Stained Glass Love

About Stained Glass Love

I am always available for commissions/ custom pieces! Contact me to make some glass magic together.

Melissa Leuschel (32), originally from Florida, has been drawn to expressing herself through art since childhood. While studying education at the University of Central Florida, she was mesmerized by a giant stained glass installation in the University library. This sparked a fascination and appreciation of art glass, and she started studying stained glass after she completed obtaining her degrees in English and Education. After spending years in the Middle East and China as an educational consultant, she now uses inspiration from her time abroad and the world around her to create her own unique modern stained glass art pieces in her studio in Tucson, AZ. While she is still developing her style, her use of traditional arches as a frame for many of her works nods to a respect of the origins of the craft. A big motivation for Melissa in her art is her dedication to social justice/ activism and she has also partnered with multiple artists to create collaborative pieces to challenge herself as an artist and explore multiple techniques through expression in stained glass.

About the Process

This is the area in my studio where I start the process of creating a glass piece. I work with a client to create a design that they love and then select glass that would fit with their vision. I show the client how the glass will look in the design with different lights (lightbox is featured on the far left), then cut the glass on the table.
