Cheryl Stanford and Joe Novotny's Profile
I absolutely LOVE all of the different aspects of creating and putting together a stained glass art piece. From the sound of cutting the glass, to foiling or leading to soldering to framing and watching the piece come together with an explosion of color. So many stages to complete before the finished product emerges. I find it peaceful to work with colored glass.
My love of vivid color and vintage design influences my project design as well as my garden and love of nature. I love antiques as well as modern art and abstracts. My style is quite eclectic. Being a realtor enabled me to view hundreds of Chicago Bungalows and appreciate the early 1900's stained glass era.
Stanford Glass Shop has become so busy with orders that my husband, Joe was able to quit his job and work full time with the business creating stained glass windows! I do the design…
