Custom Painted Glass Vases with Newfoundlands

The Newfoundland Club of New England has hired me to do a number of items for fund raisers. Here are four vases, 3 x 6 inches tall, with the four different colors of Newfoundlands painted on. As with every piece I do, each one is a one-of-a-kind work, no two are alike, even if I use the same model dog. Each piece is a mini portrait of a Newfoundland.

Custom Painted Canister with Icelandic Sheepdog

This custom painted china canister with an Icelandic Sheepdog was done for a client who was giving it to a friend in Iceland. The canister is roughly 9 1/2 inches tall. The top has three painted chickens on it. The design on the canister covers about half the circumference of the piece, showing the portrait of the dog with a background of Icelandic landscape.

Stained Glass Panel with Sussex Spaniel

This custom stained glass panel was done for a couple in North Carolina who breed Sussex Spaniels. The panel was made to fit into a gate that they made for their front yard. I used different textured clear glass to create an interesting effect, and amber granite glass for their kennel name, Island Sussex. I only asked that they bring in the panel when the hurricanes were coming!
