ARTful: using or characterized by art and skill

Salvage: to rescue or save especially from wreckage or ruin

[ARTful] Salvage was born from a love of creating, repurposing and salvaging. I simply abhor seeing perfectly "useful" items headed for the landfill or tucked away in a cardboard box, never seeing the light of day. I believe there is always beauty to be found, even under a layer of rust or a coating of dust. I see scratches, dents or imperfections as badges of honor to be worn proudly. I have a great love for the history, story and life of a piece. We lovingly dream up ways of restoring new life to these discarded and neglected fragments of life. I am glad you are here and hope you will come again often. Please make yourself at home; friends are always welcome. I'd be thrilled to hear from you and get to know you better.

New stained glass mosaic windows - UPDATE!

work is progressing well on the 8 windows. I already shared the first version of the orange window with you. It has since undergone 2 revisions and will be glued down this afternoon. Woot Woot! Here are the 3 new windows, glued and ready for grouting tonight. They are so unique it is hard for me to choose a fave. How about you?

These windows are sold but we will happily design and make a window to your specifications. New windows will be listed soon on Etsy. Contact us for info! :)
