Featured Etsian Artist~The Quarry Art Studio


I love this hand painted glass! I am especially impressed by the lit up photos. The hand painted glass candle holders look so calming and inviting.

Which is your favorite?

"I love, love (did I mention *love*?) anything and everything involving art. I grew up doing traditional-type drawings using pen, pencil, or even pastels. When I would get to be a particularly pesky child my mom would send me outside to draw something. Oh, and draw I did. And not just draw, but CREATE. I once tried to make my own tree house using a pile of twigs and pocket knife. Let's just say it didn't go well. Anyway, I digress."

"As I said I've always been more into drawing with pencil or pastels, but recently took a shine in a big way to painting. There's just something about it that seems so polished... finished... professional... I love it! Also, maybe this comes from growing up in the rural-esque life, but I like art that has some kind of practical function. Paintings are fine, I even have a few in my shop, but I like to center around something that also serves a purpose. "

"Where form meets function. Makes me feel all warm and toasty."


  1. Where do you find these shops?! OK - I know - they are all on Etsy. LOL What an amazing shop - I love glass! It doesn't like me though, tends to break when I'm to close.
    Yellow is one of my favorite colors, this is beautiful:

  2. Beautiful glass work!! I love reading your blog posts~ they're always so interesting!

  3. Lovely! Especially those pretty pink tea cups!

  4. Thanks so much, everyone for your nice words! :) And thank you so so SO much for the feature!!


  5. These are gorgeous!! I adore stained glass and this looks like an inexpensive sometimes-alternative. Such a great idea!!:)
    -I wish that in the interview the artist had talked more about the art itself, that would have been nice.
