Numbers in High Contrast

Visibility is our goal at Nutmeg Designs.  House numbers to help people find your place.  Margaret outlines the numbers with a high contrast glass, dark against light, to make the shapes pop.  The outline itself can stay plainly visible or blend into the surrounding background.

Impressionistic Background

Art glass is wonderfully varigated and Margaret can blend subtle tones for an impressionist effect.

Ombre´Effect

For a glow that emanates throughout the piece, Margaret gradates harmonious colors, such as red-orange-yellow, or from dark to light tones in a monochromatic scheme.

Solid Color

For a field of color, Margaret approaches solid, with just enough variation in glass texture, tone, and translucency to keep the surface lively.
