about ARTISAN GLASS
Artisan Glass NI specialises in unique hand - made glass by Denise Loughrey.
Each piece is designed and made in the Causeway Coast in NI. Many of the designs are influenced by the local landscape and coast themes.
Using only artist's glass gives the pieces fabulous clarity and scope of colours. The glass is hand cut and fired in a kiln at very high temperatures. This firing process fuses and melts the different colours and layers together.
The uniqueness of the designs comes from the techniques used to create the pieces. Pieces are created using cut sheet glass, powdered glass layers and screen printing.
The fused glass designs can be made into a variety of beautiful pieces including framed pictures, wall hangings, dishes, jewellery, coasters, light catchers and candle holders as well as creating one off commissioned pieces
As the products are constructed from coloured glass so the colours will not fade and they can be used for interiors or exteriors. They are completely food safe and can be washed in warm soapy water.
