If you’ve ever looked through the incredibly diverse selection of pieces that can be found in our portfolio, you’ll no doubt know all about the fantastically unique qualities of our work and how it can be used in all kinds of ways. We think fused glass art is a little underappreciated in that regard, especially if you’re talking about how it shapes up against traditional styles of coloured glass splashbacks.

Perhaps the most obvious advantage of fused glass over coloured glass splashbacks is the fact that you’re not limited to using just one colour. Now don’t get us wrong, in some kitchens a big block of solid colour can look great, but we find that the texture and unique qualities of fused glass art make even the most simple design into a visual spectacle packed with details. Even a huge splashback with just one colour will still have layers and depth, with bubbles scattered under the surface and a textile surface that you can reach out and touch.

What’s more, fused glass art can bring all kinds of interesting designs to life, and it’s the perfect canvas to realise bespoke artwork that’s personalised to match your home or custom made to replicate something you love dearly. Believe it or not, paintings are actually one of the most common things that we’re requested to translate. From landscapes featuring rolling hills and seaside towns all the way to popular Lowry classics, it really is up to you as to what you want. Fused glass art is the perfect canvas on which to paint in a wholly different way, and our resident artist Lisa has an extensive background in traditional art that makes her the perfect candidate to bring any existing painting to life. They always come out from the kiln looking spectacular, so we encourage you to go for it!

No matter what design you opt in for, however, you’re guaranteed to be getting something that’s truly one of a kind and not to be found anywhere else. There’s a world of difference between fused glass art and coloured glass splashbacks, after all, and it’s one that we can help you explore. Come and let us know all about your ideas!
