Decorative Clear Glass ‘Edge of the Glacier’ by Rebecca Mansbridge
This decorative clear glass has been made with strips of clear bullseye glass. Some strips are straight, others curved. The piece has then been tack fused, resulting in some of the curved pieces slumping slightly to create a unique shape and texture.
The light bounces off the textured glass, giving the piece an almost silver iridescence in places.
This magnificent decorative clear glass ‘Edge of the Glacier’ will make a great centrepiece and would enhance any mantelpiece, or table in your home.

Decorative Clear 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. Rebecca’s decorative glass art is delicate and enchanting and we are pleased to showcase her work.
