Glamorous “Plume” in Black, Ivory and Mirror art glass
‘Tis the season for bright lights, glittery ornaments and other holiday razzle-dazzle.
We are producing an Art Deco-inspired tile for a design firm in Calgary that will be sure to bring glitz and glamour for years to come. They have chosen our three-coloured “Plume” Art Glass Mosaic to be made from our Black, Ivory and Mirror glass. This tile will be adorning the wall of a pub, and with the combination of glass colours chosen, it’s sure to demand attention.
Thinking of adding some sparkle to a space by way of tile? Give us a call!
We announced our Ready-to-Ship Collection – 5 designs, each with its own colour/mix - and have been getting a great response that has been keeping us really busy (thanks!). Within weeks of our announcement, we’ve received requests to expand the mix, offering designs in some of the other Ready-to-Ship colours. And since we are small and nimble…. its done! So here is what we shipped last week – Siraj in Watercolour. Pretty!
So it’s official. Siraj is now available in two colours – Roan and Watercolour. We’re adding to the combinations of colours and patterns, so stay tuned.

We consider ourselves supporting actors in our relationships with designers, and recently had the pleasure of working with the designers at Vancouver’s Kennedy Crawford Design .
Here is the storyline:
A client approached the design team at Kennedy Crawford with a vision. Their vision included the creation of a backsplash with elements of a specific green that the client wished to carry throughout their space.
Kennedy Crawford contacted Edgewater Studio to partner in creating a custom backsplash. Our tile designers worked with Kennedy Crawford to ensure the design and colours were just right. The tile was created, vision achieved, and the client was delighted!
Don’t we all love happy endings?
It has been many months in the making. We created new designs, found new art glass to bring out the best in each design, and, voila!
So we are pleased to introduce you to Bijou, Harlequin, Siraj, Laurel and Seto, hand-made in our Studio, and each available in its own classic (but never boring!) shade of glass.

Friends have recently completed a rebuild of their home.
Our friends are “those type of people” who are not professionally trained in design, yet they have terrific vision and talent. I would love to feature the whole house and the landscaping, but I think that my amateur photography skills wouldn’t do it justice. Suffice it to say that it is a beautiful combination of wood, glass and slate, with custom touches everywhere. So, here are some shots of the kitchen, which includes a custom backsplash of our Charcoal backpainted glass tile. The photos don’t quite capture the way in which the natural light from the walls of windows behind me, play off the tiles. It’s gorgeous.
I have a bad case of house envy…..
Our updated website is finally up and running. These little projects always seem to take longer than originally expected, don’t they??
We listened to your feedback when using our original site, and used this to guide the design of the “new” Edgewater Studio. Our goal was to make sure the site would serve as a go-to tool for our design clients, allowing you to easily find the information you need, and then to support you in designing the perfect tile for each project.
As always, we are here to help. The one thing that will never change is the attentiveness and expertise of our design team.
We hope that you can take a minute and have a look!
We’ve had the pleasure of again working with the designers at House and Home Magazine. In January’s issue, some of our Art Glass Mosaics were included among the trends for 2013. In February’s issue, Sally Armstrong gets to show off the renovation of her home. We were flattered when Sally came to us with an image of a stone floor she had found several years ago, asking us to create the field tile pattern. If you hit this link, Sally’s Tour, she will give you a personal tour of her family home. Love the little touches that flow from one room to the next – like the built-ins that extend from the kitchen to the family room, and the pocket doors between the dining counter and the kitchen. We know that you will enjoy browsing this great site. Thanks for visiting.
We have disappeared from our blog for so long that we almost forgot how to log in! Not good….. Well, let’s get a fresh start. Happy 2013 to you all! We are going to provide slightly different content in some upcoming posts, so hope that you will stick around to read them. But for today, we wanted to show you a fun project with a creative Calgary homeowner who is designing a lovely Arts and Crafts home. Our client saw the Sand Dollar Artistic Stone floor tile profiled last year in Style at Home Magazine.
The home will include highlights such as stained glass windows, often seen in classic Arts and Crafts style. To complement this, she asked us to create a frame for a bathroom mirror, using a re-sized Sand Dollar design in art glass. Here are some shots of the frame, laid out on the Studio floor as we were preparing to package it. We just love this kind of collaboration!
To our client- it has been a pleasure! Please send pictures!
Have you picked up your copy of June’s Style at Home magazine? If you haven’t yet, hurry! This month’s magazine heralds in summer with a burst of colour. Here’s a sneak peek that just happens to include a custom kitchen backsplash from our Studio. And what a great project! So, here is the evolution:
1) It all started with a swatch of beautifully stiched fabric. The homeowner wanted the backsplash tile to pull in the colour in the fabric, which was destined for window coverings in an adjoining room; 2) A few renderings were sent, with various design and glass colour options; 3) The homeowner chose her preferred design and colour combination, and a custom sample was ordered; 4) Decision made, tile ordered, kitchen reno magic happened and voila! A bright and vibrant kitchen emerged.
Thanks as always to the wonderful team at Style at Home magazine. And thanks to you for visiting. The Studio Crew
