3 Things You Need To Know Before Buying A Glass Sculpture For Your Home
Do you have a glass sculpture in your home? If so, it’s time to consider some things before making another purchase. For instance, if the piece is for display only and not meant to be touched, then you should position it on an elevated surface where any spills can easily be cleaned up. The other thing that people often forget is that glass sculptures need light in order to properly show their beauty and color. Lastly, there are certain pieces of art that should never be displayed near windows because they may shatter from direct sunlight exposure. In this blog post, we’ll cover these three important tips for buying a new glass sculpture!
1) When decorating your home, it is important to consider the architecture and interior.
If you have a traditionally designed room, for example, choose modern glass art as an elegant focal point. However, if you are in a contemporary space with simpler designs then classic pieces of glass art will breathe life into otherwise dull spaces while also complementing them perfectly because they come from two different styles that work together synergistically.
Not only does this bring new energy and vibrancy but can create a contrast between old and new which creates unique aesthetics.
It is also crucial to measure the size of your wall or table before you buy any decorative glass art piece and other glass fusing supplies.
For example, hanging multiple smaller frames on a gallery wall behind your couch can work well if they’re all around similar sizes.
However, there aren’t too many rules in this area because sometimes it just depends on what looks good together aesthetically with regards to colors and shapes as well as the space available for each frame/item that would be hung up.
2) A general rule of thumb while picking any glass art piece is to consider its functionality.
Whether you want it for your living room, dining table, or something else entirely, functional pieces are the way forward. Art glass pieces can be easily transformed into an aesthetically pleasing decoration that adds character to every space they occupy and should always be treated with utmost care and consideration because of their fragility.
Heavy glass art pieces such as paintings and sculptures are not the best choice for coffee tables or tall dressers. They could easily fall over, breaking into a million shattered pieces that would be near impossible to repair. Even without direct impact from an earthquake, there is still a high chance of them falling with just simple vibrations like when someone walks in front of it. This risk can even happen on flat surfaces if they were placed somewhere unstable where something could knock them down later on; places like trolley tables should never be used because these objects will sway back and forth every time you put your feet up which puts weight on one side causing instability (unless you remove all other items). It’s better to use built-in shelves that have been attached.
3) When choosing glass art, consider the price.
Don’t just go for the most expensive piece you see simply because it’s what you think is original or worth buying. Ask gallery owners to suggest pieces that fit your budget and start small with smaller works of glass before moving onto larger ones which are more pricey – this way if they break in transit (it does happen) at least there won’t be too much loss involved whereas taking a gamble on an extremely large item could end up being costly when something happens to the artwork en-route!
