Glass Art Objects ‘Fire’ by Rebecca Mansbridge
Rebecca Mansbrisdge’s glass art objects are a joy to behold. Created from strips of red, orange and yellow glass – you can almost feel the warmth radiating from this lovely piece of glass art.
This piece is made from the rolled edges of glass sheets, giving each strip of colour a molten look and texture that would be impossible to replicate exactly. Since Rebecca can only use the edges of a sheet of glass, only a very limited edition of ‘Fire’ will be ever be made and no two of will ever the same.
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 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.
