On the sample board of a glass tile product line, Martha Bubert saw the colors of sunlight reflecting off snow. For months, the Westminster artist, who is a designer for a downtown flooring store, collected the 1-inch tiles that would otherwise be discarded, storing them in a kitchen drawer at home. This fall, when she began to work on a handcrafted holiday wreath, Bubert dumped out a rainbow of 900 tiles on her dining room table and spent hours arranging an inspired tile mosaic called "Winter Reflections."
