I’m no expert when it comes to glass art. I am, however, someone who really enjoys looking at how expertly crafted many of these beautiful pieces are. As an artist, I can truly look at something and not only find it beautiful but also look deeper into it o truly appreciate the work put into it.
The great thing about this type of art is how many different styles you can find in it. Just like other forms of art, no two artists blow glass the same way, and many even make used of mixed media. For example, one artist may incorporate it with fabric arts and another may choose to hand paint their pieces. The sky really is the limit when it comes to how one can approach this expressive and exciting art form.
Some artists choose to be more precise while others do not. You may see some artists make use of things like molds to create exact pieces. Others may just use free form blowing techniques that take on a life of their own, thanks to the artist’s techniques.
I really appreciate this type of art. I wish it was one that I could admire much more. maybe one day it will become more popular so that it wouldn’t be as hard to find as it is now.
