Celebrating 13 years of making Loving Touch Connection products!

Unique raised dot braille gifts and products you'll love to give! -- Or keep!

Loving Touch Connection products are daily life essential pieces that seamlessly blend functionality with artistic flair. Elevate your daily life experience with our uniquely crafted coffee mugs, wine glasses, and spice jars, magnets, beer glasses, beverage glasses, soap and lotion dispensers, and more.

Using my own proprietary technique, I hand apply the raised dots for the braille words, and painted designs.

Each piece is designed to delight both visually and tactually.  Messages in raised dot braille are meticulously applied to the surface of each piece. Grade 1 is the default, and Grade 2 is available on request. The message words are also hand-painted in a lovely, easy to read script below the raised dot braille word or message. 

Key Features:

  1. Hand-Painted Elegance: Every piece is individually hand-painted, ensuring a one-of-a-kind work of art that adds a touch of sophistication to your kitchen, dining and living spaces.

  2. Raised Dot Braille: My unique designs feature raised dot Braille messages or words. These tactile elements not only cater to those with visual impairments but also add a distinctive texture for a multisensory experience.

  3. Artistic Designs:  The main focus of Loving Touch Connection is connecting the world of art for people with low vision or blindness with thoughtfully curated designs on objects they will use daily. From vibrant florals to contemporary abstract patterns, each piece tells a unique story, turning your everyday essentials into functional pieces of art. Custom orders are welcome!

  4. Raised Outlining: My attention to detail extends to applying raised outlining on the design, adding depth and texture to the artistic designs. The user can feel the contours of the design, enhancing the overall aesthetic and tactile appeal of the piece.

  5. Durable Craftsmanship: Crafted with care, these pieces are not just visually appealing but also are durable enough to withstand daily use, making them perfect for both special occasions and everyday indulgence. Microwave and top rack dishwasher safe. 

  6. Versatile Functionality: Whether you're enjoying a cozy cup of coffee, savoring your favorite wine, or adding a pinch of spice to your culinary creations, my collection seamlessly blends artistic expression with practical functionality.

For over 13 years, my hand-painted products have brought joy to, and inspired independence and confidence for people with low vision or blindness. Using my braille products, they feel more connected to the sighted community. My customers rave about how happy their recipient was to receive such a thoughtful, personal braille gift! I am honored to create these beautiful products and enhance their daily lives.

 

Independence does not have to be boring!

The Loving Touch Connection was created to help connect people of all ages with low vision or blindness to the world of art-- on glassware. 

"The Loving Touch Connection braille accented items are beautiful. It is wonderful to be able to read the inscription written on the glass and also to feel the outlined detail of the design pictured. The Braille is raised enough to make it very easy to feel. The Braille is also true to size and durable while touching. The raised edging of the outlined design depicted on the glass allows the visually impaired person to recognize the creative art work. I’m pleased with the prompt delivery of my orders and the outstanding customer service I receive. I will continue to endorse the Loving Touch Connection - Braille and Art products for the visually impaired. 

Thank you Kathy for your amazing ability in creating and designing accessible glassware for the blind and visually impaired community."  -- Rita Lang, Manager of Innovative Programs, Center for Vision Loss, Allentown, PA  

Braille words are done using Grade 1 Braille. Grade 2 available by request. Available in any alpha language (such as Spanish and French, etc.), by request.

All glassware is painted with enamel paint.  After the paint has "cured", the glassware piece is then baked, which permanently fuses the paint to the glass.   Due to harsh dishwasher detergents,  I recommend handwashing only.

If you need a quantity of the same design, please see the link for Custom Orders and e-mail me or call me, with the details --I will be happy to work with you and your budget for pricing.
