Custom Decorative Glass for a Private Residence

The interior of the beautiful home was designed by Lori Jolin Interiors.  Lori worked with Studio GlassWorks to provide the custom glass for the home including textured cabinet glass, mirrors, shower enclosures, kiln-formed pool, sauna and bath doors, glass shelving, beveled and stained glass overlay door inserts for the master bedroom, one way mirrors overlooking the pool, black arch top mirror above the fireplace, and a framed hand-made antique mirror for a fabulous cast angel art piece.  The result is a beautiful one-of-a-kind home set in the hilly countryside of southwestern Wisconsin.

Award Winning Custom Art Glass Provides Beauty and Energy Savings

Award Winning Custom Art Glass Provides Beauty and Energy Savings

Bethany Lutheran Church in Ft. Atkinson went through a complete design transformation to update the interior of the church in 2007. All interior furnishings as well as new windows were included in the transformation.

The old windows included panels of spun colored fiberglass material that was terribly outdated. Studio GlassWorks worked with Fort Atkinson Glass & Mirror to create new windows that would provide for energy efficiency and UV protection, which was real important to the church. All materials and installation methods were designed specifically to address these concerns. The overall results have been dramatic. The church has experienced energy savings and increased comfort of the congregation due to the triple panel installation process as well as the 99% UV protection offered by the decorative glass panels.

The Stained Glass Overlay art panels were built with a custom design depicting a storyline of significant events in the Bible including the life of Jesus Christ in the main worship area as well as a series of second story windows with angels from above looking down upon the congregation. Entrance doors as well as a back-lighted exterior wall panel including the Church’s name were also completed.

Wisconsin Historical Society Reading Room


Studio GlassWorks replaced the ceiling glass as part of the Wisconsin Historical Society Reading Room restoration project. The glass was hand created with the same tradition and methods used by European Artisans in past centuries. Designs were created using photographs of the original glass designs.

WHS RR Close-up of side panelThe restoration project was submitted by Isthmus Architecture, and won the 2011 AIA Wisconsin Design Award for excellence. The annual design award places emphasis on public and education structures, as well as projects that honor historic buildings. The elegant reading room was transformed into a 21st-century study center while retaining its turn-of-the-20th-century character.

The jurors stated in their collective comments that “our favorite part is the restoration of the skylights and the ceiling. The care taken with those skylights was extraordinary – it’s a spectacular ceiling.”

A note about the Wisconsin Historical Society Building – it is the oldest continually operated state building in Wisconsin.

Studio GlassWorks combined efforts with KD-Glass, Findorff and Isthmus Architects on this restoration project for the Wisconsin Historical Society.
