For over three
decades, we have worked closely with design professionals and private clients, creating works of art that have become
a fundamental component and the focal point of their setting. In addition, the studio has repaired and restored numerous
windows, stained glass lampshades and reproduced etched glass panels.
encourage our clients to become involved in the stained glass experience by teaming up with them, their architects and interior
designers when requested. Important first steps consist of listening to their needs, observing the intended
space and understanding the light relationship in the location that will receive the stained glass.
about the Stained Glass process, by guiding them through the design and fabrication phases, personalizes each project. Our clients
appreciate the glass art they have commissioned when they are involved in the phases of creating the piece. Our designs
are created using stained glass CAD software called Glass Eye 2000. We are able to show clients
what their project will look like before it is fabricated. If there are changes requested, we can
provide a very quick turn-around time and email a revised color and / or design image.
Clients are also shown the impact that hand-blown or hand rolled glass will have
on their finished piece. On new commissions, we work together to develop the design concept as well as budget guidelines
and schedules to successfully complete the project. So much of the focus is on what my client envisions and my ability to
bring that vision to reality. People gain great satisfaction and enjoyment in the details of a commissioned piece when they
are brought into the process.
Equally important is an appreciation for the detail work required for a damaged
window or lampshade when we are restoring it. Through careful restoration techniques and glass replacement
when required, the panel or lighting fixture is brought back to life. At the studio, we focus on skillfully matching
not only the glass but the technique of the original craftsperson.
