Adjustabail

The innovative way to hang your glass art. The patented Adjustabail range of products has been specifically created to enable glass and ceramic art to be wall mounted with ease. The three sizes—Mini, Midi, and Maxi—are designed to hang various sizes and weights of panel and shallow cast pieces. Adjustabail is less expensive than either a custom-made frame or metal fixings and much less obtrusive, too. A solution for the artist, the customer, and the gallery, Adjustabail is easy, adjustable, discreet, and affordable.

G-Manu Cutting System

An elegantly simple yet powerful cutting tool developed by Rudi Gritsch, based on his decades of experience working with glass. Traditionally, cutting glass involves using a tape measure and then factoring in the width of the glasscutter. Not with the G-Manu. Once you adjust its magnetic ruler to the location of the cutting wheel, all your cuts correspond exactly to what you see on the ruler. Plus, it works for both right- and left-handed users!
