Fused glass hanging panels for display on their own or back-lit if transparent glass is used for effect.

Natural Beauty

A botanical theme! This is a striking fused art glass panel – these pictures don’t do it justice.

The leaves are a separately made combination of persimmons and dark amber cathedral glass providing their lovely striped effect. They remind Greg of variegated Cana Lilly leaves! Thicker than the green stems, they provide a rich and dimensional texture to this colourful and whimsical piece.

The stems and flower-like enhancements are fused from various green shades of green and multiple textures of frit, further enhancing its 3-dimensional nature.

Natural Beauty measures 24″ x 23″ and is designed to hang in a well-lit window or back-lit space. This particular work also looks lovely front-illuminated or in a natural indoor setting.

Please note that Greg does not commit any work to a hanging method until it is sold. Greg will consult with the purchaser to determine the most suitable method, given the work’s desired location. Installation charges may apply depending on the method chosen. Please Contact Greg to discuss in more detail.

Hot N Spicy

Be sure to check out “The Making Of …” this work.

The name says it all for this stunning 3 feet by 2 feet fused art panel!

These photos don’t pay justice to the striking colour depth of the red, orange and marigold opalescent glass used in this work. Black and select large coloured frit enhances the fissures for a textured effect.

Note on mounting/hanging: The artist recommends this panel  be mounted on a wall to create a “floating” effect, using one of various hardware methods.  Greg does not commit fused panels to a mounting method at time of completion; in consultation with the purchaser he will utilize a chosen method that best suits his/her design and viewing preferences.

Firey Nebula

A wonderment of colour, texture and design! You may recognize the marigold, hot red and orange glasses from Hot & Spicy, used with significantly different method and resulting mood.

Some accents are fully fused into the base, while most are dimensionally fused providing a wonderful texture effect adding life and apparent movement.

Firey Nebula is 24″ wide x 23″ high.

Note on mounting/hanging: This panel can be mounted or hanged inside a window or backlit frame using various hardwares.  Greg does not commit fused panels to a mounting method at time of completion; in consultation with the purchaser he will utilize a chosen method that best suits his/her design and viewing preferences.

Rolling Wine Country

(2009)

More Fall wine-inspired flavours, textures and drama!

This is a special work of Greg’s that is uniquely made as a centre piece for your home or lobby.

Based on your positive comments on Wine Country, this follow-up piece takes its colours and design and applies them and more to this unique large wave-shaped work.

Like Wine Country, Rolling Wine Country utilizes deep burgundy transparent glass containing streaks of darker pigment set aside clear glass with fine whispy streaks.

This fine art glass piece took no less than three separate kiln firings to achieve its multiple layered and dimensional effects.

The drama of this surface is enhanced by the addition of burgundy accent pieces and dimensional band-like impressions made during fusing on its back surface. For this latter effect, Greg used two techniques to provide added texture to both the front and back surfaces.

This work can rest on a surface in front of a window or back-lit area. At additional charge, it may be mounted using special discreet hardware (no drilling) to a vertical surface. Or as a special order, this wave-shaped work can be custom integrated as a lighting application. Contact Greg directly for a consultation on your design needs.

Rolling Wine Country measures 19″w x 18″h x 4 1/4″ d.

More Red Fissure!

(2009)

Back by popular demand!

Based on your rave reviews of Red Fissure Bowl, Greg has produced two more art glass pieces based on this stunning black-on-clear theme with distinctive cherry red fissure-like streaks running throughout.

Look carefully at the fissures – they have a particular character all their own!

These contemporary pieces that will add an attractive focal point to your decor. Their light source will cascade lovely red reflections onto your table surface.

The disk measures 14″ in diameter and is designed for display directly in a back-lit window or cabinet (stand included).

The art glass platter measures 15 3/8″ x 7 3/4″. Its surface is food-friendly but hand wash only.

Morning Smile

(2009)

You may recognize the Aventurine Green and cathedral green glasses from Resisting Conformity, used here with a different flare and with a chrystalline finishing effect providing a whimsical translucence.

Morning Smile is 13″ wide x 34″ high.
