Author Peter Harris has said that if art that is kept by various corporations and companies was to be collected in one museum, “it would be the finest in the world.” Harris has co-authored a book with Shirley Reiff Howarth, which outlines and celebrates the absolutely amazing pieces of art that different businesses have been collecting over the years.

Japanese companies are some of the biggest collectors in the world even have their own galleries where the public can go and view the pieces they have! It really is a win-win situation for everyone involved. The companies are seen to have great taste and it’s a novel way to promote themselves, whereas the artists are reaching a new audience. Up there with the Japanese are the Germans. The Spanish and the Americans; Britain is sadly, flagging a little.

Having beautiful pieces of art in the foyer or on the walls of your office is a fantastic idea; they brighten up the places and give staff and visitors something interesting to look at. They also say a lot about the company’s ideals and personality. Here at The House of Ugly Fish, we regularly commission fused glass art pieces for corporate clients, including offices, restaurants, hotel receptions, health centres and even hospitals.

We provide a flexible choice of fitting options, no limit to size and a completely bespoke service and so stunning fused glass art installations can be commissioned to create the ‘wow factor’ to any part of a building. What’s more, we are an approved supplier to the NHS and supply other private health organisations, and as hygiene is a major issue, fused glass has major advantage over other art.
