Glass art includes the creation of stained glass and the making of glass shapes through glass blowing. It dates back to prehistoric times, was extensively developed in Egypt and Assyria, brought to the fore by the Romans, and had its greatest triumphs in European cathedral building in stained glass rose-windows.

The modern art glass movement in which individual artists working alone or with a few assistants to create works from molten glass in relatively small furnaces of a few hundred pounds of glass began in the early 1960s and showed continued growth through the end of the century. The glass objects created are not primarily utilitarian but are intended to make a sculptural or decorative statement.

Sculptures

View our Collection

Sculpture is any three-dimensional form created as an artistic expression. Sculpture is primarily concerned with space: occupying it, relating to it, and influencing the perception of it.

Throughout history the purpose of creating sculpture has been to produce works of art that are as permanent as is possible, so to that end works were usually produced in durable and frequently expensive materials, primarily bronze and stone such as marble, limestone, porphyry, and granite. More rarely precious materials such as gold, silver, jade, and ivory were used for chryselephantine works.

More common and less expensive materials were used for sculpture for wider consumption, including woods such as oak, box and lime; terracotta and other ceramics and cast metals such as pewter and spelter.

Sculptures, as a form of art, have one aspect that may prove to be the better choice to embellish a space. Sculptures, being more solid and tangible, can occupy a space and complement a room better then a wall piece can. sometime, a Sculpture can dominate a room or even become the final touch that ties up a living space
