Whether an unique heirloom piece for display, or tasteful remodeling additions such as windows, doors, transoms, sidelights, cabinet doors, etc., for your home, office, or church, we are here to help.  By gathering information from you for the design, to the actual finished product, we listen and produce.  Whether it be etching, copper foil, lead came, glass carving, or painting, we do it all according to your stipulations.  Our goal is to make your glass art experience an unlimited one in design, quality, and pride!
