I'm Stacie, aka Forest City Stained Glass, based out of London, Ontario, and the second in my family to make glass. The first was my Grandpa Jack, pictured below, who practiced the craft for many years before he passed in the 90s. I've carried one of his suncatchers (below) with me for as long as I can remember, and it's the reason I found glass in 2015. I saw it pass by in the "discover" thread of my Instagram feed, not realizing my grandpa initially worked from previously published glass patterns. This piqued my curiosity about the process, and eventually led me to pursue glass in earnest.
I am so grateful for this "nudge" that has now become my passion, and consider each piece I make a small collaboration with my grandpa. I hope you enjoy the site, and appreciate your interest!
