Long seen in the form of vases, figurines and sculptures, glass has been a part of residential and commercial décor on tabletops and shelves for a while now. We've found an amazing Austin showroom that might have you considering glass as art for your walls! More after the jump…
Aaron Gross opened Austin Art Glass in 2003 after spending years studying the art of glassblowing from masters in California. Now quite at home on South Congress Street, Austin Art Glass continues to wow visitors with the artistic possibilities of glass. Featuring sculptures, figurines and vessels, Austin Art Glass carries art pieces that vary wildly in shape, color and even texture. Our favorite element: their innovative use of glass dishes and platters as three-dimensional wall art installations. Priced reasonably, each glass object can either function as a dish for food and candy or as an incredible art composition for the home. Funky and colorful art glass is sort of like a fresh version of china on walls, and is a great way to add texture to a space.
Looking for a more DIY or affordable solution for glass art for your walls? Austin Art Glass offers classes to anyone over 15 years of age. Priced at $100 a class, students can expect to take home 2 to 4 pieces of completed work from each one-hour lesson.
More information about Aaron Gross, the showroom or classes can be found at their website, austinartglass.com. Austin Art Glass is located at 1608 South Congress Ave in Austin.
