GreatGlazing: Backlit thick glass countertops

The basics: The Humes Residence in Southern California features a modern style kitchen with ThinkGlass countertops. “The owners came to us with a specific idea in mind to match their modern tastes. They wanted thick low-iron glass, with a texture, and textured edges, and they wanted it all back lit,” describes Tim Casey, Jockimo owner.

The players: Glass supplier, Jockimo; glass installer, Innovative Glass Works, Vista, Calif.

The glass and systems: The counters feature 2-inch thick cast glass. All edges feature a brushed texture to hide any seam lines from the fusing process, and the bottom side of the glass features the company’s Dune texture. Additionally, the panels capture air bubbles inside of the glass to create a three dimensional aspect to the panels.
