Glass Bathroom ~

Whew!  The bathroom project is completed.
Here's a shot of the vanity back splash.
This is a mix of tiles that were cut down from the
 larger tiles used for the tub surround. 

The counter top trivet was also made from small left over
glass pieces.  I put bumpons on the bottom just to keep
it from sliding on the counter top. 
Love the purple-blue counter top~ it picks up the
neo-lavendar glass & is a good neutral with the other colors.
This is the coordinating tub surround.  It's flanked with
6 inch white tiles for a high contrast look.
The blue strip (3mm) was added after the 6 inch tiles for a
three dimensional and finished effect.

This is the finished piece from the previous post. 
It's a very large piece with all the shapes hand cut, layered
and then tack fused with an extended annealing period.
It'll be mounted about 2" out from the wall on brushed
nickel mounts.  The brushed nickel mounts match the
bathroom fixtures.

The paint color in the bathroom is white and the lighting is halogen
but there's also a glass block window there's plenty of ambient light.
Mounting it away from the wall will allow the glass to transmit
light & color.  Can't wait to see it mounted!
