Speckled fish swim languidly through turquoise-blue water beneath an orange sky. Nearby, a pair of white cranes stretch their long necks toward the sun, and sea turtles glide past fronds of kelp looking for their lost keys. But this isn't an exotic animal sanctuary—rather, these natural scenes are captured in gleaming stained glass. The charming images are the work of the craftsmen at D & L Art Glass, a studio specializing in stained and leaded panes. They shape artistic pieces to adorn windows or doors, form colorful pendants, and etch eye-catching patterns into metal or stone surfaces. Instead of keeping their crystalline knowledge to themselves, the experts instruct others in the glass arts during classes and multiday workshops.
