Welcome!

The Gomolka Design Studio opened its doors in 1983, and though we specialize in cast/slumped glass, we have vast experience in many other methods and techniques. Our custom art glass has multiple applications, including: doors, skylights, partitions, divider walls, flooring, countertops, islands, and bar tops, backsplash, glass tiles, lighting, shower and bath enclosures, signage, cabinet glass inserts, stair treads, railings, table tops and other furniture, and it can be installed in residential as well as commercial settings.

Our most popular product is slumped glass, most commonly known as “cast glass” because it shares similarities with the glass casting process, is in actuality a thermoformed fused glass. Textures, patterns and custom designs are kiln-formed through heating and then "slumping" the glass panels onto or over a mold.

All of our ceramic molds for shaping glass are made in house, and our textures and patterns are Gomolka Design originals. We can provide architects, interior designers, homeowners and contractors something truly unique and perfect for their space and vision.

Variety is the Spice of Life!

GDS Colorfuse™ glass is a proprietary product created by Greg Gomolka in the year 2002. It is a combination of glass fusing, casting and painting. The colorants used are made of 100% glass, but it’s the secret ingredients that create the interesting bubbles, iridescent sparkles and other beautiful affects that even a great photo cannot show. It has been used for anything you can imagine such as partition walls, wall coverings (such as shower walls), flooring, countertops (including kitchen and commercial bars).

Sandblasted glass can provide a unique look to any type of glass, from custom artistic designs to commercial signage, while simultaneously being able to provide privacy and beauty to any setting. The techniques themselves can be performed in a number of ways to create art on the surface of glass.

Thick glass (meaning any custom glass over 1" in thickness) is most often used horizontally for countertops, bars, islands, tables, and so on, but sometimes in upright positions such as backsplashes, decorative walls or wall dividers, signage, and artworks. It is available in multiple textures, in either Aqua Clear, Crystal Clear color, or our Colorfuse™ glass.
