Contemporary Stained Glass

We work in a studio environment where creativity prevails. We create each window, one at a time by hand and eye and guarantee that it will never be duplicated. We do this because we believe that our work is a tangible expression of our development as artists. We are happiest when we are using our minds and hands to explore our imaginations, giving us a deep sense of fulfillment at the end of the day.

The most challenging part of our work is working with the unknown every day. We have sold an idea that has never been executed in most cases, will be in an architectural setting and seen by many people for years to come. This is a huge responsibility that we take very seriously.
