Delphi Featured Artisan

L.A. Glass Studio/Lidia Anderson has been featured on ArtFire
as the Delphi Featured Artisan for the month of January 2010.

Please take a moment to browse through my ArtFire Shop where you will find gifts for every occasion, including windows, sun catchers, Moravian Stars, new jewelry pendant collection, and much more.

My passion is designing and making glass which I have been happily creating for 30 years. All designs are original and my own unique expressions. Each piece is meticulously hand crafted in the "Tiffany" method of stained glass, also known as the copper foil technique.

I am a native of Sydney, Australia, and it was here that I began my formal education in art. In my second year of college I moved to the United States and received my B.F.A. from B.G.S.U. in Ohio. I spent the next 10 years as art director in the field of television. Recognizing the stresses of the advertising world, I took the opportunity to find other forms of artistic expression. My love of glass was born and I allowed this creative energy to guide me. What evolved were works of art that integrated into our more common understanding of functional living.

My larger body of work is represented by some of the finest art galleries in the nation.

I had the privilege to exhibit with the world renowned artist, Dale Chihuly and also completed a restoration of 18 stained glass windows at a chapel in Ohio.

I hope you enjoy my work as much as I enjoy creating for you.
