The Stained Glass Studio
After spending eight years living and working abroad, I finally moved back to the U.S. and into my dream home: a Frank Lloyd Wright original. My Frank Lloyd Wright Stained Glass Studio is in its basement, where I create stained glass windows. I’m a member of the local historical society and also give Frank Lloyd Wright house tours of my hometown
Stained Glass Inspired by Nature
Wright was inspired by nature. My stained glass work was also inspired by nature. Not by the beauty of nature but rather by its destructive force.
When a leaded glass window in my home was damaged in a wind storm I decided it was time to learn the craft of stained glass work. I wanted to replace the window and found out how expensive custom stained glass windows could be.
Fortunately, my father had taken up stained glass as a hobby at one point in his life. A short trip to my Dad’s workshop later and I had all the tools I needed to start a new hobby of my own.
Creating Handcraft Gifts
While I’m happy to not have the misfortune to be regularly replacing windows in my home, I still felt like I needed the opportunity to practices and hone my glass skills.
The obvious answer was to just start making stuff. And that I did. Currently, you’ll find some of my unique handmade gifts available on Etsy. Check out my Etsy store to see my latest pieces.
