Fewer things are mixed up more often than fused glass splashbacks and their more plain counterparts, coloured splashbacks. Honestly, it’s not too difficult of a mistake to make if you’re unfamiliar with the key differences. This blog aims to outline just a few of those differences and what sets the two apart!

It’s all in the details, or so they say, and indeed one of the biggest differences to look out for is to do with exactly that. While coloured splashbacks tend to feature a single colour applied plainly across the whole piece, fused glass art panels are able to feature a tremendous amount more detail. We’d argue that for us, a piece of glass is like a blank canvas onto which just about any design can be placed.

What’s more, fused glass art works not only in two dimensions, but three! The glass itself is layered by nature, and that aspect can be enhanced by adding extra layers to really bring out the texture like nothing else can. The possibilities are endless. Take a look through our portfolio of completed work and you’re sure to see just how varied our work can be, with any number of different styles and designs on show.

Another key identifier of fused glass art is the images that can be incorporated into the design. While coloured glass splashbacks tend to be a single plain colour applied flatly across the piece, fused glass art is able to capture stunning images such as landscapes, sweeping scenes, pet portraits and more.
