Fused Glass Art
Bespoke fused glass art from The House of Ugly Fish. All of our glass art panels are handmade and bespoke. That means everything from the start of the process…
This gorgeously purple kitchen splashback was made for a home in Rhosneigr, just five minutes down the road from our workshop. The customer wanted to recreate the view out from the beach towards the sea, including all the landmarks and details on the horizon that go with it. We love how the lights from the cooker hood shine down on the piece, and how the glass injects colour perfectly into the kitchen.
This beautifully bespoke fused glass splashback found a home in Llanllwni, Carmarthenshire. It’s a unique twist on our classic Tree of Life style that was a long time in the making, having been created for the kitchen years before it was ready. It’s proudly displayed there now, and we can confidently say it was worth waiting for! A background of vivid green houses a tree created from finely crafted linework, with a wide and varied selection of hand cut leaves.
The glass is divided into three panels, with one seamless design continuing seamlessly across. The scene depicted is a beautiful and verdant meadow, complete with an assortment of wildflowers lying in both the foreground and background of the piece. Overhead, a variety of cool blue tones create the image of a cloudy sky, and the multi-layered effect of fused glass art helps to give it a real sense of depth.
This stunning bespoke fused glass splashback found a home in Lymm, Warrington. It’s a classic design of ours called a Tree of Life, and this one is a perfect example of a tree that’s truly come to life with the help of a wide range of personalisations and bespoke features. The customer’s pets can be seen below in front of the grass, and there’s more natural life in the form of butterflies and bees. We love how it turned out!
This stunningly scenic bespoke fused glass splashback is one of our favourite ever scenic pieces. With so much space to work with, we could create a wide panoramic view that makes the back wall of the kitchen look just like a window into another scene. The customers had moved to Weymouth, Dorset, but wanted something that would bring their fond memories of North Yorkshire with them.
This bespoke glass splashback found a home in Sproston, Cheshire, where it became a striking centrepiece for the kitchen. The design is a particularly beautiful Tree of Life, with a very soft colour palette comprised of a wide range of blues, greens and some slightly warmer complementary colours. The customer wanted a cheery colour palette, so the citrus colours were picked out against a denim background.
The background of the piece is a pale green colour, creating a solid base for a variation on our classic Dalaman design. A curving line runs from left to right, bending almost as if under the weight of the horizontal pieces aligned along it. There is a broad range of colour to be seen, from warmer colours such as red and orange all the way to more neutral shades that complement the modern styling of the kitchen.
The design of this bespoke glass splashback from a home on Hayling Island is an incredibly colourful wave, marrying Carnivale inspired colours to a beautiful and classic fused glass design. Cascading waves on the foreground mix with shifting layers of vibrant wave shaped gradients in the background, and the end result is this highly personalised centrepiece. It really injects a strong and vivid burst of life into the kitchen!
The design of this fused glass splashback in East Grinstead is a twisting variation on our classic Dalaman, with a curved central spine snaking from left to right and adding a striking bit of contrast. Lisa matched all the colours to a specific colour of paint that the customer provided, which was Light Peachblossom No. 3 by the Little Greene Paint Company. We love how it turned out after firing, with a very quiet and subtle pink shade that you don’t see in too many kitchens.
This beautiful bespoke fused glass splashback was delivered to a house in Malpas, Chester. The design is a fresh take on a classic, which is our widely loved Dalaman design, but the colours and details are completely original and unique to this piece. The background is a desaturated hue to match the neutral modern décor of the kitchen cabinets that surround the space.
These fused glass accessories were recently created and delivered to a home in Douglas, on the Isle of Man. There are two bowls in total, each with a distinct design that complements the other well. The customer sent in colour samples for Lisa to work from, giving her a great idea of what the specific tone of the room looked like and how best to match it. The individual designs of the bowls are completely original works.
This bespoke piece of fused glass artwork is a panel that went to a home in Halifax, West Yorkshire. It’s a splashback which depicts a beautifully soft beach scene, with washed out, dreamy colours that give the glass a very serene mood. The customers wanted the piece to give that feeling of discovering a beach and stepping out to see the sea for the first time, bringing a little joy from the outdoors inside.
This is a beautiful fused glass splashback that went to a home in Crondall, Hampshire. The customer, as you might be able to tell from the design, kept bees. She had three that made it into the splashback, complete with the colours of the real beehives, and this formed the main element of the design. A whole host of wildflowers completed the effect of a busy field, with a lush arrangement of glass pieces, enamel powders and more creating the illusion of depth in the piece.
This fused glass splashback is a work of artisan glass art that now proudly sits behind the cooker in this home in Esher, Surrey. The design is a particularly eye-catching and unique one, depicting a stylised arrangement of black and gold wildflowers against an off-white background. It’s a beautifully neutral piece which complements a very warm and cozy space to a tee. We love how it turned out!
This bespoke glass wall art is from a home in Hertford, Hertfordshire. Three sculpted wave panels go together to create a stunning glass wall art installation. They display a classic wave design that complements the shape of the glass itself, rising and falling away from the wall with a mixture of vibrant blue shades and warmer off-white hues. Some extra colour has been sprinkled in for good measure!
This stunning set of three fused glass art panels found a home in Laurencekirk, Aberdeenshire. It depicts a certain view with a lot of meaning! The customer’s family lived on a house on Balnakeil Beach and also worked on the land around it. She had a lot of fond memories of her grandparents associated with the location, but also a huge amount of sentiment for the house itself. It found a way into the design, needless to say!
This piece of fused glass wall art was purchased from our stock, and it proudly hung as a centrepiece in our showroom until the day came that it was time for it to find a new home in Edinburgh. The design is a truly one-of-a-kind take on our classic Tree of Life, taking the form of a three-panel triptych. A wide palette of blue colours brings both the sky and sea to life.
These three purple sculptured waves were created and delivered to a beautiful home in Edinburgh. They’re made in an abstract, sculpted style that tapers to a point, with each one taking on a unique shape of its own. Stripes run horizontally across each piece, varying in thickness and colour, and the powdered background features both deep purples and royal blue. It’s a stunning combination, especially for this wonderfully decorated room.
This stunning bespoke fused glass splashback found a home in Condorrat, North Lanarkshire, making the big journey from our Anglesey studio all the way up to Scotland. It's a take on our classic and widely loved Tree of Life design, with an original idea for the surrounding panels that we absolutely love. A smaller secondary splashback sits behind the sink off to the left of the image, connected by glass surrounds that depict a trail of leaves taken by the wind.
This lovely bespoke fused glass splashback found a home in Birkenhead, Merseyside. The home in question is a beautifully restored period property with the luxury of having an enormous space for a kitchen diner. The clients wanted a bluebell wood, with the colours of the flowers modified to match the kitchen accessories. Deep blues became purples and pinks and the end result was simply stunning! To us, it looks as if you’re gazing through a forest towards the brightly lit sky in the distance.
The design of this glass wall art triptych from Bitteswell, Lutterworth was provided by the customer, who supplied an image that they wanted to have translated into the medium of fused glass art. It depicts a New York skyline, with every detail recreated with powder. Although it may look like it, there’s nothing digital about this and nothing has been printed on – it’s all been made by hand!
This wonderful glass panel is one of our bespoke glass kitchen splashbacks, and it was created for and delivered to a lovely home in Sturton by Stow, Lincoln. The design of the piece is a stunning flower burst, created on a beautifully blue background of enamel powder. Each petal of the flower burst was carefully cut down to size from a variety of colours and textures that both contrast and complement the sky blue base.
Today’s piece comes from a home in Wellingborough, Northamptonshire, and it’s a lovely little piece that goes to show how you don’t always need to go for a big grand panel in order to make a very large impression. This beautiful glass wall art brings an artisan touch to an already very interesting room, tying it all together nicely. We especially love the way that the wall was painted!
