Clear Art Glass ‘Through the Wall’ by Rebecca Mansbridge
This fantastic clear art glass comes from Rebecca’s latest collection. Made of transparent glass, this gorgeous clear art glass is a delicate and atmospheric piece of art and will gather many admiring comments.
Each individual ‘brick’ is made of clear bullseye glass, cut to size to make a wall of transparent glass. This is then carefully fused so that each piece just ‘tacks’ to the other. Ensuring that the glass has texture. As light passes through the glass it catches on the edges of each individual piece of glass, transforming into silver stripes of light. The light throws interesting shadows in front.
A stylish piece of art that will stand unaided on any shelf, or mantelpiece and makes the perfect gift for a loved one or why not treat yourself?

Clear Art Glass Artist
Rebecca J Mansbridge is a talented and passionate British fused glass artist. Her creativity has taken many forms over the past 30 years, encompassing textile media, glass painting, photography and desktop publishing. In 2004, she joined a local workshop group which taught the skills for copper foil work and fusing glass. Rebecca has been exploring the beauty of this material ever since. She simply loves the colours of glass and the way light transforms it.
Rebecca’s delicate and often atmospheric fused glass waves and pictures capture the magical beauty and tranquillity of the natural world. In contrast, she has recently started exploring high-end glass. These pieces are more abstract and tactile. Many play with the way light shining through glass transforms. All her work is colourful and intricate and is created using several layers of glass, playing with visual depth.
Rebecca creates multi-dimensional pictures and free-standing fused glass artworks. Each piece begins through observation and study of her subject matter. She then works out the technical process required to achieve her end goal. The entire process takes many days and can involve up to four layers of glass and countless intricate details before the firing process begins.
The beauty of nature, tranquillity of trees and animals inspire Rebecca. Every single piece of art is handmade, and no two are the same.
