Welcome Friends: Art and Friendship

We helped inaugurate our friend Kathy’s new kitchen, and one of our Nutmeg Designs’ welcome signs was there to greet us, as was Russell, the orange cat.

Stratoz made pizza, with an oven light years ahead of ours. I had made fridge magnets as a kitchen warming gift. We have known Kathy for 15 years, and she has been a fan of Nutmeg Designs from the beginning.

Russell, on the other hand, is a fan of being the center of attention.

A New Welcome Sign from Nutmeg Designs: Recycled Glass, Youghiogheny, and Love

Welcome by Nutmeg Designs
Welcome Sign in Mosaic by Nutmeg Designs.

Stratoz and I wanted to make sure we had a welcome sign for the Chase Show, August 4th and 5th, 2012.  One of the rewards of going through the piles of scraps on Stratoz’s glass cutting table was finding some more of the awesome Youghiogheny sheet of glass that has inspired us both, and the scraps became the nucleus of the welcome.  The border is composed of Vidrepur tiles made from 100 %  recycled glass, with the cool name of Red Sea. Vidrepur has a slide show of the transformation from a mountain of broken windshields into beautiful tiles.
