We feel privileged to own a work by Victoria Balva because she is the best stained glass artist. To be touched by a great work of art, a work of art by Victoria Balva, on a daily basis is a magical experience. There's something mystical about looking at this work and you never get tired of it. You can stare at it again, as you had a thousand times before, and get a new, mystical emotion from it,.. and to me, that’s the definition of incredible art.
Victoria Is an artist! She patiently communicated with us and made great suggestions on the design. It turned to be exactly what we wanted! It is simple, elegant and beautiful!!! The jewels added so much to the design. I could stare at the dome all day long just to admire it! Everybody how saw it loved it. If you have any dome needs I highly recommend Victoria Balva!!!
