the glass, like 3D Carved Glass.
$970 – DIMENSIONAL SURFACE ETCH SANDBLAST. For Effect, not privacy. Single Pane, 1/4″ Temp Glass. A “multi-stage” sandblast where the artist sandblasts the design, one small segment at a time. Similar to 3D Carved, a Dimensional Surface Etching has “shaded areas” where the sandblasting fades back out to clear glass. This creates a beautiful dimensional effect, but the sandblasting is on the TOP SURFACE ONLY, and is NOT cut deep into the glass, like 3D Carved Glass.
$488 – SOLID POSITIVE SANDBLAST. COMPLETELY PRIVATE. Single Pane 1/4″ Temp. Glass. Also called “Solid Frost” or “Solid Etched Glass”. A “single stage” sandblast, the design has been sandblasted on the (front) surface, with the back surface solid etched overall, creating total privacy.
$488 – SOLID POSITIVE, PINSTRIPE SANDBLAST. COMPLETELY PRIVATE. Single Pane 1/4″ Temp. Glass. Also called “Solid Frost” or “Solid Etched Glass”. A “single stage” sandblast, the design has been sandblasted on the (front) surface, with the back surface solid etched overall, creating total privacy.
$405 – SOLID, NEGATIVE SANDBLAST. Single Pane 1/4″ Temp. Glass. Also called “Solid Frost” or “Solid Etched Glass”. A “single stage”, overall sandblast, the design is made up of thin, clear pinstripes, approx. 1/8″ thick.
