Defining Designs by cms brings beauty and inspiration into the home, garden or office. As a web designer, Brenda Halverson found herself being inspired by mosaic art and the vision that could be conveyed simply by re-cycling materials and bringing them back to life. “The way someone decorates, the colors they use, the style, etc. all define who we are and what makes us so different”.
Defining Designs by cms (definingdesignsbycms.com) creates custom art using customer’s favorite colors, a broken piece of china that has sentimental value, shells they found on a favorite trip, items being discarded from others such as tiles, tables, wood, glass, jewelry, etc. Beautiful abstract art can be created around a special event or family story. Ms. Halverson creates art that will make you smile and feel at home, yet be a conversation piece for years to come. She would like to keep items out of the landfills and give purpose to items once thought of as used up.
The materials used in her pieces are vast and include, but are not limited to, vitreous glass, smalti, stained glass, beads, gems, rocks, ceramics, mirror, shells, jewelry, tile, paper, metal, etc. She can custom design anything from a table, wall art, vases, frames, mirrors, trivets, backsplash, coasters, a lazy susan, candleholders, raised dog feeder, birdbath, birdhouse, garden sphere, flower pots, address sign, dog leash holder, plates, wine stoppers, etc. Anything can have a mosaic designed on it so the possibilities are only limited by your imagination.
