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.

Wine Country

This 20″ ball surface vessel is spherical in shape and meant for window or back-lit display.

The deep grenadine transparent glass contains mysterious streaks of darker pigment; the clear band running through the work’s mid-section contains fused black speckles.

The drama of this surface is enhanced by the addition of band-like impressions made during fusing on its back surface.

Did anyone say Greg is a “drama queen”?

Enjoy a rich glass of your favourite red with this unique enhancement to your decor!

For your convenience, Gotham Glassworks offers several models of display stands at additional cost.

Be sure to check out “Reno History – Gotham Glassworks”.

Almost half the fun of viewing Greg’s fused and stained glass works is where they are conceived and where they are displayed for sale.

Gotham Glassworks exists in what was the second story hayloft of a 30 x 18 foot heritage horse barn in downtown Schomberg, Ontario. The bottom floor is used for traditional storage of garden tools and supplies; all the “action” takes place up the stairwell, through the red screen door to your left. Continue reading Gotham Studio
