Stained Glass Art Created by Toni



Toni has been working with stained glass for 18 years. Starting with stepping stones I have grown my skills to create large and small stained glass windows, hanging stained glass panels, tables, table and night lights, and garden art. I am able to take your design idea and make an original stained glass pattern that is uniquely yours. Contact me at tonig@q.com to talk about your idea for a stained glass project.
