Members' retail | Order desk
Whatever your membership level, you are entitled to discounted pricing on supplies purchased through our Order desk.
During this time, we are minimizing our overhead but want to continue to supply you with the glass you need.
Most of the sheet glass we order is in 2-foot x 2-foot squares. If you only want one square foot of glass we have set up a reservation system that will allow you to know how many square feet have been requested on the wait list. When a full sheet has been reserved, we will complete the order. This means that you can split the order with other members.
When you are ready to order, email email@example.com to expedite the updating of the inventory data. Please indicate the glass ID number and the number of square feet you want to reserve.
What is Oceanside compatible glass?
Oceanside's compatible glass is 96 COE textured and smooth glass that can be used for both fusing and stained glass applications.
If you are used to cutting and fusing the smooth glass (solid colour, cathedral or opal), that glass is highlighted in "grey" for easy identification. Due to its popularity and manufacturing processes, this glass will be more likely to be in stock than the coloured textured glass. Iridescent, OpalArt, and Spirit glass are in the inventory, but that doesn't mean they are readily available or in general production. In the Oceanside compatible glass inventory and the OGT glass catalogues there are coloured swatches to show you the tonal value of each glass. These swatches are fairly accurate, but if you choose a glass that has a lot of action in it, you may want to talk to Melanie about its density and whether or not its pattern direction or movement is relevant to the piece you are working on.
Note: If you are a stained and fused glass artist, consider storing compatible glass and stained glass separately (or clearly label them) so you don’t end up with issues of incompatibility in the kiln.
How to order
You will need to know the colour names/product ID, SKUs and quantity of glass material. If you need help with colour selection, we can help you. When you are ready to order, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please indicate the glass ID number and the number of square feet you want to reserve.
To help you with your selection, you can download or print the Order form.
You may want to consider what glass is available to you before you plan or commit to your project. Oceanside (OGT) offers traditional stained glass and compatible glass that works for both stained and fused projects. Accessories refer to the frit, rods, stringers and noodles that you may incorporate into your fused glass projects.

Retired Oceanside compatible glass
OGT reserves the right to retire glass from their product line and that includes the former Uroboros hand rolled sheet glass. However, in May 2020, OGT announced a collaboration with Youghiogheny Glass to produce Uro by Yough, a revival of the Uroboros line. Stay tuned!

Wissmach glass has been part of the industry for a long time. It produces stained glass and 96 COE glass. It has a smaller colour range than OGT, but its Prisma 96 COE glass has the striations and colourings of traditional stained glass. Note: The glass is brittle and can be challenging to cut.
