Blog page for Classy Glass and Fineries

A blog for folks who are just crazy about glass: Stained glass, Fused glass, glass engraving, recycled glass, etc.

This site is all about the joy of working with glass in all forms, except maybe glass blowing…but I’m open.

My name is JoAnne Kendrick and after a long hiatus from stained glass, I came back. I bought a kiln and started fusing glass. I had a Dremel and started engraving glass. I collected bottles and started cutting them. But, I am not an artist. This blog is to share what I have tried, what has failed, what has succeeded and how I am trying to start a business with it all. I’d sure love to interact with others trying to do the same. Let’s exchange ideas and experiences.
