Completed Projects - Signs
This was a custom order from one of our favorite customers. They purchased an address many years ago and later purchased our first Shower Splash (see backsplash page). We used 6" x 6" glass squares to create this 42" diameter finished sign. Paradox meaning: "Contradictory Features" using the Sun & Moon along with the Octopus & Pelican we created for new foreground images along with a new background image we added to our Library of backgrounds. Font is "Henry Penny, border tile is Opening Night Orange. Picture below is of our delivery. It was nice to see their 5 year old Glass Tattoo Address still looked like new!
Seas the Day
Custom sign created with 6.75" square sections with a finished size of 32.75" x 46.5". Image was uploaded by customer and is of the original image prior to installing outdoors. Font is Princess Sofia, Border Tiles are Bermuda Blue. This sign was originally hand painted by their niece but due to weathering, after 3 years it needed a inside home. Below image is of the weathered original Sign (click to Enlarge).
I Sea The Water
We love signs that tell a story and this one is heartfelt. Our customer explained that the name of their Beach House was "I Sea The Water". As the story goes, when their boys were little they would play a game while approaching the Beach, the first one to spot the ocean would exclaim "I sea the Water". If you know a little about Bolivar Beach in Texas, as you approach it, the highest point is on top of the bridge crossing the intercoastal waterway. We used our background library image " Amazing Sunset" and added a bridge along with the Name. Font is "Henny Penny. Sign is Outlined with "Opening Night Orange" border tiles. The (now all grown up) boys presented this to their parents as a present. Click image to enlarge.

This customer sent us a picture of a ceramic cottage they purchased overseas. (Meaning in French is Cottage by the Sea). They selected a few foreground images. The background is a modified version of "Sunset Bay" from our Background Library. Border Tile Color is "Ivy". This is a Iridized Tile (note the color changes with the sunlight). Sign Dimensions are 45.75" wide and 26" Tall.

Nuts & Bolts
Here is another sign that tells a story. Our customer's last name is "Bolt" and their Beach Home's Name is "Nut's and Bolts". Notice the lightening Bolt on the right of the sign and the Coconuts in the boat. Grandma Bolt is on her chair drinking from her coconut cup while their three grandchildren are on the Palm Branch sipping on their open coconuts and laughing at the shore birds who can't get into the Coconuts on the ground. We used the iridized "Opening Night Orange" border tiles on this sign that measures 19.25" high and 55.75" Wide.
