WHO's "M SOTHERDEN?":
I started playing with broken glass in college, while in pursuit of my BFA. After graduating, I found a job with a well-known stained glass firm, where I designed new windows and restored old ones. And then I went out on my own... My studio has been open for over 8 years now, as I continue to build a reputation for quality work, fair prices, one-of-a-kind gifts, stained glass windows, and glass art.

The designs in my shop are my own - as are the photos, text, and descriptions, and as such, they fall under the auspices of intellectual property. I've worked quite hard on them, and if you like them, that's a wonderful thing. That's how I get some of my customers :) But if you'd like to borrow them for a blog or publication or for any other reason, please ask…

(Borrowing without asking is, in fact, a copyright violation.)

If you'd like a better idea of what sort of windows I currently build, please head by my website http://MSotherdenArtGlass.com as I don't end up listing many of them on etsy. They're just too dang hard to photograph well.

All of my items are made in a smoke free studio. (Typically we smoke only when on fire around here, which is a state we try to avoid... As far as pet-free, well, the puppy only stands about 10" from the floor, we vacuum often and I don't really assemble anything ON the floor where he hangs out, but hey, honesty is the best policy, right?...)

I've been working professionally with glass for a total of 18 years or so at this point, and have seen (and repaired) a lot of very badly made stained glass. I truly believe that an educated consumer is a better customer. (Some of my best customers in fact, are people that have dabbled in stained glass and know what they're looking at when they cross paths with my work!) In the interest of educating consumers of stained glass, if you have questions, please ask.

Thank you to the people who keep me afloat, and to my wonderful customers whose purchases have allowed me to do what I love.

Namaste, and please hug someone today. Nobody gets the RDA of hugs anymore.
