“BermanGlass” is now “CastGlass”

If it’s been a while since you've toured our line of kiln cast glass, now is a great time to explore the latest developments: our new “CastGlass” name + realigned CastGlass product families.

Name Change: "CastGlass" Replaces "BermanGlass"

You may be familiar with the BermanGlass name. It’s served us well since Joel Berman Glass Studios joined the F+S family several years ago. Now, as that part of our story slips further into the past, we've made a change that will carry us into the future while making it abundantly clear: this is F+S cast glass.

Line Restructuring: New CastGlass Product Families

Along with the name change we've restructured the entire line. The logic is simple, doesn’t stray far from the BermanGlass structure, and accommodates all of our existing cast glass designs. Here's how it works:

We've defined three CastGlass families according to glass texture style:

  • Classic = freeform artisanal textures
  • Intervals = intricate small-scale textures
  • Profile = precise linear textures

Each family includes two sub-families that represent different styles of glass, each that offers different end results:

  • Monolithic = single lites of textured kiln cast glass that are inherently transparent

  • Levels = textured kiln cast glass laminated with color and graphic interlayers

We haven't discontinued any of our existing products; we've simply reassigned them to one of the new CastGlass families, as shown below:


freeform artisanal textures


intricate small-scale textures


precise linear textures
