Why does glass garden art looks fabulous in any garden? Because glass is a material of the highest quality, which confers its brilliance on gardens: it shines, glistens, reflects, and sparkles.
Glass also has decorative properties though it is delicate, it is one of those things that provides so much color and requires so little care (other than taking caution to not break the glass of course.) But if the glass is safe it is a beautiful material for making garden ornaments.
As well as decorating your garden with stained glass and hand-blown glass, you can also create upcycled art by using recycled vintage, antique and modern glass to create beautiful glass art to place in your garden,
Recycling glass objects can be quite affordable. It's plentiful at thrift stores and garage, estate and tag sales. From cheap cut-glass goblets to colorful glass bowls and vivid 1960s ashtrays, you'll find glass everywhere once you start looking.
There is so many ways to use old glass goblets, bowls, plates, figurines, bottles, etc and incorporating them into creative garden decor. When you begin rethinking glass in this fashion, a broken cut-glass candy jar is no longer a loss because its beautiful lid can now become the centerpiece of your rock garden.
Whether you have a large or small garden, glass art in your garden can provide focal points or accents throughout your garden, and in the sun, it literally glows, shining with its own essence and color.
The traditional use of glass in gardens is for protection.
