Our Summer so far...


This summer has had more rain then we are used to seeing for this time of year. It was a nice reprieve to those dry days! We have continued making lovely pieces for our imaginative clients and Penny was even able to create a piece for the San Diego County Fair, matching their “Oz-some” theme. Looks like she nailed it! We hope you got a chance to see it at the fair, but you can pay us a visit at Glass and Mirror Shoppe and see it on display along with a variety of other stained glass overlay pieces.

As the days have been warm and sunny, we’ve been working hard (and dreaming of beach days), to keep creating works of art. Contact us today to brighten your home, office, business, or church! Stained glass overlay is wonderful as windows or door inserts, hanging art, or even a tabletop! Plus, we can bring small details or full images to mirrors and shower doors!

Hobbies on Glass!

Art and creativity are the passions that drive us at Art Glass Overlay. We have the ability to bring a multitude of designs to glass. Some recent works have inspired us to share some Hobbies on Glass we have done and we hope it inspires you to contact us about getting what you love on glass!

Our slideshow can show you some of the passions we brought to glass, check it out and comment on your favorites below!

Gardening - Hiking - Surfing - Birdwatching - Wine making


We’re onto our second week into this new year, and looking forward to serving our customers in all their glass and mirror needs! We kept busy last year taking care of northern San Diego’s homes and businesses and will continue to do so this year. We will continue providing windows, glass repair, shower doors, stained glass overlay, and all the rest as seen on our website. 

Here at the shop, we hope everyone has a wonderful trip around the sun, and you think of us when glass needs arise!

Mirror, Mirror...in progress!

If you know about our Stained Glass Overlay process, you may be surprised to find out that we can place it on mirrors as well (and showers!). It is a different process than placing it on non mirror glass, and the results are fantastic! Here are some detail shots of a mirror we are working on at the Glass and Mirror Shoppe. We just love the idea of surrounding your reflection in things you love. Check out our artistic sea creatures!

Seagull Repair!

Seagull repair? Whatever could that mean? Here at the shop, we provide some unique glass services, and this includes repairing glass figures. Our wonderful client brought in a pair of amazing glass seagulls who's feet had broken off. Using a UV-cured adhesive, we reattached the feet for a strong fit! Check out the before and after images!



We made it into the fair!

The Glass and Mirror Shoppe was pleased to find out our art glass overlay succulent and dragon pieces were accepted into the San Diego County Fair in Del Mar! Last week we dropped off our pieces and can't wait to go to the fair! Check out the post on the Shoppe's Google Plus for photos. Once again, great work from our artists and designers, Brandy and Penny!


Hummingbird and Bird of Paradise Overlay

We're sharing some in progress pictures of a multi-piece overlay we are working on! These pieces involve hummingbirds and birds of paradise flowers creating a wonderful tropical piece. Here we have the outline under the glass with the beginnings of the lead being placed. Below is the back of the piece showing the colorful lamination without any of lead lines on that side put in yet. Artists Brandy and Penny are hard at work finishing this piece!


A new year at the Shoppe

Art Glass Overlay is based out of the Glass and Mirror Shoppe in Carlsbad. We are onto our fifth year in this location, and could not be more proud! While providing many glass projects with Art Glass Overlay working on the art glass side of things, we are planning on this to be a year of growth. Already things have been very busy this year, and we look forward to working on all the projects we can! We would like to thank everyone again for looking to us for all their art glass needs and to the Glass and Mirror Shoppe for all those other home and commercial glass needs!

Remodeled Web-site

ArtGlassOverlay.com has been around since the late 80's and our site since 2007... as with all things, change is inevitable. Since we began GlassandMirrorShoppe.com in 2014 everyday is change and evolution, so we felt it was time to update or site for ArtGlassOverlay.com.

New look and layout for the site! We are sooooo excited about this remodel project. Check back time to time to see what we have added and changed.

Thanks for your business and support.
