The rich texture of sand blasted glass gives you more than classic aesthetics. The sand blastingtechnique is used to obscure visibility through glass, but the glass continues to transmit light as it is diffused through the surface. Hence, it protects the privacy of people in a workplace or home without taking away openness and reflectiveness which are the best features of the medium of glass.
At Impala Glass Industries, Kenya, this process of blasting the surface of glass with grit using high-velocity steam or air, gives it a lovely, textured, milky white appearance. The depth and degree of the translucency of the sand-blasted finishing can be varied with the force and type of sand used. Only the areas that are to remain transparent are masked for protection—this may be in the form of fonts, designs or patterns.
Sand carving carried out by blasting away the glass for longer periods to get layers of depth gives a surreal three-dimensional affect. The other option is using a computer aided cutter.
