Fused Glass Sculptures

Fused Glass Sculptures

Fused glass sculptures are unique pieces of art.  They make excellent gifts for that hard to buy friend or loved one.  What better way to celebrate a new business than with a distinctive piece of fused glass art.  If you’re looking for gifts of appreciation and recognition, I would be happy to discuss your project needs.  Please contact me, Michelle, at mcaron@caronartglass.com

Free Standing Art

My fused glass sculptures are free standing and meant to transmit and reflect the ambient light of the space in which they are placed.  As you move through the space, your vantage creates a new version of the sculpture. Some of the pieces have several slumped elements that I fix together.  Others have a single element that I leave flat or slump into a particular shape.  Table tops, room dividers, open shelving all provide places where a fused glass sculpture draws the eye.

Hand Raked Fused Glass

One of the techniques that I use in many of my sculptural pieces is glass raking.  To achieve eddies and swirls of color, I heat the glass to near molten and then rake across the surface.  This techniques makes each piece very distinctive and offers the possibility of many color combinations and variations.  Copper, granite, marble slate, stone, wood are some of the materials I use for the frames or stands.  I find these materials create interesting contrasts with the glass sculpture.

Sculpture for Day or Night

I set some of my fused glass sculptures in a wood base that includes a 4 watt bulb.  These pieces are my night sculptures.  In addition to being appreciated during the day, the light provides evening illumination.  I often include a moon in the design as many of them are for children’s rooms.  They provide just enough soft light for a good night’s sleep.
