Ihad the distinct pleasure to meet stained glass artist Lawrence Frey (pronounced Fry) and readily accepted his invitation to tour his company, the Appalachian Stained Glass Studio, In Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania. It is here that he designs and builds custom stained glass works for everything from apartments to multimillion-dollar homes. He creates stained glass panels ranging from smaller leaded glass for transoms and doors to very large-scale multi-panel installations for vast spans of windows. Using light as his canvas, Frey’s designs blend his fresh and unique style with glass techniques eons old to create works of art.
The studio is located just off the beaten path surrounded by thick forests of hemlock, native rhododendron and fern providing a peaceful setting where he creates his works.
Frey was recently commissioned to design and install two large 6’ arching glass-works high in the gable of a log home. After careful study of the house and property and listening to the homeowners he began. His concept was that the window needed to be not a window but rather a transition that pulls together and reflects on the natural elements of the home, its surroundings and the owner’s lifestyle while providing an airy feeling of light and color.
