We’ve been in the business for a while now, and there’s always been something of a debate about the fused glass that we make: is it art or design? We understand why so many people wonder if fused glass art is actually more of a design choice. After all, it does play a crucial role in interior design, and it can be used in doors, windows and dividing walls to look absolutely fantastic. It’s a little bit different compared to a framed painting!
There’s a lot more to be said for the other argument, though – certainly from our perspective! We believe that fused glass art is an art form that stands alone in just about every way, and we’re more than willing to prove it with the work that we do. Our resident glass artist Lisa is pretty substantial proof that fused glass art is exactly what it says on the tin, as she has an extensive background in painting and many other forms of traditional art. For Lisa, glass is just another type of canvas on which art can be brought to life, and the fusing process is an extra bonus that only enhances the uniquely artistic qualities of the medium.
If you’re still not completely convinced, then why not take a look through our extensive portfolio of work? Our website features most of the incredible fused glass art we’ve created in the past, so you’re sure to find a tremendously varied range of projects in all shapes and sizes. There’s a myriad of colours and techniques that come together to create something unique and incredible, and the end result is something you definitely won’t have seen before. You may even feel inspired to get a certain style put into your own home!
Whether you agree with us that fused glass art really is an art form, or you still think that it falls a little more under the design umbrella, make sure you don’t wait to pick up the phone and give us a call if you think that it’d look perfect in your home. We here at The House of Ugly Fish would love nothing more than to create something special for you today, utilising bespoke design and a gorgeous hand crafted touch to bring your ideal glass piece to life.
