Aqua Washed Wall

Even a pale, muted, faded color can look intense in the right setting. Funny how a splash of faint color can bring new life to the most drab surroundings, and make it beautiful.

The Call of Cobalt


Handmade in Cobalt Blue

When you see that unique shade of cobalt blue captured in glass, do you feel like you’re about to fall into an ocean? I think it would be warm and clear and full of exciting marine life. Cobalt blue glass is much better than a crystal ball.

What do you see?

Tropical blue is a wonderful mood enhancing color. If only it would jump off the page and wash right over you.

Can you imagine the warm sand, the salty air, and the gentle sounds of the surf?

Is there anything more mysterious or beautiful than a red sky? A crimson sunset can stir up many emotions, foretell the future, and inspire an artist.

Red is quite the powerful color, especially when it shows up in unexpected places.

In the Navy


Did you know that Great Britain is behind two of the best blues? Deep azure, or royal blue, is said to have been created for the wife of King George III. And that deepest of blues – and most colorful of neutrals – was named after the British Royal Navy. Both have been around since before the 1800’s.

Waves of Menthol


Turquoise is such a cool and refreshing color.  It’s one part stone, one part ocean, and one part menthol.  But one of these things is not like the others.  It’s interesting how we can associate colors with both natural and man made sensations and themes.

Do you prefer the natural, or synthetic moods of turquoise?
