What Should I Look For Art Deco Glass?

There are several things that come under the category of art deco glass. If you want to buy high quality art glass supplies, you must have a little knowledge about them.

Color

Ambers, Topaz, Blues, Green (earthy colors). Red or "Ruby" glass shows up frequently. Cobalt blue glass is the most sought after. I have seen many "glass smoke" as well – a really nice effect!

Shape and texture

As with art deco pottery, glass vases, including geometric, angular, uniform, mathematics, graduation, and concentric design. I always thought modern and simple, not over-designed. In other words, each art deco vase contains only one or two artistic themes that are repeated or mirrored throughout the piece, and these themes never conflict – just complement each other.

Artistic elements

Molded Glass: Craftsmen take sacked glass (in the liquid state or gel) and printed using special tools manufacture of glass, with glass blowing to create a shape, and then put the glass is formed in the water for cooling and setting.

Acid Etching: A process used by famous makers like Lalique, Tiffany, and Daum (among others). acid etching involves introducing a type of acid to the surface (metal, glass, etc.) that causes a "reaction".

Glass crackling: It is an effect created by heating and reheating the glass and then rolls them in small pieces of "fritted glass" and finally soak all parts in cold water. When completed, the vase seems to have thousands of small cracks, almost like a spider's web.
