Water jet Cut Art

I Am a Man-Tribute to Standing Bear. This was water jet cut out of glass that a local artist created.


This was  Water jet Cut out of Glass that Carrie Strope Sohayda a Local artist made.

She then put this beautiful art piece together and was on display  in the Governors Mansion of Nebraska. With our water jet we are able to cut all kinds of material that conventional machining or cutting techniques would not allow.

“I work with glass integrating different techniques, including mosaic, kiln-formed (or fused) glass, glass painting and stained glass. I enjoy experimenting with and combining various techniques and processes, using them to add new facets to my work. I am influenced by intricate geometric designs and color exploration, incorporating a love for quilting, textiles and bright colors inherited from my mother, who was an avid quilter. I love the meditation of breaking glass into many pieces, building them together into a new form. I enjoy that kilnformed glass can be a challenge. There’s always a chance for surprises and accidents. When the kiln lid closes, the glass can shift as it changes from a solid to a liquid and back. The transformative and independent nature of kiln-formed glass and its lessons of detachment have helped me evolve not only as an artist but also as a person, and makes me want to share glass as a medium with as many people as possible.”

We can cut basically any material up to about 6″ thick. We can cut aluminum, stainless steel, hardened tool steels, mild steel, ceramics, glass, tile, wood, plastic, stone, rubber, foam, insulation, and just about anything else you can imagine.
