Pretty and practical glass objects

Glass is a popular material in the design world because the end results can be quite intricate and aesthetically pleasing, even if a little delicate. This is certainly the case for the art of pottery, where glass and ceramics are often used as the primary materials for creating all sorts of pretty and practical objects including tableware, kitchenware, sculptures, figurines and other home treasures. 

Categories of glass

Remember, while we tend to think of glass in the form of windows and drinking vessels, there are actually many categories of glass for creative purposes such as art glass, glass crystal, depression glass, pressed glass, cut glass and uranium/vaseline glass. With experienced hands and the help of a glass kiln, glass can be turned into beautiful bowls, vases, ornaments, plates, bottles, wine glasses, tumblers, paperweights, candle holders, ashtrays and plenty more. 

Glass pottery process

Such glass pottery and other glass objects are generally by melting together a mixture of sand and metallic salts to create what is known as molten glass, which can then be shaped and slowly cooled in order to harden as a new glass object. When this process is completed, ceramic artists and potters are able to sell their precise pieces of pottery made from glass to collectors, homeowners and gift buyers.
