Custom work means making my clients happy-- in this case, Bleeker wanted to eat his cat food in style. So, yeah, that's kind of how it went. My client, for whom I had previously made a stained glass window, wanted to bring some glass art into her kitchen in a very practical way. I had made a set of fused glass dishes for her using stripes of bright colors and she enjoyed using them. As a cat lover with 3 rescued cats, she asked me to create a steel and glass tray that would provide a place for her kitties to eat that would also be pretty, colorful, and coordinate with her other dishes. Since it is placed in a corner, we decided to make one side of it rounded so it didn't interfere with their kitchen table and chairs. My client told me what she likes most is it is a decorative piece in the room not just a utilized object. Like all of us, cats have to eat, why not make the area pretty? Bon appetit, kitty cats!
