Interior Designer’s Dilemma Solved With Art Glass Windows

Pompano Beach, Florida (PRWEB) November 12, 2014

How does an interior designer create privacy for a bathroom window that looks out onto a busy street? Interior Designer Linda Cohen, ASID, Associate AIA, of L.A. Cohen Design faced this challenge while working with a client on the renovation of an ocean-front luxury home in Palm Beach County, Florida. The home has a grand exterior stairway leading up to the second floor entry with a two-story window on each side facing busy A1A. The original clear glass windows are each 20 wide by 115 tall and offered little privacy for the guest bath and interior stairway and elevator area.

Linda has always admired Tiffany glass and wanted to incorporate art glass into her designs. This was the perfect opportunity. The guest bath was being remodeled with the finest custom cabinetry, plumbing and lighting fixtures, and gorgeous custom wallpaper. The window needed a privacy solution and she thought custom art glass to coordinate with the wallpaper would be a great solution. They would be enjoyed by everyone from both inside and outside the home.

After being referred to glass artist Peter Edward of Krystal Glass Company by Michael Gianvito of Stone Styles, Inc., Linda visited his showroom to explore decorative custom art glass solutions. She brought in a sample piece of the wallpaper she planned to use in the guest bath and consulted with the 30-year glass artist about recreating elements from it in the art glass windows.

After viewing his art glass it was evident that Peter Edward is an excellent artist and a fabulous resource, Linda said.

Working closely with Linda to achieve the exact look she wanted, Peter Edward created a stunning custom art glass solution using etched glass illuminated with LED lights. The glow from the art glass windows would add another unique element of beauty to the inside and outside of the already magnificent home.

My first challenge was to create a design to coordinate with the wallpaper selected for the bathroom that would also look good on the other window in the stairway, Peter Edward said. The second challenge was to make the windows opaque for privacy but also compliment the homes exterior.

Peter Edward reproduced the fine detail of the wallpapers main design onto new low-iron Optiwhite glass using hand carved and etched glass techniques. He completed the look with LED lights to illuminate the art glass windows with a beautiful glow of white light. He created art glass inserts so the existing hurricane impact windows would not have to be changed.

Linda says she is very pleased with the custom decorative solution that Peter Edward created for her client and the prompt, friendly service that Krystal Glass Company provided.

They are a wonderful company to work with on many levels including design, detail, and scheduling, she said. The custom designed and etched art glass windows are the first project I used Krystal Glass Company for. Their quality and finished product was excellent.

Peter Edward created the detailed design from the main scroll work in the wallpaper and hand carved and etched the repeating pattern in the glass panels for both windows spanning the 115 length. He used solid frosted glass for the background to make the glass opaque for privacy. The LED illuminated art glass windows offer exactly what Linda and the homeowner needed- a beautiful design and privacy inside the home. The windows also look very impressive from the street outside especially at night.

Peter Edward Jurgens, president of Krystal Glass Company in Pompano Beach, Florida, is a master glass artist with a 30-year history of creating thousands of custom fine art glass projects by hand in LED illuminated glass, etched glass, carved glass, painted glass, antique mirror and decorative mirrors. His art glass and mirror grace the luxury homes, yachts and offices of clients in his hometown of South Florida and can be shipped to any location. He is well known for highly detailed etched and carved glass designs rich with multi-shaded areas that he achieves by hand.

Quartet of Historical Novels Explores Survival in the Canadian Wilderness

(PRWEB) October 30, 2014

Nearly 100 years ago, the MacIntosh Family left Prince Edward Island to seek a future on the Canadian prairie in Alberta. Their dynamic story is told through their real-life memoirs, along with the addition of some creative fiction. "The Gentle Gamblers" tells an amazing tale of survival and bravery.

This typical family was part of the Canadian dreamers and visionaries who braved the dangers of traveling west to carve out a new life for themselves. Taking few possessions with them, they gambled their very lives to fulfill their dreams, fighting through blizzards, drought, and influenza in the 1920s.

The May 3rd blizzard in fact continued for three days, burying the prairies under three feet of snow. These real people faced catastrophic events with uncommon bravery.

Watch the video book trailer at:

About the Author: Lillian (MacIntosh) Ross was the 14th of 15 children born to Donald and Sadie MacIntosh. She earned her bachelors in education at the University of Alberta in Edmonton. Literature courses taken there inspired her to become an author. However, it was not until she retired from teaching, married Reg Ross from the oilfields, and raised two sons, Lonnie and Erin, that she finally made her trilogy of historical novels of pioneer adventure a reality. What started to be one book of family memoirs became a trilogy of historical novels about the MacIntosh Family, who travelled west to the Canadian prairies. The urge to restore important moments lost to time took over. She wanted to tell their real stories with actual names of people and places, and yet write a novel that readers could be part of, so her books are creative nonfiction. She has two sons and is a widow.

"THE GENTLE GAMBLERS" (e-Book ISBN: 978-1-62212-874-7, Kindle ISBN: 978-1-62212-875-4) is available for $ 9.99 at:, or for Amazon Kindle, Barnes & Noble Nook, and in multi-formats for other e-Readers through numerous vendors online.

Life was not easy for the 15 children born to Donald and Sadie MacIntosh. Their life is enfolded into an account of living on the great northern plains of Canada in "The Tender Years: A Canadian Historical Novel of Pioneer Adventure" Second Edition (Revised): Volume Two of a Trilogy. This is a story about real people living through real events in Canadian history, while carving out a life for themselves with uncommon bravery.

Donald and Sadie emigrated west from Prince Edward Island in Eastern Canada and spent nearly four years on the Alberta prairies, where they gambled everything on raising wheat. Between dust storms, hail, prairie fires, blizzards, and a difficult landlady, the family was finally beaten into submission. Loading their few possessions, they moved north in a railroad boxcar to the bushland to face new challenges. Meanwhile the family is growing. By the time they reach the northern bush country, they have eight children.

This extraordinary story of courage comes from the memoirs of these children as they grew up. The people they met and the conditions they endured made living in the North memorable, heartbreaking, and sometimes frightening, but there are also tender and humorous moments. This is the second book in a trilogy following The Gentle Gamblers.

Your readers share the familys sorrows, its laughter and tears. It serves as a reminder of how much we owe these brave pioneers. An excellent well-written narrative. Eric Brown, Magnolia Press

"THE TENDER YEARS: A CANADIAN HISTORICAL NOVEL OF PIONEER ADVENTURE" SECOND EDITION (REVISED): VOLUME TWO OF A TRILOGY (Kindle ISBN: 978-1-62857-088-5, ePub ISBN: 978-1-62857-087-8) is available for $ 9.99 at, or for Amazon Kindle, Barnes & Noble Nook, and in multi-formats for other e-Readers through numerous vendors online.

"A Full House" is a historical novel about farm life in Alberta, Canada, in the 1930s, 40s, and 50s.

Based on true accounts, the book is the final in a trilogy, following The Gentle Gamblers and The Tender Years. In her latest novel, Lillian (MacIntosh) Ross writes about her heritage, as the MacIntosh Family moves into their homestead in the northern bushland after living in a series of rented houses. It is here that the pioneer family rides out the Depression, as one by one their children grow up.

Share in their struggles, joys, and triumphs as they survive during this difficult period of history. This story, the people, the incidents that happened, and the places are true, and are taken from the memoirs of the people who lived them. That is why the author calls it creative non-fiction, even though it is written as fiction.

"A FULL HOUSE: A CANADIAN HISTORICAL NOVEL OF PIONEER ADVENTURE" (Kindle ISBN: 978-1-63135-447-2, ePub ISBN: 978-1-63135-446-5) is available for $ 9.99 at, or for Amazon Kindle, Barnes & Noble Nook, and in multi-formats for other e-Readers through numerous vendors online.

Historical fiction writer Lillian Ross based this action-packed novel on a true story. This second edition includes the real names of people and places that were gleaned from newspaper archives and other research.

The real story of Frank Cougar Wright in "Cougars Crossing" tells of a loud, brash, and irreverent pioneer in the Canadian Northwest who came from Wisconsin and the forests of Washington. Cougar swore like a trooper, and didnt believe in a higher power than his own strength. He loved his family and wanted them to join him in his struggle to tame the Canadian wilderness. His story is filled with romance, adventure, and even a ghost!

To read a book by Lillian Ross is to travel to another time and place with characters who quickly become family. Read this true-to-life novel to feel the essence of the rugged area on the Canadian prairies. Corrine McConchie, Vancouver librarian

Could this be his remains, we wondered? The hated man who killed our Aunt Florence in 1921? The facts were overwhelming more fascinating than we ever imagined. Now the story of Cougars Crossing would have to be changed. We knew the truth or most of it.

Notes the author, This book is dedicated to all of the pioneers who lived the stories that I tell.

These books show a way of life that disappeared from the North American psyche long ago. The historical tales offer fascinating reading and we are thrilled to announce the books releases, said Robert Fletcher, CEO of Strategic Book Publishing and Rights Agency.

Award-Winning Poet Rummana Chowdhury Releases New Book

MISSISSAUGA, Canada (PRWEB) November 14, 2014

Award-winning poet and writer Rummana Chowdhury has recently released a book of new poems titled Where Do I Belong (published by Xlibris). This anthology examines the ups and downs of the immigrant experience through the eyes and heart of the author who is herself an immigrant in Canada.

Where Do I Belong is a collection of traditional poetry and free style verses. The characters, themes and storylines within the poems reflect themes of violence, resilience, migration, love, nature, hope, diaspora and survival the many stages that make up the life of migrant women and all other people around the world. As the title insinuates, the book grapples with questions of belonging, identity and home.

I had always envisioned myself as an immigrant, part of a vibrant diasporic community on a journey to the West. But the stark realization that I was now also a Westerner triggered the peak of an ongoing journey where I decided I officially no longer knew where in the world I belonged. Home was in two places and nowhere all at the same time. During my life journey, I have seen so much good and evil in the world. I wanted to portray my many different homes and worlds to others who, like me, were in an incessant search for home and belonging, Chowdhury says.

Proceeds from the sale of Where Do I Belong will be donated to the victims of the Savar tragedy in Dhaka, Bangladesh.
