George C Scott Studios

George C. Scott Studios specializes in Art Glass design and fabrication as it applies to architectural features, lighting, surfaces and sculpture. We have a thirty plus year history working in residential, restaurant, casino, hotel, and educational facilities. Fabrication techniques include glass blowing, casting, fusing, kiln forming, and associated metal work. Glass Blowing A glass-forming technique that involves inflating molten glass into a bubble (or parison), with the aid of a blowpipe. We specialize in both free-blowing and mold blown forms. Cast (Slump) Glass The process in which molten glass is cast into a mould where it solidifies. The technique has been used since the Egyptian period to create interesting and unique glass shapes and patterns. We use a variety of processes such as kiln casting, or casting into sand, graphite or metal moulds. Carved Cast Glass George C Scott Studios has developed a unique process perfect product for large scale feature lighting or back-lit paneling. Shown here are 38mm thick cast glass lamps with deeply carved layers of colored glass. Once they are back-lit the colored glass on the back side shines through exposing the beautiful custom designs and patterns.   Glass Fusing A process used to join glass pieces together by partly melting the material together. It is important to realize that not all glass can be fused together. If the two colors or materials have differing physical properties they may cool at different rates, breaking the bond. George C Scott Studios can help you develop a fused architectural products correctly using the appropriate to ensure a damage free installation. Sculpture At George C Scott Studios we welcome opportunities to create sculptural pieces of every size and dimension. We have supported the Pratt Fine Arts, Pilchuck Glass School and JDRF auctions with donations of our sculptural pieces over the years. We can help you turn your vision into reality using a wide variety of materials and fabrication techniques.  Our sculptures can be found in galleries and private collections around the country. We welcome commissions and custom work; please feel free to contact us to discuss your glass sculpture project.

Our TerraClad™ product line provides standard and custom solutions in panels, baguettes and louvers.

Architectural Terra Cotta As the United States’ most specialized architectural terra cotta manufacturer, Boston Valley Terra Cotta maintains a team of artisans, architects and engineers committed to craftsmanship, quality and service. Our approach to production is grounded in creating exceptional architectural terra cotta that withstands severe climates in both restoration and new construction. Guastavino Tile Ceilings Rafael Guastavino was a Spanish architect, engineer and builder who is most famous for the architectural terra cotta tile vault and arch system that he designed and constructed in the late 1800s. Patented in the United States in 1885, the Guastavino tile system uses layers of terra cotta tiles set in a herringbone pattern in Portland cement. This vault and arch system became very popular in many major U.S. cities because of terra cotta’s non-combustible properties, as well as because of the lesser expense and weight associated with this technology. Boston Valley Terra Cotta is proud to carry on the legacy of Raphael Guastavino and his vault system. This ancient technology still has a place in today’s arch and vault architecture. Additionally, we have provided Guastavino tiles for the restoration of two of Raphael Guastavino’s famous constructions – the Oyster Bar in Grand Central Terminal and the Queensboro Bridge, both in New York City. Tiles were also provided for restoration projects at the Louisiana State Capitol and West Point Academy’s entry gate moat. Roof Tile Portfolio Our Grade 1 terra cotta roof tile product line is crafted in a unique array of profiles and colors for restoration, replication or contemporary construction. Innovative Manufacturing Portfolio Boston Valley Terra Cotta is a leader in providing innovative solutions for both traditional masonry installed terra cotta projects as well as for our terra cotta rain screen system.
