“Glazing” is the transparent element in an achitectural project, usually glass or acrylic. Glass that is manufactured for picture framing is engineered to different standards than other types of glass and there are several options to choose from. The three most popular are clear, reflection control and museum glass. Clear glass has sharp clarity but will have a substantial glare when exposed to light. It is the least expensive glass. Reflection control glass has no glare but is less clear, giving it a more diffused and less sharp look. It’s somewhat more expensive than clear glass. Museum glass is an incredibly clear, reflection control glass that makes the details in the art “pop out” and is really fun to look through! All glazing used at Things Worth Keeping is conservation glass, meaning it has a coating that filters out UV rays. This protects the art from fading or deterioration from light.
