Memorialize your Beloved Pet in a Stained Glass Pet Portrait

Stained Glass Dog

A photograph encompasses much more than the mere image of the subject. It tells a story of the day, of the life of the pet, and the impact that it had on the owner. Thanks to the shortened life span of most animals, in just a short while that is all most people have of their cherished companions. The sad thing about these pet portraits is that they may be become damaged with time, and fade with the seasons.

Thankfully, there are alternatives available. Custom mosaics can bring longevity to the memory of the cherished companion and act as a stepping-stone to pleasant memories of days gone by. Here is how stained glass windows can help an owner honor the memory of his favorite four legged companions.

Make the memorial a part of the home
Decorations add character and style to any house, and something custom made (with a picture of the pet as a guide) will stand out in any home. A simple photograph can become misplaced, and fades with time. A stained glass window will last as long as you wish.

Beyond the memorial, it can lead to conversations with guests and loved ones. A window can serve as a starting point, introducing your beloved companion to others.

Bring life to a room
A pet brings light into any room he wanders in. It is common for a dog to stimulate smiles from children, and bring visitors closer to hosts. They are a source of comfort, and help turn a house into a home. When regular, white, light hits these stained glass panels, the tinted panes sparkle with the color of the rainbow. Much like the honored pet, these windows will bring a sense of character to the room it resides in, helping turn a dwelling into a home.

Stained Glass – A Forever Gift

Every year, almost everyone has to buy a present for that special person on their list that seems impossible to buy for…..you know……the one that already has everything!  With Christmas upon us you say to yourself; what shall I buy?

Consider one of our many stained glass gift  items. We offer a wide selection of stained glass stepping stones for you garden. Perhaps, you could start a collection of stones, each with a different family members name or grandchild’s name added to personalize their outdoor space or walkway to their favorite outdoor sitting area.

Another great idea are our pet portraits. All we need are a few good pictures of their beloved cat or dog and you can give the hard to buy for person on your list a gift that will delight them for years! If this isn’t in your budget, consider one of our clocks, suncatchers, or book-ends .These look absolutely amazing on a bookshelves or side tables.  Also, you can select from one of many style panels including traditional, contemporary, southwestern or  art deco/nouveau to suit their particular decor. Or perhaps, they already have some sort of collection and you want to add something great to it. Our custom designed stained glass pieces are sure to please!

Another fantastic option for an extra special gift would be custom stained glass windows inserted into cabinet door fronts. I made one for my mother-in-law for the small cabinet over her stove and years later, almost every time I talk to her she tells me how amazed her friends are when they see it. It became to focal point in her kitchen and now she has coordinated all of her linens and dinnerware to match it. So men, listen up! Give the special lady in your life a gift that truly keeps on giving……something shell never forget and something that will remind her of you each and every time she looks at it.
