Nathan Allan director Barry Allan points out that Glacier’s texture and the unique way it holds the light reflect its composition:
“We used nothing artificial – it is made up of entirely natural elements.” Marveling, Allan says, “When something like this is the result, how can we not love what we do?”
Like many of Nathan Allan’s “playroom projects,” Glacier was inspired by an architect with a dream. “He wanted walls of glass that looked like sheets blowing in the wind, so we started experimenting to see what was possible,” explains lead designer Greg Carter.
The challenge inspired Carter to develop a kiln method that uses a “sacrificial” sheet of glass to capture the texture of the mold before being broken away to leave icy smoothness beneath.
