beautiful swimming mermaid carved into the glass of a shower wall

Brad Olerik's Shower Wall Project

Brad Olerik approached me about an etched design on a shower wall from heavy gray glass for his renovated bathroom. He wanted a cowgirl riding a killer whale on it. After some research and negotiation we decided on a mermaid instead. He had found a print with a mermaid that he liked. I created a sketch from the original print and from there I and added the fish and the sun.

I worked on this job in an industrial space that belongs to Budget Glass. I could used their work tables and set up a temporary booth where I could work on the over-size pieces of glass
