Nancy Weisser has been working with glass for nearly 40 years. She owned and operated a home based stained glass commission business for 12 years before opening the store location in Kensington in 1993. In 1985 her interest in glass turned to a new and emerging art form - kiln formed glass, a broad group of techniques that includes fusing, slumping and casting. Nancy has trained with many renowned glass artists over the years, and has been teaching the art of glass for nearly thirty years. Even though she stays busy with running the store and an intense teaching schedule she continues to create, unique and exciting works of art in glass.
