From stained glass to blown glass to glass sculpture, the diversity within the realm of glass art is amazing. Many artists even combine approaches to create original, distinctive glass art.

TYPES OF GLASS ART

Glass art, which originated in the eastern Mediterranean during the Early to Middle Bronze Age of history according to research, is an extremely versatile art medium. A wide range of glass art types and techniques has developed over time. A well-known glass art style is stained glass, which is a traditional style of glass art that involves cutting colored glass pieces and assembling them using copper foil or a thin, flexible strip of lead in a process called caming. Blown glass is another approach to glass art, a technique where molten glass is inflated and shaped using a blowpipe or blowtube to allow artists to create three-dimensional forms such as vases, bowls, and sculptures. Other glass art techniques include glass cutting, engraving, and etching and polishing into pieces that can be both decorative and functional.
