The DecoBloc

A versatile product for Glass Block arts and crafts is DecoBloc. Since its introduction seventy years ago, Pittsburgh Corning’s genuine glass blocks have been used in innovative ways by artists and crafters to fashion beautiful and decorative creative expressions.

Proudly manufactured in Pennsylvania, U.S.A.. The product’s authenticity is rooted in the classic tradition of American craftsmanship. Its use in Deco-style architectural designs combined with its eye-pleasing dimensions and light-transmitting and light-diffusion characteristics makes it a wonderful foundation for a host of artistic uses.

No Drilling

When crafters look into using Glass Block for a DIY project, they are confronted with the need to drill into the glass to insert lights or decorations. Pittsburgh Corning’s DecoBloc eliminates this requirement.

In addition, DecoBloc contains a special multi-use insert that goes into that molded opening that has three custom cap options. These custom caps allow you to easily transform your glass block treasures into a bank, canister, or decorative light, without drilling or cutting into the block.

DecoBloc comes in two sizes; 8″x8″x3″ and 6″x6″x3″, and two patterns; wavy and ice, creating options limited only by your imagination.
