Brian Western of Western Art Glass has been cutting glass and applying band-aids since 1978, and has been a part of etsy since January 2007 selling his gorgeous glass. It all started with the help of his older brother and mentor. Now his stained-glass sun catchers light up windows and add a fun, glowing organic feel to your home.
The most astonishing part is that Brian works without any of the modern luxuries available to glass artists these days. Everything is done by hand with a Fletcher 07 glass cutter and a couple of grozing pliers. His materials of choice? Glass, lead, copper foil, copper tubing, solder, wires, and duck eggs.
This Minnesota man... a self-proclaimed “non-reformed Hobbit” loves being able to slink around in the background.... but his eye-catching work calls for attention.
