Bryce & Doyle Starburst Shower

Spa water jets, glass tile and UltraGlas provide a unique retreat. Created with the help and vision of Nancy Gong, the UltraStarburst adds a spiritual element to the room.
 
Richard Doyle, the force behind Bryce & Doyle is full of ideas, but when it came to the Wine Room, he left the design to the artist. "Influences" is what came to fruition. It is a wonderful abstract design interpreted in etched and hand chipped glass that celebrates wines and the feeling of joy throughout the world. The design is formal, relaxed and playful all at the same time. Wow! Stop in to see for yourself.
