Large dichroic glass panels from Jockimo are made in a vacuum deposition chamber, a highly sophisticated and technical multimillion-dollar machine. The expense of that equipment means not every glass manufacturer is going to be able to provide this type of glass.

Because this type of machine is available to Jockimo, the base for the dichroic glass can be either clear or textured. This gives clients even more flexibility and customization with their final glass products.
