In this paper we will consider in more detail the production processes of architectural lining products. These items may undergo thermal processes of total or partial fusion, in both cases with the aim of moulding the material, or they may undergo cold processes where there is an agglomerating material, so that cullet can be compacted and moulded in order to be used. In this study, the methodology used is an interventionist methodology, of a near-experiment nature, where the variables are identified and the causes are partially manipulated, since in hot processes of glass melting there is no intervention after the fusion furnace has been closed. The type of coating given to the pieces can be decisive of their final look; they can be polished on both sides, or only on one, they can be polished using physical procedures with sandblasting or using chemical procedures with acid. Also regarding finish procedures for pieces, these can be cut (or lapidated) to transform its original aspect.
