Stained Glass News

Lately opportunity to gather in person with people has been limited. For artists that means we can’t get together with our “tribe” who speak the same language. Workshops to help us perfect our craft have been limited for the most part to virtual learning.

Stained Glass News is a circular which can help stained glass enthusiasts stay in tune with the industry. New products for crafting stained glass, valuable resources for artists in the industry and interesting feature articles for enthusiasts are in this publication.

Build community with other artists interested in the craft of stained glass- making by subscribing. Here is some information.

It will be a happy day when artists everywhere can come out of their studios and more freely attend workshops and sell their wares at farmers markets and crafts fairs. We like the personal interaction with our customers. It gives us an opportunity for feedback on what we create for you!

Finding the Bright Spot

Happy New Year!  We at MZ Glassworks are thrilled to usher in a New Year. Although last year was tough, the take-away is we all became more resilient and flexible and perhaps many of us learned what’s really important.

If you can say “Yes!” to any of those statements, congratulations! You are one step closer to becoming a wise old owl. For this reason, today our featured products are our stained glass and fused glass owls.

These owls are a good gift to anyone who came through 2020  no worse for the wear.

Come and Get ‘Em

This Saturday, December 19th, four days from now MZ Glassworks will be at the Carroll County Agriculture Center in Westminster, MD from 8am to 1pm. Like everyone else, our opportunities for our buyers to see our works up close have been limited due to the pandemic. So this is the perfect time to see all the new products we’ve created over the past year! So come on out, but wear your mask for everyone’s health safety!

You can also shop from this website. Head on over to our portfolio pages!

MERRY CHRISTMAS and BEST WISHES for 2021!! We ship year round so keep us in mind when you are looking for a special gift anytime throughout the year. And we love working with our clients on commissioned projects!

Creative Involvement

There’s something really special about receiving a handcrafted gift from a child. Many a “hope chest” gets stuffed with drawings and other elementary school art projects.

Since most kids are spending more time at home, it’s a perfect time to involve your kids with simple art projects during the Advent season. Here are a few examples and instructions for a multitude of arts and crafts projects are easily accessible on the internet. Get the whole family iinvolved.


Advent Features

Happy 1st day of Advent! Today we will be featuring seasonally appropriate gifts.

We at MZ Glassworks can think of no better holiday reminder to give to a Pastor or person in your congregation who means something special than an angel or shepherd stained glass light catcher.

Angels symbolize devotion, trust, faith and love. All qualities found in a meaningful friendship.  Shepherds symbolize one who watches over, guides or leads the way.

Wouldn’t you feel good if someone gifted you with a token of a kind gift such as these?

Growing Collections

Isn’t it fun to pull out your Christmas decorations every year? In our family as we unpack the boxes we like remembering who and where the tree ornament and other Christmas decorations came from. We can often associate a specific ornament with a year or event.

Our suncatchers are great gifts for office parties and a small way to say to your friends “I REMEMBERED YOUR KINDNESS TO ME. HAPPY HOLIDAYS!”

MZ Glassworks Collection of Christmas stained glass products is growing every year! We invite you to grow your collection of holiday ornaments and decorations along with us! No fear of running out of new stained glass to buy to hang on your tree or decorate your home. In fact, we have so many Christmas/winter themed products, we just set up a NEW CHRISTMAS PORTFOLIO on this website. So leap on over to the Christmas portfolio and check it out.

Don’t have any of our Christmas ornaments? This is the perfect year to begin collecting! Cheers!!

“The traditions of Christmas are lasting because they are made of love!”

 

Holiday Preparedness

Be a little naughty. Save Santa a trip.”

 

On-line buying means you can order at any time of day or night through a website!  You don’t have to wait for Santa to bring it. MZ Glassworks would be happy to fill your Christmas orders for beautifully handcrafted stained glass items from our inventory. Head on over to our portfolios of products posted on this website. At the end of this post, we’ve added our contact form for your convenience, so feel free to get in touch.

Prefer seeing products in person? We will be at the  Carroll County Agricultural Center in Westminster, Maryland on December 19 from 8am to 2 pm. We will be pulling out all the stops with a huge varied of stained glass products –  sun catchers, windchimes, lanterns, panels and more!

Look forward to getting out of the studio. See you then!

Return next week, and we will have posted some photos of special seasonal offerings for Christmas.

 

Enhancing Entrances

 

What happens when you take a chance and step out of the box into a custom look? The homeowner featured below has taken what would be a nothing special entryway and made it say WOW with the addition of stained glass in the panes of the door! Then they really kicked it up a notch by adding coordinating tiles on the walkway. 

It is now one sensational entrance to come home to.  Beautiful as it is welcoming. Can we help you with a transom or panel for your door?

MZ Glassworks loves custom work and we have a portfolio of commissioned projects.  There are also some seasonally hot items we just added to the website. So while you’re on the website, check out all of our portfolios!

 

 

Walls of Glass

There may be plenty of restrictions on worldwide travel right now, but that does not mean we can not visit other places through armchair travel!

Today MZ Glassworks would like to take you to Barcelona, Spain. I think you will agree this stained glass is a beautiful sight to behold. A barrier of beauty!

Barcelona, Spain.
