Glass Art Objects ‘A Cascade of Colour’ by Rebecca Mansbridge
Rebecca Mansbridge’s glass art objects are a joy to behold. Created from strips of glass in a rainbow of colours – you can almost feel the warmth radiating from this lovely piece of glass art. Tiny bubbles within the glass sparkle in the light. A joyful celebration of colour, this wave will make a statement in your home.
Long strips of clear and coloured glass are carefully cut in shape and fired in the kiln. These pieces of glass have then been fired together. The heat in the kiln slumps the pieces of glass so that they create beautiful curves and shapes. I can never fully predict how each piece will slump. The resulting glass looks like colour cascading.
This delightful piece will infuse your home with a year-round glow. It is free-standing and will happily sit on any shelf or mantelpiece. Place it on a mirror/reflective surface and increase the drama!
Perfect in the living or dining room, ensure you place it somewhere it can be viewed and enjoyed every day.
Glass Art Objects 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 that 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.
