About

We still make stained glass in Appalachia!

I have a lifelong interest in stained glass, and am lucky enough to live within 75 miles of two of the only remaining stained glass makers in America, one of which is 110 years old and the oldest continuously-producing stained glass factory in the United States. West Virginia has been home to over 500 glass factories over the last hundred or so years but sadly, only a handful remain.

When I left a 9-to-5 job in 2001, I began to sell sheets of stained glass on eBay. One of my customers suggested I try cutting some of it into mosaic tiles, and the rest is history. I buy my glass directly from the factories. My shop currently occupies one of the bedrooms in my house. This is where my cutting table, computer, printer, and business files live. I enjoy regular visits from a wide variety of birds, and often see White-Tailed Deer right outside my window. (Oh, and half my basement is filled with big sheets of glass and literally tons of grout!)

When my love of purple collided with the realization that purple grout was not available in the USA, I knew I had to do something to fix that, so I started experimenting, and soon I was formulating and mixing my own custom grout colors. I now offer more grout colors by-the-pound than anyone else in the country, many of which you will not find anywhere else.

I love going to the glass factories, digging around the warehouses, talking to the workers and watching them do their magic. If you've never seen people make sheet glass or blown glass, you're missing out. It's absolutely fascinating! Here's how they make the iridescent glass I sell: There are a range of kilns on the factory floor, each containing a different color of glass. Workers use a long-handled iron dipper (six feet long or more!) to scoop molten glass out. They mix it together with pitchfork-like tools, and it looks like glowing Silly Putty. Then they send it through the rollers. When it comes out the other side, it looks like a glowing sheet of flat fire. A thin layer of vaporized metal is then sprayed onto one side of the glass and it is sent to the annealing chamber to cool. This awesome glass is highly iridescent, and full of fire and shimmering rainbows. Sand + fire = MAGIC!

    I live in West Virginia, which has a rich glassmaking heritage. I began my business by selling mosaic tiles I hand-cut from locally produced stained glass. I added a line of grout, and now have the largest selection of grout by-the-pound in the US.
