Dear Friend,

Our museum library does not have resources to identify current flat glass products.

To learn more about options for glass that may be used to create Shoji screens, contact the Decorative Glazing Division of the Glass Association of North America (GANA). The division is "comprised of manufacturers of decorative glazing products, their suppliers, and installers/glazing contactors." For more information: http://www.decorativeglazing.com/; GANA: http://www.glasswebsite.com/

 

You may wish to explore the web for additional flat glass manufacturers associations, but the Decorative Glazing Division seems to meet your goals. Others include:

https://www.glass.org/

http://www.glassbuildamerica.com/official-partners.html

Major flat glass manufacturers include:

There are web listings of flat glass companies:

You may wish to consult a materials library for specific ideas for plastic or glass, for example: https://www.arlisna.org/publications/arlis-na-research-reports/publications-archive/162-resource-guide-materials-libraries

Please let me know if you would like me to explore other options or questions.
