CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Designer Glass Mosaics is a very unique business in Pineville.
They specialize in "glass as an art form"--by creating fused and mosaic glass products. Tom and Saundra Snyder are the two owners.
Tom left a 25-year career as a Corporate Treasurer and has dedicated the past eleven years to glass work.
Saundra is an award winning water color artist, with over 35 years of experience in the art world. The two make a great team, and what they produces is spectacular.
She will prepare a watercolor rendering of the project and then Tom does the precision glass cutting to produce an amazing piece of artwork.
What they produce is custom glass products with applications for kitchen backsplashes, accent tiles, borders, cabinet panels, fireplace surrounds, wall art and murals, furniture, table tops, backlit backsplashes and bar fronts, vases, platters, wall sconces and other lighting applications.
Several years ago. Tom had the opportunity to organize a group of volunteers to construct a 30,000 hand-cut glass tile mural for Extreme Makeover Home Edition.
The wall mural was constructed in the catering kitchen of the family in Logan, Utah. Saundra, working with Ty Pennington, prepared a digital rendering of the sunburst pattern.
Larry stopped-by to get a tour of the business and check-out some of their new projects.
He also got a lesson is this art form and actually did his own "creation"--based on the Carolina coastline and beach music! It was all on this morning's Larry's Look on NBC Charlotte.
