Award winning fused glass dinnerware and home décor.
A colourful feast for the eyes.
The birth of Kiln Art can be traced to a magical moment in 1999 when Sharon, an accomplished traditional stained-glass artist, invited her then friend, Paul, to make a fused glass plate at her studio. Paul, an author and former journalist, now Sharon’s husband, took a novel approach that opened up her imagination and set the both of them on a new trajectory in art and life.
Paul’s approach was to use crushed stained glass or frit, as it is known, as if it were paint. It was like painting with coloured sand. Sharon immediately saw the potential in the technique and together they began experimenting and exploring the seemingly endless possibilities.
It took a few years to work out the kinks, but Sharon and Paul grew to become masters of perspective, imagination, creativity and design.
Today, Kiln Art is collected around the world by individuals attracted to its vibrant, rich colors and unique designs. Each piece is handcrafted from the first cut to the final finish and is signed by the artist.
While we are a business with an innovative approach, we still have old-fashioned sensibilities. You can’t just push a button and order Kiln Art – you need to talk to us about what you want because everything we do is made uniquely for you. We’re here to serve you, so don’t be shy.
