Trees Under Glass []


[Caba Company] started experimenting with sandwiching the product between laminated glass about seven years ago. After experimenting with several manufacturing partners, the lamination is now handled by a firm in Southern California, from which the final product is distributed.

Barkskin Glass comes mirror-backed or as a translucent slab. The material is intended for indoor use only, and UV protection is recommended in areas with direct sunlight (to protect the colorfastness of the bark insert). Though moderately water resistant, it’s not recommended for moist areas like tub or shower surrounds. Barkskin Glass is available in sizes ranging from 4-in. by 4-in. squares to 48-in. by 96-in. panels. The largest slabs can weigh more than 200 pounds and should be installed by an experienced glazier or someone with large-glass installation experience. Barkskin is priced about $100 per sq. ft. and has a lead time of six to eight weeks. Each slab is warrantied for five years against manufacturer’s defects.

Another one of S. Lee Wright’s  favorite finds from the ICFF this year was a wall coverings company called Barkskin.  It is a natural, hand-made wood material.  The process of making the paper is from pre-Columbian times, whereby the bark is processed with “cold and then boiling water, hand pounded and sun dried,” as is stated in their promotional material. It can be used commercially as well as in residential applications as a wall covering, ceiling covering, furniture surface and lampshades, to name a few!
