blue by you Bear Creek's Blue Glass sink collection molds cobalt glass into artistic forms such as a shallow, lipped bowl or an amorphous wave. The vessel lavs are handcrafted in four styles: Classic, Fusion, Ocean, and Splash. Although glass is often perceived as fragile, the manufacturer is confident enough in the products' durability to offer a lifetime warranty against wear or breakage.

glass tacks Sietto is a new company specializing in handmade glass hardware. Each pull and knob is made of individually cut pieces of glass fused together into a 3/8-inch-thick mass. The glass is then mounted on a solid brass base in five stock finishes: satin nickel, oil-rubbed bronze, polished chrome or brass, and antique brass. Sietto, 312.513.6968; www.sietto.com.
sea craft Yorgos Studio creator George Papadopoulos dove deep to find inspiration for his latest series. Abstract versions of underwater forms both organic and crystalline become architectural glass panels for an array of structural or sculptural applications. The artist's unique process includes smashing, coloring, and texturing industrial glass and then reassembling and re-laminating it to produce imaginative installations like the one seen here.

cristal clear Signed and numbered works of art grace the Cristal de Lalique Collection of luxury bath fixtures and accessories from THG. Each of the collection's four satin-finished crystal designs (Ange, Bambou, Panthere, and Papillon) carry throughout the bath with coordinating shower and tub sets, towel bars, soap dishes, and hooks. The plumbing fixtures are solid brass in precious metal finishes such as gold, silver, bronze, and rhodium. The Bambou faucet, shown here, is available in clear, black, or amber crystal.

door lore ClearCast Glass door panels tell their tales through design. The repetitive ridges of the Echo, for example, represent the physical embodiment of reverberating sound. The rest of the story is found inside the glass, where each compartmentalized hollow contains more than double the typical airspace used to make insulated glass. The tempered, thermal glass insets are framed in mahogany, clear vertical-grain fir, and other rich woods. Choose from 16 styles. Sculptural Glass Doors, 360.325.8968; www.sculpturalglassdoors.com.
