Dreamwalls Glass
There are several manufacturers of back-painted glass in the U.S. It probably IS tempered for this application due to the proximity to the heat element. It can be custom colored any color, and fabricated with holes for outlets, switchplates, or - in this case - faucets. We can even create custom outlet and switchplates to match.

Quality points to look for:
1) Starphire low-iron glass is recommended as the substrate for color clarity.
2) A 2-coat backing for opacity and no adhesive ghosting or bleed-through
3) Custom color matching capability
4) Fabrication capability for holes notches, etc.
5) A fully cured backing paint that is neither too "gummy" or brittle for ease of fabrication and installation.

FInd a reputable glass or mirror installer in your area and tell them you're interested in backpainted glass,....like Dreamwalls Color Glass by Gardner Glass Products.

Looks like the glass was cut to the shape of the shell and the bottom of the shell sits down in the glass

If I could have the comforts of indoors while living outdoors, I would. In the meantime, I try to bring a combination of those elements together. Love the 'au naturel' elements shared in the article -- I think they are particularly exciting in a bathing area. The attached pics show 2 different views of the bathing area in one of our designs: an evening view facing the fireplace in the winter and daytime view facing the deck area in the spring.

What is the brand/name of the glass tile you're using for your backsplash?

I would just do the glass. A 3-6" granite splash isn't necessarily "dated" it just looks less custom, more mass-produced, less kitchen, more bathroom (although I still do custom tile sink splashes). I agree that it makes it look like an afterthought when you add tile above a granite splash. As a girl who uses her kitchen, it isn't practical to have only a 3-6" granite splash.

As far as the granite fabricator "recommending" the granite splash let's face it, he makes more money on selling that extra strip. His statement sounds logical but really for those of us who have the countertops meet the tile backsplash, cleaning has never been an issue. And as far as an argument for no granite splash/tile combo the ledge the granite splash makes is a dust/food collector. yuck. Good luck to you!
