Nature Through Glass

This art gallery focuses on glass art that depicts nature and its common visual textures.

The artwork on this glass vase is of birds flying in the same direction over a body of water with what looks to be mountains in the horizon. The texture of the flight and tail feathers on these birds are very detailed and well depicted and really pop out to the eye.
This glass piece resembles a bird that seems to look like a pigeon of some sort. The textured lines on its belly running vertically as well as the textured design on the shoulder of the wings really stand out in an exaggerated, almost three-dimensional form.
This glass work is a pretty interesting interpretation of an octopus. With the transparent aqua-green tinted curved glass, the piece seems to portray a fragile, yet flexible depiction. The texture on the suction cups running along each tentacle is a very important part of this pieces visual realism.
This glass paperweight holds blue and red flowers (with hints of pink, white, and yellow) surrounded by vegetative leaves, which are also made of glass, inside of the piece. The textural shading of the flower pedals is outstanding, as well as the detail in the veins put into the outside leaves. The lace work done as a background provides depth to the piece, making it pop out.
This glass paperweight holds a glass bouquet of roses (Pink, red, and blue) with what looks to be red and orange berries. There also seems to be what looks like a butterfly at the top of the main pink rose. The lighting texture on the rose pedals and berries gives the piece depth and a sense of life.
This glass tetrahedron holds a hand blown glass branch of blackberries and flowers. The textural detail of the blackberries alone is outstanding. The leaves and branches connecting the berries resemble the plant very well. The detail in the center of the flower is very well done and is a very refreshing touch to the piece.
This is a collection of chunks of raw glass that I felt really resembled naturally found quartz and crystal deposits. These chunks are from the 5th century and have been weathered by the elements in Israel. This is probably why these chunks of glass seem to appear to naturally created.
This was a really cool piece that I found of a horse's head and upper torso. The horse itself looks like it's crossing water. The detail in the texture of the head and torso, both the structure and features, are very life like and well portrayed. The texture and detail of the hair and the water flow very well.
This little glass piece of a pig isn't the most anatomically correct depiction, but I thought the texture was unique and strangely "pig-like". It almost looks like the artist even put subtle fat rolls on the back, sides, belly, and thighs of the pig either in the glass or with the use of color shading.
This glass and lead sculpture is a very beautiful representation of a porpoise riding a wave-like structure. The texture of this piece seems to resemble ice or stone. The design itself is very elegant and flowing in the way it was sculpted.
