We would like to wish all our customers, clients, students, friends & colleagues a Warm & Merry Christmas. A big ‘Thank You’ for your custom & support this year & wishing you all the best for 2017.
At the end of last week the studio made a ‘Presentation Panel’ for the Directors of the Charity Fight Bladder Cancer.
The artwork (Wee Are Family) was designed by one of their members and I used a combination of sheet glass, frits and line enamels. It just shows that even an illustrative artwork can be used as inspiration.
We have just finished an Art Glass wall panel for clients using our ‘Liquid Light’ fusing technique.
The commission started from a series of fabric and wall paper samples that the clients had brought in to show us. Their colour theme was red, gold and beige. We used ruby reds, ambers and clear glass to match their colour palette as close as possible. The ‘Liquid Light’ technique creates a wonderful overlay of colour and several tones are formed when these colours mix.
The panel will be mounted on to a canvas backing using polished brass/gold fittings and will hopefully look fantastic as an Art Glass feature in their private residence.
We have been creating a unique Art Glass panel as part of a commission, using our ‘Liquid Light’ technique.
Like a painting colour is added and built up in layers. Overlaying coloured glass creates new colours and forms. Then finally the glass is fire-polished in the kiln to create our Art Glass of colour, movement and light.
