Emma Wood is an artist and designer who specialises in making high-quality, desirable, fused-glass artworks. Her work is a constantly evolving range of original, distinctive designs, constantly pushing the bounaries of fused glass making and turning what some refer to as a craft into a distinctive art form.
Emma has worked for several independents as head designer and maker, also teaching others the craft of glass fusing.
She has now taken the opportunity to run her own glass art company.
Each individual piece is hand-made by Emma, using ranges of colour, texture and the light-specific qualities of glass to produce fused panels of striking beauty and detail.
Fused glass has several benefits when considering it as a piece of art. For example, Fused glass pieces are not effected by decay or fading caused by ultra-violet light, as would oil on canvas or prints, which makes the panels ideal for conservatories and alike.
Fused glass can be used in kitchens, as splash backs, swimming pool environments and are not effected by humidity or chlorinated atmospheres and cleaning fluids found in those particular areas.
Fused glass can also be easily cleaned when needed, with a variety of cleaning and anti-baterial chemicals, which would also make the art suitable for hospital environments.
Each fused glass piece of art is specially backed with safety film, in case impact breakage occurs. However, care should be taken when sighting fused glass art, so they are not subjected to impact.
One of the issues with fused glass art, is that it is very difficult to appreciate its beauty from an image on the site. We have included images which are close-ups and others which show a selection that have been mounted.
When ordering the piece, they are all individual, so please don't expect an exact replica of the image if yours is to be made size to order. Variations do occure but due to this fact, each are individual and unique.
We have tried to include the highest quality images on the site and you can go to the full screen icon to the far right of the gallery image block, for a full screen image, showing the fine detail.
You can also see some images of Emma holding fused glass panels. This we feel does give a better perspective. However, there is no better way, than to ''view in the flesh'', therefore we would be pleased if you want to book a viewing at our gallery.
