Hi, I'm Monicia
, owner of Works Of Glass. 
As owner of the shop, I have a hand in everything. Absolutely everything! 
I dream glass.
I dream about soldering.
I dream about creating beautiful pieces for you. I have several employees to help me carry out my ideas and we all work in harmony as a team.

This is Linda. Manager of the Soldering Team. She started out taking our classes and then she just got adopted in to the 'family' She is the one who thinks 'outside the box' in the soldering room. She has been with me for years! I have yet to scare her with a soldering project!

Introducing Todd. He has worked with Randy, and will now be on his own in the Lead Room. He has been working with stained glass for 2 years. He collects Hot Wheels and other hobbies are photography and drawing. 

Meet Barb. She took classes from us in 1997 and has just taken off from there. She has worked for me for years as a solderer. Barb likes to paint using many mediums, she makes jewelry and loves to create stained glass with teeny tiny pieces! She lives in Arizona in the winter and works for us part time when she is up North.

Meet Jodi. Jodi worked for Gustafson Glass 22 years ago. I am blessed to have a former Gustafson Glass employee, but I am also blessed to have all my employees!
It ook her about 45 seconds to remember how to run the foiling machine, great at burnishing and LOVES to grind glass
Welcome Jodi!!!
