Stained Glass Artist & Innovator
Cindy Murphy is an experienced stained glass artist, who FOUNDED the art of stained glass on stone - indoor creations to be enjoyed daily throughout the home and outdoor, weatherproof translation of traditional stained-glass, which can go anywhere!
Starting her training over 40 years ago, Cindy spent the first 3 decades of her stained-glass career creating traditional stained glass artwork, but quickly became frustrated with the very limited places to install them (windows only). Also, she was concerned with breathing in the fumes of soldering and the detailed grinding of glass was frustrating her. She realized that as beautiful as stained glass creations were, their fragility was drastically reducing how they could be enjoyed.
So, she began innovating and quickly discovered the idea of embedding stained-glass onto large stones, to increase their versatility. Unfortunately, the usual materials wouldn't hold up to the weather/elements, so Cindy searched high and low for a product that would balance weather resistance, with aesthetics & durability. Many iterations later, Cindy has now created a product that lasts for decades with minimal attention , in even the roughest weather, allowing artists & connoisseurs to enjoy these works of art anywhere.
As much as Cindy loves creating her own art, her core passion has evolved into helping others discover the beauty & versatility of Stained-Glass on stone. Her ability to convey these methods to others has become a passion, to reach as many people as she can, to teach them her traits.
