Art Gallery makeover

Planning on visiting the Maho Bay art gallery soon? As of today you'll greeted with our new custom crushed-glass and cement counter top at the entrance. The project has been underway for the past couple of weeks right next to our glass studio. First the molds were made for the entire counter top. Next the poured concrete and fiberglass was mixed. All the custom glass work was then placed into the wet cement/crushed glass. The sanding and polishing (all 8 hours worth) was next, which only left the installation! Whew!

Above is the counter top after being removed from the mold and pre-sanding/polishing.

The final result (below & above) takes some time to appreciate and find all the custom pieces of glass that were placed into the concrete.

It was a thrill for me to be at Maho while Ginger and Dan were making this countertop. I posted about it today on my blog:

I hope I get the chance to return to Maho and see it installed at the gallery. The table tops are all gorgeous, as are the sinks, and the counters...
