The Glass Rose


THE GLASS ROSE (official name is La Rosa de Cristal) is a professional stained glass studio located in the Colonial village of La Antigua Guatemala, Guatemala.


I make stained glass projects ranging from small "sun catchers" and three dimensional objects to lamps, windows, and door panels.


Most pieces are made using the copper foil (Tiffany) technique. Large panels, windows and door panels are made using the "leaded glass" technique. I have been working with stained glass for over 30 years and have done work in the United States as well as in Guatemala.


You can view a few sample pieces on the "Gallery" page. I will be adding images as work is completed.


At present, THE GLASS ROSE is a one man (me) operation. I am now training an assistant who will be helping me in various stages of fabricating projects.


On the "Process" page you can see the various stages of work that have to be done to make a stained glass project so you can understand why the projects take so much time and cost what they do. I would welcome the opportunity to work with you to create a special piece that you will enjoy displaying in your home or business.

I use glass from Spectrum Glass almost exclusively in my projects.
