Posting here for traffic as I've hunted high and low for this.

Last year at the Ideal a Home exhibition at Olympia I saw a stand that sold wavy glass wall art but I can't find what I'm after now.

This is the kind of thing I'm after but I don't want to pay a fortune- can anyone help me please

There is a gallery in St Ives that sells it. Not £££££ at all we bought 2 bits and they shipped it to us.
I'll search out a name.

Yay- thank you so much.

Google fused glass artist with your area then ring them for a studio visit. Buying straight from artist might cut out gallery mark up and be a bit more affordable.

There is a marvellous shop in Trentham Village that does exactly what you are looking for
Think they will also do commissioned pieces but they have an excellent range in store
Have bought several pieces from them and mirrors as well
Not cheap but really lovely

I'm happy to pay a few hundred pounds just not a few thousand which everything I've found is.

Any names or websites would be greatly appreciated.

It's called Glazed Art

Have you looked at jo downs?

Yes buy straight from the artist. They lose a huge cut to galleries.

I got a lovely piece commissioned from an artist called Kim merriman....she is based in Washington state so shipping costs on top of you live in uk but she does lovely pieces.

I can recommend goodhand glass.

I was also going to say Jo Downs. Don't really know her but she went to the same school as me and I saw a link to her stuff on Facebook yesterday. Looks amazing!

Jo Downs' work is amazing. So many different pieces to choose from. She has a galllery near us. I covet so much of her work

GherkinsOnToast Fri 17-Jun-16 19:59:48

Jo Downs is who we bought from in St Ives.

Try Kookaburru Glass
I have some glass coasters which are gorgeous.

I was also going to say Jo Downs. Love her stuff.

Jo Downs or Carrie Anne Funnell

Bearbehind Fri 17-Jun-16 20:36:24

Thanks guys- have looked at Jo Downs but her stuff doesn't seem big enough.

Each of the panels in the photo I posted is about 1ft by 3ft so they're pretty big and I want something that is in 3 panels but go together IYSWIM.

Ooh this is lovely - I'd seen it before but had no idea wha my it was called.

TipBoov Fri 17-Jun-16 21:14:36

What it*

thesandwich Fri 17-Jun-16 21:17:43

Contact jo downs- we visited her studio/ factory and they do commissions..

LunaLoveg00d Fri 17-Jun-16 21:19:39

Yes another vote for Jo Downs, got one of her glass wishsticks in her little gallery/shop in Fowey last summer and it's lovely. Some of her larger pieces are absolutely stunning.

Loving the Carrie Ann funnel work- just needs to see some prices! grin

I saw some art like this at this ideal home show in Manchester recently, worth changing their website?
