When you’re looking for truly gorgeous work, done by a renowned artist, there’s no better place to start your search for the right piece than with Mitchell Larsen Studio. All of the pieces we design are handmade, created especially for each customer with a focus on originality and quality.
For custom glass décor in Saint Croix, VI, we follow a thorough process that ensures your custom idea is being processed with care and created in the image of your design. Here’s how it works:
We start by working with you to design the custom piece you’re envisioning. Each design is sketched and scanned into a computer, digitized into a format that can be further refined and perfected. We collaborate with you to make sure the final rendering is exactly what you want it to look like.
Once your design is finalized, we take the design file and program it into our state-of-the-art glass cutting machine. The machine uses high-pressure water to make intricate, specific cuts to shape your glass.
Once the glass is cut, we apply color by hand it each piece! This process requires specialized materials and a delicate approach, ensuring the color is rich and vibrant after the entire piece is fired.
When color is done being applied, your custom glass creation is placed in our kiln and fired. During this process, powdered glass is melted into a semi-soft state that allows the color to take hold.
When the coloring process is finished, individual glass pieces are then added to plates and trays to create the final work of art. These arrangements are placed back into the kiln for a second round of firing, to bond all of the pieces together. Everything comes out as a finished product that looks beautiful and gleams brilliantly.
