Muskoka Masterpiece

Friday, November 11th, 2016

We spent the last two days up in the Muskoka region installing this incredible 11ft diameter tree canopy dome. Most of our projects at Solarium are made with clear glass, however, this piece clearly necessitated lush forest greens and calming sky blue cut glass, and we were happy to oblige.

As Bill says, this colourful canopy is "tree-mendous!"

Here’s a look at the installation process we undertake for a large piece like this:

Fall Updates!

Thursday, November 3rd, 2016

Fall has proven to be a busy time over here at the studio! We hope you all enjoyed a spooky Halloween. Our work space easily takes on an extra air of eeriness at this time of year…

There’s surprises around every corner & cupboard door here at Solarium!

We have many projects on the go right now, so we will be updating more frequently. Be sure to check in next week as we have an incredible piece here that is near completion. We can’t wait to show it off!

Here’s a look at a recent glass panel install we completed for a client. Classic & refined.
