Great Glazing

The ‘celebrity’ shower

When a celebrity asked Creative Mirror & Shower to create a shower enclosure that was "unique and made a statement," the company decided to incorporate an innovative backlit satin-etch glass into the design to illuminate the entire enclosure. "This large shower takes on its own ambience when the normal lights are off and the backlit satin etch glass stays illuminated," explains Mark Pritikin, president, Creative Mirror & Shower.

Agalite Shower & Bath Enclosures, www.agalite.com, supplied the 3/8-inchthick satin-etch glass for the back wall of the enclosure, in addition to the ½-inch clear, tempered glass for the remaining sides. A small band of decorative glass tiles on the plumbing wall complements the illuminated glass. In addition, Creative Mirror & Shower installers applied the ClearShield
System from ClearShield Technologies to the glass to resist staining and discoloration, and make it easier to clean.

The enclosure features hardware from C.R. Laurence Co. and Portals Hardware.
