The artistic potential of cast iron baths

A good soak after a busy day is always a great idea, but not every bathroom will be in the most inviting of states. Tubs are often used extensively, with owners typically neglecting to clean them. This can lead to grime build up and stains that are tricky to remove, even with the most effective of cleaning products. For extreme cases, resurfacing the bath may be the only choice available if you wish for it to be presentable again.

One video on YouTube showcased a Victorian cast iron tub that looked like it had been terribly neglected. Early footage of the bath displays it as being stained, rusted and decaying. In instances such as this, the majority of people would immediately deem it rubbish just like that. Fortunately, one glass artist saw the potential possessed by the tub and made use of her artistic abilities to give it new life.

Making use of vitreous enamels, paint and a heated kiln, the artist remodelled the old rusted bathtub into a remarkable piece that was both functional and inventive. Numerous layers of vitreous enamels were utilised to attain the look that the artist had in mind for the bath. The final design ended up being a one-of-a-kind art bath with a captivating motif that conjures up feelings of serenity and movement.
