curved glass

Curved glass

Also known as bent glass, curved glass is glass that has been reheated and shaped, usually over a metal mold, to a desired bend or curvature, and left to cool in that position. Curved glass can be found in vehicles (many windshields and some backlights are curved on the edges) as well as in architectural designs, from glass domes and hand rails to revolving doors and display cases.
