Stained glass artisan
Thinking it would be a nice hobby for me, I was given a stained glass starter kit as a Christmas gift in 2000 by my husband. I don't think either of us knew how important and wonderful this hobby would become for me.
I took stained glass classes, attended seminars, and took still more classes in an attempt to learn more about this wonderful craft and to improve my skills. I still have mentors that I learn from; I find it exciting that there will always be more to learn, and skills to improve in this craft. Always striving to craft each box I make to hold a special memory or treasure, or a window panel to have a striking beauty and to give pleasure to the viewer. A stained glass window panel that has sunlight coming through the richly colored glass pieces can give such a positive emotion to your day. I don't think that I will ever tire of the sparkle and beauty and design possibilities of beveled glass. I believe that stained glass and beveled glass is truly timeless. I want to make something that my Etsy customers will treasure and enjoy for years to come.
As a result of my working and learning glass skills and techniques, I had lots of stained glass pieces in my home, and many were given as gifts. In the mid 2000's I discovered Etsy. I was so excited about finding all of the wonderful glass artisans, and seeing their amazing ideas for design and color. I never imagined I could be among them. In 2011 I took the big leap and decided that I too would join Etsy and create my own store. I worked to assemble an inventory of products, took pictures, wrote my story and product information. I took the store name of Moonglowroad Glass after the name of the country road we live on, then took a big deep breath and presented my work to the world via Etsy. With my successes from Etsy, I have been able to feed my need to handcraft beautiful glass items, and to sell them to help support my glass habit and my family. I love to meet new people and I have met some of the very nicest people on Etsy. I find such pleasure and excitement in the vast array of stained glass colors and types of glass and the possibilities of design every day. I am honored with each sale that someone finds my work to be just what they want to honor their lives.
Around the web
I have had a love affair with stained glass for as long as I can remember, the vast array of colors in the glass and styles of design are fascinating and soothing to my mind. I am always looking for new directions to explore.
Sara is my constant companion as I work. Always there as I work, she is a very important part of my every day.
It's constantly amazing to me how brightly colored glass joined together can be so delightful - such as a stained glass panel hanging in a window, or a customized panel to be installed in a bookcase or kitchen cabinet door. Stained glass is a beautiful medium to consecrate a memory or celebrate an event. It can be a way to have a respectful memorial for a loved one or pet who has passed. Stained glass boxes are wonderful presents for weddings, graduations, and religious celebrations. I always welcome custom orders. If you have something in mind that you'd like to have please ask!
I take a lot of pride in working with my customers to design meaningful stained glass items that gives them pleasure in their life and home. Contact me and let's talk about creating a handcrafted stained glass item just for you and your family.
