Pet Portraits


Stained Glass Pet Portraits by Pierangelo Tosi

Pet Paintings by Laura Sweeney 

At GAEL Glass and Avant Garde Books, we love pets! We can produce paintings of your beloved pets on ceramics and canvas. With modern technology, we can transfer a photo of your pet to the digital screen as a template for an Italian stained glass design with added drawings by hand. For example, your pet will be in the foreground while a geometric or organic background will emphasize your pet's unique personality. In order to do so, we require that you give us some information about your pet's personality. The German Shepherd (below) is one example. We will be updating this site with additional examples.

This German Shepherd Portrait with the geometric background was built by master artisan, Pierangelo Tosi. 

If you would like to order a "pet" painting or stained glass, please send us a photo of your pet and a description of the project. You may send it to Laura's email address or fill out the contact form on our website. Please do not mail important photos to Laura's virtual mailing address in Michigan; however, you may also write us at that address.

Please, note that the German Shepherd was made from a template, but we can work with your pet's photos as well as Laura's drawings.

 If you will tell us more about your pet, we will be able to customize the design with things like your pet's favorite toys.
