MSU Pre-cut Art Glass Lets Fans be Crafty

Everything Else

At the height of an undefeated season for MSU (and a big win over University of Michigan) Delphi’s new Licensed Pre-cut Glass Emblems couldn’t come at a better time. 

For the past 38 years, the Lansing-based company has supplied glass artists with high quality art glass supplies and education. But they haven’t been able to offer pre-cut glass mascots and logos until now.

These exclusive pre-cuts are designed to make it easy for people, even those with no previous art glass experience, to create MSU-themed projects like garden stepping stones, serving platters, wall art and fashion accessories.

Delphi currently carries two designs, the MSU Spartan “S” logo and Spartan Helmet mascot emblem. Sizes range from 1/2 inch to 6 inches. Pre-cuts are available in either aventurine green, a dark green with metallic sparkle, or solid white. Both colors are lead-free and food safe. All glass is tested 96 COE compatible for fusing. Pre-cuts are made using a high-powered water saw allowing for precision detail, including interior cuts that would be impossible to do by hand.

“We are very excited about our new line of licensed collegiate pre-cuts. Everyone has a favorite sports team. Now they can create art glass projects using detailed school emblems and logos,” says Delphi Glass Executive Director Lisa Parks. “They’re also extremely versatile. We decided on using a 96 COE compatible art glass, so people can choose whether to use them for mosaics, fusing, jewelry crafts, or simply to hang in their window.”

Now the big issue for Delphi is acquiring the licenses for additional teams. Within a few hours of posting this news on Facebook, Delphi had requests for several other colleges’ mascots. The company is currently in negotiation with other schools as well as professional sports organizations.
