Commissioning Glass Artwork

Glass Art Commission

Cathy Shepherd’s glass artwork adds pops of nature-inspired color to architectural design and a variety of residential and commercial spaces. Her handcrafted glass art work is one-of-a-kind, and is featured in national galleries, private homes, government buildings, and more.

This past year I’ve been very blessed to have had the opportunity to create large wall panels for both residential and commercial interiors and exteriors. One of my visions is to liven-up the spaces where so many of us have to wait: especially for the doctors!  Enjoy previewing the following images.
