I wanted to thank you for adding one of our etched glass projects to your Casa Alicante ideabook.
Based on the images you have chosen there, I'm certain your own project will be a very beautiful one.

The etched/carved glass door you selected of ours is made of 3/4" thick Starfire, or low-iron glass (the thicker the glass, the deeper, and more pronounced the etch or carve that can be achieved). This type of glass contains far less of the "green look" caused by iron content that most commercial glass exhibits. Our client requested we take our cues and inspiration from the works of Monet, of which most of her master-bath is inspired by, including wall mosaics and flooring as well. There is a handle on the operable panel, which adjoins the fixed panel, both of which are treated with a special coating to resist staining and fingerprinting. As this project is located on the ocean, this coating also resists the damaging properties of salt-air.

Please feel free to contact me directly to discuss the technique, or your specific project. We are always glad to assist our fellow houzz members in their endeavors in any way we can.

Thank you,
