What is glass art?

There are large range of glass creations that fall into the category of glass art. Glass art can be categorised in two ways, the way it was made or the finished product.

How is glass art made?

By Heat

  • Furnace – Manipulation of molten glass mainly by glassblowing where glass is inflated into a variety of shapes and sizes. Glass is workable once it is heated to 1320 degrees in special furnaces. The glass transforms to a bright orange in colour, is moulded into the required design and cooled in a controlled environment.
  • Kiln – This process warms existing glass products such as glass sheets or pieces of glass to a temperature where glass can be fused together and moulded into plates, dished or other less intricate pieces.

By Cutting

Many preformed glass products can be processed by cutting, blasting or sawing into different shapes and sizes. These products can be glued together or mounted in frames or other materials to hold the glass.

By Treatment

Sandblasting, engraving and etching are techniques used to transform plain glass into decorative pieces. Drawing and designs are used to another element to clear glass.
