Posted on May 26, 2014 by Ed Lecciones | 0 comments

With glass dominating the design of the entire lighting piece, art glass style lighting utilizes glass in a way that is unusual and highly stylized.

The Beauty of Art Glass LightsArt Glass Style

Merging lighting functionality with the stunning beauty of sculpture, art glass lighting is a great way to add sophistication to your space. From chandeliers to pendants and lamps, lighting accents can bring a room to life. Unique lighting additions create a certain ambiance and environment suited for your specific needs. From a hotel’s ballroom regal crystal chandelier to a home’s cozy pendant in a dining room, everyone wants the perfect way to light up their surroundings. Art glass is one of the ways many you accomplish this, giving a new decorative twist to average light bulbs. Much of art glass that is sold today is purchased for lighting purposes. The exclusivity of art glass lighting designs is what draws buyers in. From the rich variety of colors, hand blown glass shapes, to the size, textures and style of each glass element, it is no wonder why art glass lighting continues to be a trend.

Art Glass Styles Manufacturing Techniques

There are many ways that art glass lights can be manufactured. They are made from glass that has been worked into a form that is deemed artistic, usually for decoration, but also for purpose. Some of its popular techniques include leaded lights, stained glass, glass placed into a kiln so it molds into shape, sandblasted glass, copperfoil work and glass blowing.

Choosing Art Glass Style Lighting

Functional, versatile and beautiful, artisan glass fixtures continue to be a popular design choice for many homeowners. Art glass lamps and lighting combine light with art that adds an extra special "pop" to anyone's collection

Like any piece of art, you need to make sure that the art glass light fixture that you pick suits your decorative style. Remember, it is an investment and therefore, you need to take time deciding on the size, shape, color and design that is right for you.
