Welcome a flutter of spring into your space! The Butterfly Standup is a delight of colour and texture, perfect to catch ambient light and sing joy into your home.
Measuring approximately 5×6″, this glass decor is a perfect size to bring a breath of colour to your space. Whether you add to your office, or brighten up your mantle, this piece of art is a joyous addition to any space.
With two design options to choose from, you can decide on which style suits your space. The single purple butterfly, or the double orange and blue butterflies. Display your choice of fused glass art in either a wooden block display or clear acrylic easel. Both of the display options allow light to travel through the glass, for a sparkling and glowing display!
How’s It Made?
Handcrafted from art glass, we create the Butterfly Standup using multiple steps. First, we cut and polish the glass to the appropriate size. Then, we prepare a ceramic casting mold using a spray to allow the glass to release from the mold. Next, we use coloured glass powders and frits to accent the details in the ceramic. Once the colours have been applied to accent the butterfly details, we carefully place the sheet glass overtop and place the casting mold into the kiln.
We kiln fire the glass to allow the frits and the sheet glass to fuse together. The colour is the glass itself, therefore you won’t ever have to worry about the colour fading or washing off. During the firing, the glass is annealed. Because of this, the strength and durability of the glass is increased, so you know it will last for as long as you own the glass art.
