Window on the World

This Artfire shop, PetsInGlass, transforms simple pieces of colored glass into heirloom quality artworks to be passed down for generations. Inspired by her genuine love for animals, Joan has focused her stained glass artistry on dogs. Whether displayed on a wall or hung in a window, these incredible works of art make an eye-catching focal point for any room. When someone is doing exactly what they are meant to do, it is very evident in their work, and Joan’s work is magnificent!

Whether mosaics, bevel clusters, etched or dichroic glass designs, Joan’s full range of glass working abilities can be found on her website. I really like the green parrot and the Celtic knot. If you have a few minutes and would like to see pet pictures transformed into remarkable stained glass artworks, check out her YouTube video. The picture she is using for her bio is Eric, and Elizabeth the cat is in the banner. A portion of every stained glass sale is donated to one of two non-profit organizations: The Magic Bullet Fund or Blue Ridge Assistance Dogs.

Joan masterfully pieces her creations in North Carolina and ships to the United States and Canada. She has a Facebook fan page, where newly completed pieces will pop up. If you would like a beloved pet immortalized, or if you are interested in a non-pet custom piece, please contact Joan, she is ready to brighten your window on the world.
