Welcome to Glass Fish Art !
The online home of Pacific Northwest fused glass artist, Isaiah W. Heyer, of Snoqualmie, Washington.
The delicate balance between the technical and artistic aspects of glassmaking first attracted Isaiah W. Heyer to kiln-forming in 2005. Isaiah began his creative adventure into the art of glassmaking in the Seattle area on Vashon Island in the Puget Sound. In 2012, he moved to Snoqualmie, Washington and reopened his glass shop on Vashon Island, Washington. Through intensive study, practice, and time-honored techniques, Isaiah continues to perfect his glass-making craft.
Being inspired by an Idaho river conservation tour in 2006, Isaiah began the construction of glass fish for the garden. Each glass fish is uniquely handmade. They are fired in a kiln 4-to-6 separate times (depending on species) at various kiln firings to produce color variation and texture, a process called glass fusing.
The fish are designed for a wall-mount application or fabricated with metal stakes for garden art.
GLASS FISH PROJECTS
Current projects Isaiah is working on include a ~35-inch Chinook (King) Salmon. The Chinook (King) Salmon will be wall-mountable or shown as a table-top piece. A ~21-inch Koi as a wall piece of art is also being developed.
Isaiah enjoys working with the natural assets of the environment--water and rock--to transform the ordinary backyard into a garden retreat tailored to the specific style of the homeowner. Consultations are available, as Isaiah will work with you to... Go to !
