All the finish, glass and shade options Hubbardton Forge currently offers. Not all options are available for a specific design.

Hubbardton Forge purchases glass domestically whenever possible, however much glass is sourced internationally.

Translucent Finishes

Hubbardton Forge translucent finishes show off the character and texture of the metal beneath...

The finishing process utilizes the methods that will bring out the beauty of the materials – from hand-rubbing, to running through our polishing process. Powder coating is more resistant to impact, moisture, chemicals, and UV light than liquid paints. The eco-benefits of powder coating include low to no VOCs, the capability to recapture and reuse overspray and the ability to return exhaust.

Opaque Finishes

Opaque finishes showcase the texture and character created during handcrafting. Aluminum finished in opaque delivers a smooth, modern look in your choice of colors.

The brilliance of Vintage Platinum is stunning.

Soft Gold finish offers a subtle warmth and elegance.

Hand-Blown Glass

AO Glass
A creative collaboration between two Vermont companies, Hubbardton Forge and AO Glass, brings an exquisite collection of lighting fixtures. Combining techniques of sculpting metal and blowing glass by hand, it demonstrates the design possibilities borne from a dedication to hand-crafted quality and artisanal pride. This hand-blown glass is offered in four subtle colors and clear. Other colors, limited only by your imagination, are available on a custom basis.

Please note: Small blemishes and bubbles are inherent in hand-blown glass and are not considered defects. Due to the nature of the glass-making process, the pattern and balance of color in the glass may vary significantly within a piece and from one piece to another. It is the individuality of each piece that is so sought after. Due to the limitations and variations of the photography and printing processes, representations here may not be exact.
