Our blown glass ornament balls are amazing off-holiday season home decor! We’re currently enjoying them in our sunny kitchen with a mixture of amber browns and Sapphire blues.
Last weekend Carrie and I checked out Austin’s first Armadillo Art Glass Initiative held at the Palmer Event Center. We were both inspired by watching the glassblowers demonstrating their skills on the torch. Carrie excitedly took her first experience on the torch last night! Showing her a few moves put me in the glass groove, which I used to take my first attempt at a flamework M.U.S.C.L.E. inpsired figurine. He stands 2 inches tall and is made of 100% finicky bottle glass.
This is a video I am submitting to the ApartmentTherapy.com 2012 Design Showcase. It features my blown recycled bottle glass Bell & Hat Pendant lamp design. Here’s more of my blown glass lighting.
We were recently contacted by a potential client who loved the unique color combination of one of our ornament suncatchers and wanted to see if we could make a wall art collection based on it. The ornament is a new color combination that Carrie and I came up with: a mix of pale blues that partially reduce in the flame of the glory hole to form a base of silvery grey, and with our trademark black & white “blossom” bottom.
When designing new pieces with clients, we often use the Wolf Art Glass ornament page for color inspiration. We have blown suncatcher balls in over 100 colors and combinations, and we continue to expand the variety with every blow.
Below is the first wall platter we crafted in the silvery blue color.
After gaining approval from the client, we completed the install with two more blue and one purple amethyst glass platter. She was quite happy with her custom wall art collection!
