At the age of 70, my Grandfather, Patsy Difilippantonio decided it was time for a new hobby. He took several stained glass classes and setup a small stained glass shop in his basement where he began creating beautiful stained glass. One day while visiting him, he showed me his new hobby and some of his creations. Within 1/2 an hour, I was hooked on stained glass.
I too took several classes at a local college and began working with glass as a hobby. Soon, I had my first studio in my home in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. My first stained glass instructor was a stained glass guru by the name of Sam Schatz.
At that time, Sam was making the stars for the Moravian Book Store located in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Of course, I had Sam show me how to make these beautiful stars and soon I was making and selling stars.
I began selling my stained glass creations (Moravian Stars, Candle Holders, Angels, Suncatchers, Panels, etc.) at local craft shows and fairs in and around Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.
My love for stained glass has evolved into Glass Art by Joe Stained Glass Studio, LLC. As a full service studio, we can create a custom piece for that special person or perform repairs on existing pieces.
If you'd like to discuss a custom piece or are interested in one of our stars, please contact us via email.
