Artisans at Glassworks, have a combined 40 years of designing
and producing Art glass for Residential homes throughout North
America. We have pieces as far away as Hawaii, and Conneticut.
have always lived by the motto Never say No, and
sometimes this gets us in trouble, but always it pushes us
into areas we have never been before, and this excites us.
From someone asking for a Skylight, which they would like
to look like the Solar System, which got us into Air Brush
Painting, to someone with a very large house, with lots of
windows, wanting it to look like something Frank Lloyd Wright
would have built, to someone asking us to design a Front entry,
after the style of Green & Green.
are 3 different designers that work with, or for Glassworks,
so it gives us a good cross section of design ideas. But,
we like to say to the customer, that they actually design
their work, we just do the drawing.
would have to say, that our specialty has become copying,
or complimenting the works of Frank Lloyd Wright, as we have
now done 100s of panels in this style. The customer
with the large house, which we filled with Art glass panels,
also built a Summer house, which we also filled with the same
style of panels. From there, with other clients, we have explored
other avenues and areas of his work, and as he was the pioneer
of the Prairie Style house, and the general trend in housing
these days is along those lines, it is easy to fit his design
concepts in most homes.
as we are also an Insulated glass manufacturer, most of the
panels we build, are Triple sealed between Clear glass, to
give the insulating factor, and also to protect and preserve
the Art glass for many years to come.
also do a lot of Sand Carved glass panels, anything from Sidelites
for beside the Front Entry, to a Feature piece above the Ensuite
tub, to Free standing sculptures, which some of the time we
will Edge light to really make the Art work stand out. Over
the years, we have become known for our Landscape designs.
pride ourselves on the quality of our work, and will not let
a piece leave our shop until we are satisfied that it would
be a piece that we would proudly display in our own homes.
if you are thinking about incorporating some Art glass in
your next custom home, or have an existing window that you
think might look good with some Art work in it, ie: A window
above your big soaker tub, Sidelights or a Transom Above your
Front Entry, Piano windows on either side of your Fire place,
