Lighting

Most of our enquires are about lighting. People looking for new and creative ways of illumination their space or room. Lighting that creates a dozen different moods from one dimmer switch.

Standing lights, hanging lights and wall mounted lights take on a whole new character with the addition of Glass Act. Ask any architect or space planner and they’ll tell you, the one thing that has the most impact on a space, is lighting.

Surrounding walls become virtal canvas, for a splashes of color that create more than just ambiance, they create talking pieces. Change the direction of the light and the space changes with you.

Technology gives us the control to decide on setting that suit our moods.
Change the emotional landscape of a space with light and color… Imagine that!

OUTside

More and more people are enquiring about OUTside art.

This piece was created for a neighbour, here in Parks. AZ
She wanted a garden feature piece that would remind her of Summer, when all around is covered in snow. Working together, She and Ross came up with the idea of ‘SPRUNG’ flowers. Shooting out from beneath the snow, these all year round glass flowers have become the envy of her neighbours. With the addition of ground lighting, the art becomes much more than ‘just garden art’. The adjoining house enjoys its very own ‘aurora borealis’ light shows, as the art takes on a Second, Third and Forth dimension.

From corporate commissions to private garden pieces, adding a touch of handmade nature to your garden of Eden. Wherever that may be.

Emulating nature when asked to, or matching corporate colors to produce striking and memorable ‘Business Art’, Ross is able to use glass in ways you never thought possible. Working with space planners, architects, landscape gardeners and direct with the client, Ross will produce unique ‘Glass Art’ that has real purpose and reason in the space it’s destined for.

If you have a project or space that would benefit from more visual ‘impact’, or you’re just curious about what can be achieved, get in touch with Ross. He like’s nothing better than open, creative conversation about color, light and of course, Glass.

INside

Wall pieces, platters, lighting, or sculptural… Glass has the ability to affect a space more than just by its size or color. Creative use of lighting can offer limitless possibilities when choosing your mood. The visual impact of a five piece wall platter is stunning simply because of its form and scale. Add a splash of lighting to the same piece or sections of it and you have a unique work of art that ‘works’ hard for you and your setting.

Example Brief:

Client: Gordon Fraser
Location: Edinburgh, UK
Project: 25 wedding anniversary present

Contact: Gordon called after seeing the website and asked if Ross could get involved in producing a piece of art for Gordons wife of 25 years. Susan.

Consult: Helen is a lover of both art and nature and so Gordon felt that a unique piece of art that could maybe mirror some of Susans favourite flower colors, whilst being vibrant enough to stand on its own, as art. The perfect brief! Ross set about describing the process and how the colors are achieved. Dates were set to meet and see some recent pieces work. Once Gordon was satisfied that the scale and impact would be right for the space,  a final design was settled on and final color pallet was agreed.

Create: With a deadline of less than 7 weeks, it was going to be tight to get the right results. After all, it’s not a science it’s an art! But with a clear brief and long distance communication taken care of by the internet, Ross was able to make light work of things. Once the first piece had been created, Ross took multiple photographic images for reference and presented them via email. The detail and conversations regarding mounting options,  happened via skype. With the colors approved and the details worked out Ross set about making the additional 4 pieces for the wall sculpture. Gordon had sent over scale photos of the space where the art was to be displayed and Ross worked out the rest. A visual of the pieces on the wall that they are intended for, goes a long way to reassuring the most nervous of clients, that they’d made the right decision.

Delivery: With all five pieces completed and ready with their mounting brackets in place, Ross packs and secures the precious pieces for transportation. In 9 years of producing theses spectacular pieces, he hasn’t lost or broken one yet. Shipping to the UK via our preferred supplied of FedEx. Fully insured and covered for any eventuality.

With the pieces mounted just in time for their anniversary, Gordon was kind enough to sent us back this image with the art in-situ.
