The first crucible thrown this year. It’s larger than the two we’ve been blowing with – this pot should hold over 10 pounds of molten glass goodness!
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!
We have a fantastic Etsy customer who has commissioned a blown art glass goblet for her 21st birthday. What a way to celebrate!!
The goblet on the left is available for sale here!
recycled bottle glass has become a viable choice of medium to craft into lighting shades at our hot shop – Wolf Art Glass. we crush and melt topo chico mineral water bottles to gather onto blowpipes and produce 100% recycled glass art and lighting. it is a fast and challenging glass to craft in, certainly never formulated for glassblowing by hand.
topo chico bottles are a wonderfully subtle sea green transparent glass, same as the familiar coca-cola bottle. we add nothing but heat to the crushed bottles so the color of the original glass is retained, plus thousands of tiny bubbles and whispy streaks are left from the bottles’ applied color labels.
The Wolf Art Glass Gothic Glass series is focused on creating glass art with deep rich colors accented with black for a heavy gothic feel. This is the first piece in the series using the deep Lapis Blue color numbered 4 and available on here on Etsy for purchase.
Lapis Blue Flower Art Glass Vase – Gothic Glass Series No. 4
Here is the rest of the series – all have sold on Etsy this past year:
Vlad’s RoseBud Goblet Chalice – Gothic Glass Series No. 3
Picture Vlad sitting and feasting in front of a roaring fire while the winds outside his castle walls blow and swirl with frigid snow!
This goblet got huge attention from Etsy buyers and sellers and ended up being sold as a housewarming gift paired with this sweet little pink rosebud goblet. How much fun would it be to toast your new house with these goblets!
Vlad’s RoseBud Fluted Vase – Gothic Glass Series No. 2
Hellebore Fluted Bud Vase – Gothic Glass Series No. 1
we’ve blown more broken bottle glass recently and decided to try out ornament balls with it. we tried out various found metal molds on the bubble, so each turned out unique in the optical effects of its walls.
the glass used was recycled from Topo Chico mineral water bottles. i’m thinking of calling these “bottle balls.”
hoping to have some serious fun with new ornament and witch ball designs this fall at wolf art glass
A Sunburst Yellow Dragon series blown glass wall art. The spiny rondel features 3 black canes spiraled through a burst of orange, red, marigold, and canary yellow frit to the black & white center. Blown on April 18, 2010. Will be listed on the Wolf Art Glass Etsy site.
