Lera Glass
Project Gallery


ight, strong, doesn't degrade, easy to repair ö these characteristics earned fiberglass the reputation as one of the most versatile materials. In fact, fiberglass can be formed or molded virtually into any shape. Lera Glass has a long and colorful history with fiberglass fabrication beginning with the company's first production of motorcycle racing parts.

Over the years, Lera Glass has used fiberglass to produce a wide range of products from precision architectural details such as those used on the Redwood City Courthouse renovation, to freeform sculptural details such as prop and scenery set pieces for rock concerts and live theater. With the use of fiberglass, the possibilities are endless.

Sartorius Robots

Lera Glass produced these robots for use as trade show props. Macintosh Monitors created the face. When a button is depressed on the head, stylized facial features appear on the screen, and the robot becomes interactive.

Martini Stool

This project came to us from a bright, up and coming designer. His vision was a piece of furniture worthy of having Charlize Theron sitting upon it. The original stool he brought us was a mock up in sheet plastic, tweeked with bondo until the shape was right. The shape however was not strong enough to sit on. We took a mold from his original, reshaped it until it was symmetrical, and fine tuned it. We then took a second ( production) mold from that, and made the stool shown here. The finish is white automotive paint with a purple pearl in the hand rubbed clear. Itās comfortable, and supports 325 lbs.

Redwood City Courthouse

On this recently completed project Lera Glass produced the columns, portico details, entry, pilasters, the balustrade / parapet roofline perimeter, pediment and the eagle sculptures. All components were made from fiberglass reinforced with a steel sub-frame which was required. All finishes used authentic materials such as sand, and copper synthetically bonded to the fiberglass.

Far lighter than sandstone, these components are much easier to install, safer seismically, and are also much easier to engineer given their steel frame work. They are also very cost effective.

Dubai Chandelier

This shape is to be used as a chandelier for an Atlantis themed restaurant in Dubai. The original shape came to us sculpted from polystyrene bead foam. We took an elaborate rubber mold, and made the shape you see here. The edges will be trimmed in bronze and it will be illuminated from the inside with high intensity lighting. It was made using fiberglass, UV stable, and clear polyester surfboard resin.

Washington Street

The entire entryway feature as well as all the window crowns on this building are made from fiberglass. Making an entryway and crown features like this from wood would require many cut pieces of wood assembled together. Wood joints would be a possible entry point for water as the building ages. So creating a regular maintenance routine of scraping, painting, and possible rot repair would be necessary.

Made in fiberglass, as shown, the features will never rot. When painted with the proper paint will need far less repainting than their wooden counterparts. These components were made in several large, light weight sections with flanges for easy installation. When primed with the proper oil based primer the fiberglass features can be painted with traditional household paints.

Can Am Car

The car shown is a Formula Atlantic car. We produced front and rear fenders along with side pods to allow this car to braced as a Can Am Car.


This Rhino was one of many African animals we produced for Banana Republic when they themed out their stores as safari oriented. We produced Rhinos, Topies, Zebras, and a rampaging Elephant among many others.
