Mosaic Cat Table

Posted by Kit on December 22, 2012 in Mosaics with No Comments


Here is my latest completed project. I made this table for a customer in Florida. This reclaimed mosaic table measures 18" wide x 36" long x 15.5" high. Each piece of glass was cut, shaped and the edges were ground to make them fit. I used several different colors of grout to provide shading. The glass is made by Spectrum and the mosaic was grouted and then sealed with Diamond Crete sealer. This table took over 87 hours to complete. # of pieces: boatload

Amber, Jasper and Holly

Posted by Kit on April 22, 2012 in Mosaics with No Comments


Amber, Jasper and Holly were long-time beloved mascots of the Souris Valley Animal Shelter.

I based the mosaic on the portrait pictured below on the right. I hope I was able to successfully capture the spirits of Amber, Jasper and Holly. This was a donation to the Souris Valley Animal Shelter’s annual banquet. I’m happy to report that this table “fetched” $560.00 at the live auction for the SVAS!

Our pets are our children, our loving friends, and companions. Carry your beloved pet where ever you go. I make Custom Fused Glass Pendants and Pins to memorialize your beloved friends forever.

I use a very small amount of cremated remains (cremains) to incorporate into Fused Glass. You can be assured that the cremains are handled with the utmost respect and care. The cremains are fashioned into a swirl design; the swirl represents the “Circle of Life”.

Pendants and pins can be ordered in a wide variety of colors and styles. The pendants are mounted on a nickel plated zinc bail. This is but a small sampling of what is available. I will work personally with you to specially customize your Heart Print. Each Heart Print is unique and one of a kind.

A portion from the sales of these items is donated to the Souris Valley Animal Shelter.
