Art-Glass

The pro­duc­tion of glass has a deep his­to­ry. Glass has enjoyed con­tin­ued artis­tic advance­ments that can be traced back to the the ancient Phoenicia, Egypt, and Roman cul­tures. Later peri­ods of advance­ment occurred in German, French, Venetian, and British com­mu­ni­ties, which sub­se­quent­ly spread glob­al­ly to include the vibrant glass cul­tures of America, Canada and Japan.

Glass-mak­ing tech­niques con­tin­ued to become more sophis­ti­cat­ed and this helped to sup­port artis­tic growth, which then result­ed in yet fur­ther devel­op­ments of how glass could be fash­ioned and pro­duced. With a bet­ter under­stand­ing of glass pro­duc­tion tech­niques, artists could now more ful­ly con­trol col­or-hues, col­or-sat­u­ra­tion, col­or-shad­ing, lumi­nos­i­ty, glass-trans­paren­cy, and glass-tex­tur­ing. Developments also arose in terms of etch­ing, spe­cial­ized-cut­ting, and hand-blow­ing method­olo­gies. This body of knowl­edge and the accom­pa­nied skill-sets enabled glass-mae­stros to pro­duce art­works that expressed more ful­ly their orig­i­nal inten­tions and designs.

Ethereal Art car­ries many styles of art-glass, notably hand-blown pieces that high­light not only the dynam­ic flow of kiln-heat­ed glass, but also the mar­velous cre­ativ­i­ty of unique and orig­i­nal artists.
