Vintage Glass Insulators

Adorn the walls of your home or office space with a still life print, featuring my photography of several antique glass insulators from a personal collection. See more in my shops: Pixels, ArtFlakes & ArtPal.

Imperfection

In my considered opinion, its absolutely true – imperfections are perfectly beautiful. Unique characteristics provide interest and greater beauty than that which is otherwise commonplace. Relative to this vintage glass macro photography, it’s the air bubbles, variations in thickness of glass, color and discolorations, pitted surface, etc., which make it especially appealing.

Vintage Green Glass Insulators

Enjoy this still life photography of vintage glass insulators in shades on green. Formerly used on electrical utility poles, these insulators have been in my collection of vintage glass items for several decades. Now, you may also enjoy them on any of various print types available through my gallery at Fine Art America. Thanks for stopping by!

During my childhood in Marquette, Michigan, one of my favorite hobbies was collecting old bottles. With my brother and various friends, we would gather our supplies (garden shovels and spades, gloves, plastic pales and old pillow cases), and begin the adventure to a local hillside behind what was referred to as the ‘Haunted House’. There we would excavate until we grew tired, carefully extracting from the soil whatever treasures we could uncover.

Many decades later, I’ve retained only a fraction of the collection which I’d amassed during my youth. Presented here with enhancements through the use of Adobe Photoshop, three round bottom bottles highlight a beauty in their imperfections, with air bubbles, thick and uneven glass, and a wonderful hue of blues and greens.

If interested, a variety of print types (canvas, framed, acrylic, metal, wood and art prints) are available from this collection at my gallery at Fine Art America. Thanks for looking.
