Glass and paws

We are redesigning the table cover with a pattern of wonderful paw prints, while Steve sticks glass to the wall.

do the gingers wish to know where their food is? lovely glass!

Elizabeth said...

Isn't it wonderful to surround ourselves with all forms of art - the shimmering glimmer of Gingers and the glitter of glass! Lovely!

Protest sit in?

because it should've been a design of pawprints and a running cat?

(personally I love the hare...but then I'm not a cat)

That is so beautiful. Love the colors and it was fascinating to see it put together.

Lovely. Can I come hang out with you Three Ginger Cats? We could call it We Three and the old lady.

This is because the ginger 4 tails are artists too!

Now having that above the cook top would have me wanting to cook something that takes alot of time just stirring while I could just stare at the beautiful art glass!

I simply had to click on the link to Steve's process and am very glad I did.
As the adage says "curiosity killed the cat and satisfaction brought her back".
Cats, don't be alarmed, you all have nine lives.
This is a great art piece in glass, with the labyrinth theme.

I loved seeing the entire process; thanks for the link. The finished piece is gorgeous.

Willow sits on the table, too, preferring placemats. Feather and Shiva Lullaby stare at her in disbelief from the floor/chair/couch because they never even thought to test such a fine idea.

That looks like The Tree of Life design. I expect it is. I love the background colors with the shimmering gold on top. I always think how cozy it must be to live with all those ginger cats -- and some dogs, I believe.

It sits well in its chosen place, Jackie. (As do the cats!)

I was looking at the creation process and wondering how to remove the shaped pieces of carboard and pins so that extra powder isn't spilled on the pattern. It must be a very delicate process.

that is an amazingly, serene and beautiful piece of glasswork...it certainly makes being in the kitchen surreal...

quiltcat said...

Gorgeous backsplash - and an absolutely fascinating process to make it. Thanks for sharing.

OMG, I love that first photo. It's moody and dreamy and hints at mischief.

Then, I scrolled down and saw, Bunnies. Always a good thing!

(I just hopped over from June's place over at Aging Gratefully).

Blessings,
