Art Glass for the 21st Century

Making an American tradition into a World Tradition

Welcome to Preston Studios.

The fall of 2016 will mark the 40th year of PRESTON STUDIOS – a long history of creating one-of-a-kind original collectible works of art in stained glass.  Most of the work by the studio continues the uniquely American tradition of placing art glass in the home as a lifestyle element, whether it be in lighting or in windows.  The majority of these original creations have been commissioned pieces, reflecting in some degree the tastes and desires of their owners. Preston works can be seen in such places as a private residence in Halifax, Canada or Tortola in the BVI, or even in Denmark. The studio continues to accept new orders.
