It’s the first post on our blog in the new year, so of course we’re happy that it’s a good one. We love pieces that interact with light to bring a whole new element to the glass, and this latest project on our blog definitely ticks that box. It’s a set of glass windows from Hook, Hampshire, showcasing the very best of our fused glass art online with a gorgeously translucent wave design.
Immediately, perhaps the most interesting thing to note about this glass, compared to our usual wall pieces and kitchen splashbacks, is how it sits exposed to the elements. As a set of six panels making up six windows, each one has to contend with the ups and downs of the British climate, but that does highlight numerous strengths of our fused glass art.
Fused glass is created by bringing two panels of glass together, with the majority of the design safely encased in the middle. Not only does this create a very strong construction that makes the glass sturdy and durable, it also means that the art is completely waterproof and resistant to even the worst weather. It’s why you’ll see so many pieces of glass catching steam behind the cooker or being used in even damper places such as in bathrooms.
Another huge benefit of a glass installation such as this one is the immediate visibility of the glass panels. As they’re front and centre at the front of the home, it’s the first thing that visitors see. Whether that be friends or family who have come knocking, they’re sure to take notice. When you look at the glass from the inside, too, it’s a sight to behold!
Next time you find yourself on the lookout for something truly special, or whenever you’re next looking for a way to really do something unique in your home, The House of Ugly Fish is the place to go for all things to do with fused glass art online and offline. It doesn’t matter if you’re aiming to make a big impression on visiting guests or whether you’re just looking to have a smile on your face every time you go through the doorway, our glass is perfect for creating windows that suit your home to a tee. Don’t hesitate to pick up the phone or send us an email. We look forward to hearing from you!
