STYLES AND TECHNIQUES


Styles

I would like to shortly present some determining trends and their features. Of course, ORGAN-X adapts to their clients’ taste and not only make their works in these styles.


Classical style decorated glass from ORGAN-X ART GLASS

The decorated glass featuring the name of Louis Comfort Tiffany was firstly produced in the 19th century. Art designs of times before this are inspired from the motives of graphic art, architecture and decorative art of former times.

Secession style decorative glass from ORGAN-X ART GLASS

Instead of direct lines and right angles, natural movement is expressed. It represent the forms of nature, the organisms of life realistically or sometimes in an abstract way. The curly, aerial lines suggest weightless elegance and boundless freedom.

Art Deco – Modern style decorative glass from ORGAN-X ART GLASS

Typified by direct lines, geometric designs, vivid and intense colors, quality materials and functionality, the shapes of Art Deco are dynamized by the enhancement of horizontal and vertical lines. Art Deco reveals luxury and elegance.

Decorative glass creating procedures

Decorative glass can be manufactured in different ways.

Decorative glass designers of the 21th century could rely on rich traditions and shapes of former ages. By today, thanks to modern technology, more and more options are avaiable to create art pieces of great value and style that satisfies both the buyer’s and our own concepts. There are also different manufacturing procedures of which none is better than the other, they are just different ways of expression in glass art.
Of course, depending on the matter of the subject, any combination of the mentioned techniques is also possible.

Tiffany stained glass

This technique involves cutting colored glass using copper foil to create frames around each piece of glass, and then welding tin between the pieces. The finished piece of art can be patinated to achieve the desired effect.

Lead came glassworks

This is the traditional method of cutting colored glass and joining the pieces together to form picturesque designs. This technique has hundreds of years of tradition and can be seen in many old cathedrals, churches and monasteries.

Sand blasted and acid etched glass

Homokfúvással és savazással több rétegben akár plasztikus mintákat is készíthetünk síküvegre.

Painted glass

A traditional method when special glass pieces are painted with various motives and put through heat treatment before use.

Facet-cut and engraved glass

Fazetta csiszolással és gravírozással is előállíthatjuk az elképzelt motívumot sík és transzparens üvegből.

Fused glass

A method when several layers of glass are incorporated due to heat treatment.

„Decor glass”

Unfortunately, more and more manufacturers distribute products so called “decor glass” which are the combination of plastic resin pieces and lead bands attached to flat glass. Outliners, glass stickers, etc. are great products for hobby crafters but not suitable for creating art pieces of timeless value. Sometimes colored glass is replaced with different kinds of plastic foil, or cold paint is used. It is very important not to confuse these industrial mass products with real art glass!
