Stained Glass Artist
My name is Michael Huffman
 My interest in glass began in 1985 after taking a beginning stained glass class thru a local community college.  I was hooked after the first class and spent my spare time making pieces learning  as much as I could and giving the pieces to family and friends. After several years of  taking intermediate and advance classes  in the copper foil and lead came technique  I felt I was ready for my first local craft/art show.  Received  good response and got my first commission. Mid 1989 my job in middle managment for a shipping company came to an end and by 1990 the Glass Gallery was established. The next 22 years were spent  creating custom art glass for residential and commercial clients throughout the Hampton Roads, VA region and state of Virginia and eastern North Carolina with a wide range of formats and project sizes.  The retail store closed in 2012 and moved to a home studio in Shawboro NC  where I continue to create  glass.
