Glass Art

Glass as a medium of art has always been a mystery to me, mostly because of the high impact work style it takes to fashion it. For sometime I have been interested in a few artist including Dale Chihuly for modern times and the timeless Leopold + Rudolf Blaschka, the father and son team made amazingly realistic glass models of exotic flowers and sea creatures (the picture above is an Actinophrys Sol glass model).

The more I see what is possible with glass the more I am gearing up to roll up my sleeves and get into this. Stay tuned!



  1. They made those sea creatures with glass? Whoa! The only glass art I’m capable of is drawing squiggly lines on it with sketch.

  3. Ravages, you should see my spectacles. The glass on it is a work of art, created through purposeful negligence and abuse.

  4. You guys are doing much better than my glass art which involves deconstruction a.k.a breaking.
