Dea Archbold is an experienced kiln fired glass painting artist
with skills in all stages of leaded and foiled glass window construction,glass fusing, window restoration and commission work.
Her home studio is capable of all stages of stained glass window production with its focus on kiln fired glass painting. There are two kilns on site.The techniques are centuries old but the designs and style are non-traditional.
For the artist, this process is about the love of painting
and the inclination to depict things tangible in relation to birds.
Their world overlaps our world, sharing similar spaces, literally and symbolically.
Dea is a descendant from the original german Palatines who settled Germantown in 1710. After spending time in Warwick NY and NJ, doing subcontracting work for a number of glass studios and raising a family, she returned to this area in 2004.
