Fused Blue Glass Sculpture ‘Little Lake’ by Janine Altman
This fused blue glass sculpture is inspired by the enormous beauty that nature offers. A beautiful abstract that captures the colours, harmony and balance of a lake. Admire the delightful shades of green, turquoise and blue and allow the aquatic colours to soothe your soul. Colours and shapes combine and complement each other, to represent this fantastic underwater world. A mirror frame surrounds and contains the artwork, forming part of it and an iron base.
Janine Altman uses her own unique method, which she developed herself, to create this fused blue glass sculpture. The metal stand allows you to easily display the fused blue glass sculpture on a shelf, side table or mantlepiece.

Fused Blue Glass Sculpture Artist
Janine Altman hails from Uruguay. She creates stunning glass artworks using a range of techniques. These include Fused Glass, Flameworking and Pate de Verre. Altman also has her own unique way of working glass, which she calls “Openwork Glass”. This signature style is a sophisticated form that consists of joining hundreds of small bits of glass linked by metal lines. This allows Janine to make a new structure altogether.
More recently, Janine has been experimenting and investigating ways to recycle glass and be more sustainable and planet-friendly in her practice. She starts by using either broken objects or those in disuse and in her glass artworks. Many of her pieces have a geometric and abstract form, with a range of textures and tones. This results in entirely unique and irreproducible pieces. Her style is often as eclectic as it is avant-garde!
Janine has participated in a great variety of International Exhibitions and Fairs and her works are recognised by Contemporary Glass Society, UK and the National Liberty Museum of Philadelphia. Educational and social institutions, as well as private collections, hold Janine’s artworks.
Finally, Janine also teaches glass artistry and is Director of the Gallery ACCS Visual Arts in Montevideo, Uruguay. A very talented and industrious lady indeed!
“Contemplate nature as a source of inspiration. The universe arouses our curiosity and amazes us with its details, rhythms, colours, textures, shapes and volumes. The harmony and geometry of nature motivate me and my work. The study of Nature shows us that there is a natural order governed by laws, these laws and forces of nature, are also a source of inspiration for me.”
