This incredible kitchen comes from a home in Laurencekirk, Aberdeen. The idea for the glass came about when the couple who owned the house felt that the room was missing a real focal point. They were keen to go all in for something truly special, aiming for a unique big feature piece that would give guests and visitors something to feast their eyes on. Fused glass art turned out to be just what they were looking for, so they gave us a call!
Lisa discussed ideas and concepts with the customers, hearing all about what they wanted to do in the kitchen. She created sketches to visualise her interpretation, and once the couple were happy with the composition, colours and content, she went ahead with the art. The initial images were sent over, the pieces were fired, and the end result is as you see pictured above.
It’s All About the Details with Fused Glass Art!
There’s a lot to be said about the design of this grand feature, especially when it comes down to the details that the customers were looking to have included.
Look closely, and you’ll spot a golden eagle soaring high overhead. Down below on the grass, a stag stands by the riverside and a pheasant can be seen on the other side of the bank. There’s also a highland cow, a herd of sheep and a hare. It’s not just animals either, as people can be seen walking their pets in the verdant green fields. Labrador, white terrier and dachshund alike can be spotted enjoying the gorgeous scenery.
There’s life everywhere in this particular set of seamless glass panels. Can you spot the leaping salmon in the river? Or can you identify the different kinds of wildflowers in the foreground? Finally, the wide panorama comes to an end at one of Scotland’s beautiful white sand beaches, with snow capped mountains in the distance. It’s a beautiful range of colours that all come together to create a window into another world.
Needless to say, we absolutely love how it all turned out. The glass was made specifically to fit, with pieces being cut out of the panels in order to accommodate the electrical wall sockets. Fortunately nothing went wrong with the cutting, and fitting the pieces was the only challenge left by the end.
