Production method called “Roclair”

What is “Roclair”

“Roclair” is a coined word that combines “rock” and “clear”, meaning “shining rocks of light”, and is a term that represents technology in general.  
“Roclair” is a unique technique in which a 2.5cm thick dull glass is boldly cut like a sculpture with a hammer and joined with an epoxy resin, which expresses light and shadow dynamically by the contrast of the brightness of the glass and the black of the epoxy resin.Since each piece of glass is handmade by cutting with a hammer, it has its own shape and expression, which creates light that combines warmth and sharpness.  
Furthermore, thanks to strenuous research on the adhesion between glass and epoxy resin, by molecularly bonding glass and resin, excellent bonding performance resistant to temperature changes, ultra-violet rays, and water, etc. has been achieved.  
Jiku Art Creation uses glass made in Japan or glass made in-house.
  • 1. Original design
    • Draw a design image of the work to be produced.
  • 2. Production of sketch
    • Draw a full-scale sketch based on the original design.
  • 3. Glass cut
    • In order to express a simple, sharp and powerful light, a glass with a thickness of about 2.5cm is cut like a sculpture with a hammer. At this time, one of the features of “Roclair”, a shell cut (shell shape) with beautiful reflection of light is generated.
  • 4. Positioning
    • Place the cut glasses based on the picture.
  • 5. Sand filling
    • Once the composition is determined, put sand in the gap and prepare for fixing.
  • 6. Resin bonding
    • Embed specially formulated resin and bond glasses.
  • 7. Polishing works
    • After the resin is cured, polish the entire surface. Each cut glass is carefully polished by hand. This finish restores the glass to its original strength and makes it even more brilliant.
  • 8. Construction
    • The work will be installed by the constructor.
  • 9. Complete
