CIM stands for Creation Is Messy. They are suppliers of glass which hs a CoE of 104 and is compatible with Effetre, Vetrofond, Lauscha and the other 104 glasses. The messy colour pallettes are being extended regularly with new shades. They also produce a range of CoE 96 glass called Messy 96. Messy colour 104 and Messy 96 are not compatible.

Occasionally CiM produce a pull of glass that does not conform exactly to their colour specifications or one that is created for a test run. These occasional odd lots of glass are labled as "Messy Uniques."
