Phyllis D, NY, USA

Abstract 1 (bought as a gift):

"Hello Fran, just want to let you know that we rec'd it yesterday and it's beautiful ! Thanks again."

Paul V, CA, USA

Commission: from customer's own design:

"The panel looks beautiful. I suppose I was expecting the panel to be a bit more concealing as a privacy panel, and the "pebble" areas to have more of a raised texture. Nevertheless, I have a panel that I can be very, very proud of and the color of the "amber" is perfect. I almost hate to mention any thing, but I'm sure that you want to strive for the best possible communications. I believe you gave me an excellent price and quality. "
