Margaret Kirk-Thornton About
In the 1980's, while seeking a distraction from a period of personal turmoil, I was introduced to stained glass as a hobby. I soon wanted to take it beyond that level and explore it as an art form. I continued to work with stained glass as time permitted while teaching, working part-time, attending graduate school and taking on the role of care-giver for my aging, legal-blind mother.
Now retired from teaching, I have combined my artistic expression and a passion for glass, forming them into a business. Splendor in the Glass is an artist's studio, not a workshop cranking out mass-produced crafts from pattern books. The glass and related materials are the media I use to create pieces of art. I continue to push the limits of glass as an artistic medium, by exploring unique configurations and incorporating materials beyond the confines of the expected. The works resulting from these explorations and personal expressions will be made available for sale, but the focus of the business will be commissioned works for individual clients.
