Hi all,
While Ive been creating Tiki style carved glass, this is a little off that path.
A custom 22" x 38" x thick piece of glass that is going into a home bar in Texas. This will have LED lights below it.

Also, some new shooters glasses. 5" tall real thick and heavily carved!
Take care all, happy 2007!

Carved? How'd you do that? I thought that would be sand blasted!?

Yes, it is sandblasted, but I've gotten in the habit of calling it carved, or sandcarved, or sandblasted/carved.

Thanks for the compliments! Yeah, I could do a Tiki panel for sure--maybe even add some colors. I'm sure in the near future I'll work on a detailed piece. But if anyone has any custom ideas, I'm open and ready!!

Kyle,

I gotta tell you, your Tiki vase has been on my e-bay favorites list for longer than I can remember. Once The Angry Idol (the tiki bar I'm building in my lanai) is complete, I know I'll be getting something from you, if only the flame glasses. Keep up the amazing work.

Cool Lunchbox,
Hey, I'm in Gainesville, so I could easily do a piece for your bar.
Yeah, some Tiki vases go quick, others hang out for a while. I'll be working on new ones soon.
Take care!
