For as long as we’ve been in the business, there’s always been somewhat of a debate concerning what we do. Specifically, is fused glass art really art – or is it design?
We can understand why many people would think fused glass art is really more of a design choice. After all, it plays a crucial role in interior design, and it certainly can be used in windows, doors, and even dividing walls if you’re looking to really think outside of the box. Honestly, it works better than you might at first think!
There’s a lot more to say for the other argument, though. We here at The House of Ugly Fish really do believe that fused glass is art that stands alone in every way, and we’re more than willing to prove it with a tremendous range of gorgeous pieces and products ready to make a big impact. Our resident glass artist Lisa is all the proof we need that fused glass art is exactly what it says on the tin. For Lisa, who has an extensive background in painting and many other forms of traditional art, glass is just another kind of canvas and the fact that it’s fused together in a kiln only enhances the artistic qualities.
If you still aren’t convinced, simply take a look through our extensive portfolio of work, featuring some of the very best pieces of fused glass art we’ve ever created. You’re sure to find a tremendously varied range of projects in all shapes and sizes, with all sorts of colours and techniques coming together to create something you definitely won’t have seen before. You might just feel inspired to get your own.
Whether you agree that fused glass art is indeed art, or you’re more of the opinion that it’s a design choice, make sure you get in touch if you’d like to see it in your home! We would absolutely love to create something amazing for your home, utilising bespoke design to bring your ideal piece of glass to life. Our contact details can be found right here on our website. Hopefully, we’ll soon be sending something very special to your doorstep very soon.
