Musician Inspired Guitar Art
In The Form Of Glass Sculptures
One-of-a-kind glass sculptures that incorporate the body of an acoustic guitar as canvas is a natural fit for bold and expressive work. As you can see, artist Amy Voss, is passionate about discovering new ways to hone her work. At times, she has incorporated gold leaf into the background of some of her designs to add a subtle shimmer. Most recently, she started using electric guitars in addition to her original acoustic guitars to create unique guitar art sculptures.
Glass Guitar Art For Self Expression
Beyond their initial interest, our glass guitar art sculptures symbolize the essence of self-expression. Additionally, they serve as a reminder of music or artists that have made an impact on you. These guitars that can hang in your home will be reminders of music that has brought you joy. And just like a musician picks up a guitar and lets their soul burst forth in a harmonious symphony, these sculptures are a celebration of individuality, creativity, and the bold pursuit of dreams. Every life has a soundtrack, what’s on yours?

The Process of Creating Guitar Art
To create a guitar art sculpture, or ’glass axe,’ Amy works in painstaking detail to apply glass, glass ‘frit,’ grout, and resin (and sometimes additional details such as gold leaf) to a guitar’s body and neck, each piece taking about two weeks to finish. Amy’s process starts by prepping an acoustic guitar – stripping off the strings and bridge, and preparing the surface for glass and adhesive. From sheets of glass, Amy hand cuts various shapes and sizes, and lays out each piece on the guitar canvas to define the primary design. Next, using a Dremel rotary tool, Amy smoothes the rough edges. After the initial design is intact, Amy applies ‘frit,’ ultra-fine particles of glass, in careful layers to create depth and texture. The frit process is hyper-detailed and requires precise application with small tools such as a toothpick to manipulate the glass. Typically, Amy uses grout, finely applied with a paintbrush, to unite the design. Next, residual grout is meticulously removed from the surface with a toothpick and a lint free cloth. Finally, grouted edges are reinforced with resin, and the piece is complete.
What Gives Our Guitar Art Sculptures An Edge
Each guitar art sculpture in our collection is a testament to the artist or band it represents. And as a music lover herself, Amy loves the challenge of working on a new guitar inspired by a musician.
