Art and Braille Products for the Blind and Visually Impaired
Independence does not have to be boring!
The Loving Touch Connection was created to help connect blind and visually impaired people of all ages to the world of art-- on glassware.
"The Touched By Fantasy 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 - Art & Braille 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. Spanish and French words are also available, 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 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 with the details --I will work with you and your budget for pricing.
