DANIEL MAHER STAINED GLASS
Founded in 1989, The Daniel Maher Stained Glass Studio's works serve "as a testament to both his diverse aesthetic interests and his firm roots in the traditions of the stained glass craft*."
The seemingly random variety of styles and images in my work
are all rooted firmly in my mission to explore the textural movement inherent
in glass. Glass is everywhere -- reflecting,
bending, splitting and projecting light and patterns.
In each window, I try to incorporate something in image or
material that will accelerate my evolution as an artist and extinguish the
notion of stained glass as a “traditional” art form. I continue to work in all the traditional
styles of stained glass but I’m expanding the use of found objects and hand-blown
objects that I create myself.
In the past, my business was a full-service studio, not only
designing and fabricating stained glass works but also restoring, repairing and
creating limited edition gift panels and windows. Currently, my focus is on individual commission
works only as I am no longer repairing or restoring stained glass windows.
