Glass Art

GLASS ART

The Art of Glass is amazing and is an item that is made, generally as an artwork for decoration but often also for utility like a pipe, cup, pen and more.  Made from glass, and sometimes combined with other materials to make some amazing pieces of glass art.

Techniques include stained glass windows, leaded lights, glass that has been placed into a kiln so that it will mold into a shape is called slumping, glassblowing, sandblasted glass, and copper-foil glass-work. In general the term glass art is restricted to relatively modern pieces made by people who see themselves as artists who have chosen to work in the medium of glass and both design and make their own pieces as fine glass art, rather than traditional glass worker craftsmen, who often produce pieces designed by others, though their pieces certainly may form part of art. Studio glass art is another term often used for modern glass art made for artistic purposes. Glass art has grown in popularity in recent years with many artists becoming famous for their work; and, as a result, more colleges are offering courses in glass work.  The glass pipe industry has no doubt advanced the glass art field immensely.

Glass Art Marbles-

Ancient Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans all played with marbles made of stone or polished nuts. Shakespeare mentioned marbles in his play Twelfth Night. The earliest settlers brought them to America from Europe, and even a few founding fathers shot a skilled game! A kids’ game, glass marbles has also become an officially recognized sport with its own world championship competition governed by the Official Set of State and Interstate Rules. Stone or clay formed the earliest marbles, but the alabaster “alley taws” made better shooters than the cheaper, clay “commoneys.” In the mid-19th century, a German glassblower invented a pair of special scissors to cut the molten glass, making glass marbles affordable for the first time. Glass marbles quickly dominated the market, particularly after industrial machines made them more efficiently, lowering the price of the glass marble. Valued as much for their beauty as the games played with them, glass marbles inspired one 19th-century enthusiast to describe the “twisted spiral of colored filament” in glass marbles as “thin music translated into colored glass.” Parents frowned when kids “lost their marbles” in games of chance, and today both children and adults consider marbles collectibles as well as time-honored toys.

Our selection of glass marbles is meticulously curated from some of the finest glass artists around.
