Deb Kubik Designs creates originally designed fused glass plates, art pieces and jewelry. The pieces range from realistic landscapes, floral & cloudscapes that depict the rural Nebraska areas, to abstract pieces all done in fused glass. They use glass frit to create a watercolor look on glass to create depth of color and detail. In some of the pieces, they use whole pieces of glass to create stronger color with bold pieces of solid glass fused to each other. All of the pieces are original in design and created individually; they are all then fired in a glass kiln to fused the glass together. No two pieces are exactly the same, giving each individual their own unique piece of original glass artwork. They also use recycled wine and beer bottles to make serving pieces or wall decor.
