Adding Style and Color With Hand Blown Art Glass

Glassblowing started around 50 B.C. with the Phoenicians and spread under the Roman Empire. It has evolved into what is today an art form requiring a lot of training, skill and intense concentration. Many individuals pursue glassblowing as a hobby and it happens to be one of the fastest growing hobbies in North America.
Modern art glass comes in as many shapes, designs and colors as you can imagine. Some of the patterns and designs created during this complicated process of heating, cooling, cutting, rolling and blowing are absolutely breathtaking. It is fascinating to watch an expert glassblower transform ordinary looking glass into a true work of art.
Art glass can be stunning as a collection, or as an individual piece. It takes the form of sculptures, vases, candle holders, perfume bottles, bowls, plates, paperweights, ashtrays and more. Art glass also makes a great and unusual gift.
