ART GLASS DOORKNOBS

 

With over 200 Art Glass doorknob designs to pick from, you will find just the right look to complement your home's decor. Collaborating with some of the worlds most acclaimed Studio Glass artists, we are able to create these solid glass doorknobs that are truly museum quality and will become tomorrows heirlooms for generations to enjoy. Custom designs are welcomed to be commissioned.

 

You will need one of the Baldwin® Estate or Images Collection locks to fit the doorknobs. All our knobs can be used inside or outside. You need two doorknobs per door and can use matching or different designs on the same door. You can also do one side with a Baldwin® metal knob to save some cost (EX. Inside a closet).

 

The locks come in passage (like on a closet door) and privacy (like on a bathroom door). The locking button is in the face of the rose. Our doorknobs also fit Baldwin's mortise front door locks. Our standard finishes for the shank portion are polished chrome, polished stainless, satin nickel and satin stainless. All other Baldwin® Hardware finishes are available.

75 NEW Doorknob Designs!

Out of the Blue Design Studio has broadened its beautiful lines of Art Glass decorative hardware by introducing a new line of lit front door handles utilizing cutting edge color changing LED technology.

CONSTRUCTION OF DOORKNOBS

 

All of our doorknobs are made from solid glass created with either the "Lampworking" (also called Flameworking) method using Borosilicate glass or the "Furnace Glass" method using "Batch" glass. Hundreds of different techniques, processes and artist's secrets are utilized in the creation of all the unique Art Glass designs we offer.

 

Once the piece is created it is "Flame Polished" by torch or in the "Glory Hole" and is then put in an annealer to "Soak" until it slowly reaches room temperature. This annealing process relieves the stresses in the glass and hardens the piece against breakage. We then take each individual glass design and "Cold Work" them with diamond tooling to get them ready to assemble to the appropriate finished shank.

 

All of our shanks are CNC machined to exacting tolerances from the highest quality 316 marine grade stainless steel to make a perfect fit to the glass orb. All finishes are put over the 316 stainless steel shank to insure that there never is any corrosion of the base metal in our products. From our research we find that we are the only ones in the industry that goes to these lengths for quality assurance. Once the shank and the glass are chemically cleaned for assembly we use a two part epoxy specially formulated for us for metal to glass adhesion to bond the pieces together.

 

It takes 24 hours for this epoxy to cure which results in a super strong connection that we guarantee for life. Every glass design is artistically orientated on the shank for the best viewing when installed. We go to great lengths to make sure that each piece of decorative hardware we create will be as special to you as it is to us making it.

ART GLASS DOOR PULLS

 

Out of the Blue Design Studio has broadened its beautiful lines of Art Glass hardware by introducing a new line of lit front entry handles.  Utilizing cutting edge color changing LED technology, the handles can change a rainbow of colors by a simple tap on a hand held RF remote controller.

 

The glass handles are between 1 ¾” – 2” in diameter and some designs can be made as long as 24”. Many designs ranging from spiral rainbows to depth carved clear glass handles have been developed and custom designs can be commissioned.

 

The glass handles are between 1 ¾” – 2” in diameter and some designs can be made as long as 24”. A remote transformer that supplies 5V to the handle powers the Led lit handles. They require very little amperage to light, therefore the wires are small gauge that have to run thru the door from an electrified hinge. The electrified hinge is a specially made hinge that supplies voltage thru it in concealed wires, therefore making the installation invisible.

CONSTRUCTION OF DOOR PULLS

 

All of our door pulls are made from solid glass created with the "Furnace Glass" method using "Batch" glass. Hundreds of different techniques, processes and artist's secrets are utilized in the creation of all the unique Art Glass designs we offer. Once the piece is created it is "Flame Polished" in the "Glory Hole" and is then put in an annealer to "Soak" until it slowly reaches room temperature. This annealing process relieves the stresses in the glass and hardens the piece against breakage.

 

We then take each individual glass design and "Cold Work" them with diamond tooling to get them ready to assemble to the appropriate finished metal ends. All of the metal hardware is CNC machined to exacting tolerances from the highest quality 316 marine grade stainless steel and brass to make a perfect fit to the glass rod.  Once the ends and the glass are chemically cleaned for assembly we use a two part epoxy specially formulated for us for metal to glass adhesion to bond the pieces together. It takes 24 hours for this epoxy to cure which results in a super strong connection that we guarantee for life.

 

Every glass design is artistically orientated in the top and bottom ends for the best viewing when installed. If the glass design lends itself to being illuminated with LED lights, we machine the appropriate spaces in the metal ends to accept our proprietary circuit boards with the LED's imbedded in them. The wiring harnesses are also supplied. We go to great lengths to make sure that each piece of decorative hardware we create will be as special to you as it is to us making it.
