Glass - Stained glass

I love glass, crystal, natural stones and all the colors and sensations they invoke. When my oldest went to college, I took time to learn how to work with glass in the tiffany style of copper foiling. It was something I always dreamed of doing. That's why I named the studio Glass Dreams by Marlene.

I wanted to make panels and lamps for my home and family. But my hobby went crazy! My friends convinced me to jury for art shows. It is so fun! I met so many nice people. So my next step was to become a member with jury status of the Louisville Artisans Guild. I started making commission pieces for individuals homes and awards for organizations, which is great fun too! I love all the possibilities that working with glass stir inside me. From three dimensional, flat bright panels, suttle traditional pieces, stepping stones and lanterns for my yard and now pieces to wear. I still enjoy the art shows and my work can also be found in multiple galleries in Louisville and East Kentucky.

I have found it is never to late to do something you love. I continue to benefit and grow with my craft and so does my family and friends. I hope you enjoy the piece you selected as much as I enjoyed creating it!
