We carry a fairly large collection of stained glass items - from small, whimsical pieces to large hangings to 3-dimensional "containers". We will be adding some of these items to our online store in the near future.
"When I started planning for retirement, I decided I needed to try a few new hobbies to ensure I would keep busy. After 30+ years as a professional in technology, I needed a change of pace. I had often thought of learning the art of stained glass, so chose that to be my first class. That was quite a few years ago now, and I have never wanted to try anything else. My love of glass borders on obsession. The hundreds of variations in texture and color fascinate me.
"As my fellow glass artists know, once you have given every member of your family,(including distant third cousins), a gift of your work and you have every available space in your home covered, you need to think about selling your art. It is the only way I can justify continually buying new glass.
"I joined the Yaquina Art Center a month after moving to Oregon in 2006 and have enjoyed the camaraderie of the group in addition to the opportunity to show and sell my work. I participate in local craft shows and sometimes do the Newport Farmer's market. My work can also be seen at the Green Gables Café and Halcyon in Nye Beach, and Ocean Beaches Glassblowing in Seal Rock."
