Handmade Glass Fish Art

The online home of fused glass artist Isaiah W. Heyer.

Most of our glass fish can be made for garden art and for wall mount installations. We fabricate by hand the garden art hardware for each glass fish. The wall mount hardware is made from aluminum which we purchase from our friends in Oregon at Hang Your Glass.

The Wall Mount Hardware

As mentioned above, the wall mount hardware is made of aluminum. The aluminum finish options are black and polished. These patented pieces of hardware look and work great with our glass fish. They have a seamless connection point from the glass to the wall, or installation point. More about the glass fish wall mount hardware can be found at the source Hang Your Glass.

The Garden Stake

Our glass fish garden art comes with a 10-inch metal stake. This length was chosen to help keep the cost of shipping low. Additionally, because we use a standard diameter metal rod as our garden stake, a custom length rod that fits your needs is available for purchase at most local hardware stores. We have seen them in lengths up to 4-feet. Therefore, all that is needed is a swap with no construction needed on your part.

Wall Mountable Glass Fish Art

All of our glass fish art is wall mountable. But not all are garden art compatible. This is mainly due to the size of the glass fish. However, on special request we can make it work for a garden piece of art. Here is a list of glass fish that are mainly for wall mount purposes--or a stand if you prefer.

Glass Fish Construction

Isaiah's glass fish take 4 to 6-days to create. Each glass fish undergoes four to six separate firings. The construction and the amount of time the glass is in the kiln during one separate firing, equates to 1-day.

The glass is cut by hand into a fish shape using a TOYO cutter tool and by saws with diamond blades. Torch work is also used in some pieces.

The glass fish have a 3D appearance by incorporating his clay ceramic forms which are created for each fish species. The glass is then fired over the ceramic clay mold (also known as glass slumping) to give the glass fish its final bowed shape.
