National treasure Dame Vivienne Westwood once said that, “There’s nowhere else like London. Nothing at all, anywhere.” With its bustling streets, wealth of culture and almost tangible buzz, it’s no surprise that our capital city has inspired and enchanted so many notable figures and members of the public.
One of those members of the public was a recent client of ours who commissioned a beautiful piece of bespoke fused glass art for their apartment near the River Thames. Depicting the iconic and brooding London skyline on a much finer day than we’ve been having recently, the final piece of fused glass wall art is a three piece panorama that blends seamlessly into their stylish living room.
Clearly a lover of London town, our client’s living space already incorporates a set of quintessentially cockney accessories. Cushions are adorned with crowns and coloured red, white and blue, while a small metalwork of Big Ben sits atop the dining table. This is where we drew most of our inspiration for their final piece of bespoke fused glass art.
Rather than a full piece of brightly coloured fused glass art we decided to keep bright shades mostly absent, instead carefully crafting the piece in a cool blue hue to match the rest of the apartment. Where we did add colour we added it sparingly, instead creating more impact with bold splashes of London bus red in key areas to perfectly compliment the client’s furnishings. Darker greys and choice areas picked out in white lend a further luminosity to this intricately detailed piece, really bringing this stunning skyline – and living room! – to life.
We’re so pleased with how this piece of bespoke fused glass art turned out, and can safely say that our client was too! It really brings their primarily neutral room to life and creates an interesting focal point that’s sure to delight every time somebody walks through the door. Here at the House of Ugly Fish we don’t just specialise in London scenes or wall hangings though, we can also create fused glass art kitchen splashbacks and other home accessories in a style that truly encapsulates your personality.
