Architectural Glassarts - Who We Are...
Rod Scott, owner
Rod Scott has been working in glass for more years than he's willing to admit. He is project liaison and lead designer for custom stained glass and church commissions. Rod prepares the designs for approval, estimates budgets with a variety of options for your custom glass, and oversees the smooth installation through to the finish. Rod's attention to detail, knowledge of stained glass construction, history and installation, as well as great people skills and communication make him the first choice for any stained glass job.
Andrew leads quality control at Architectural Glassarts. Each window that passes through the studio must be inspected and live up to Andrew's rigorous standards for construction (especially the soldering) and reinforcement. Andrew is our lead installer, as he loves the "monkey bars" (otherwise known as scaffolding).
Carrie is the resident expert on fused glass and mosaic projects. She's got several years teaching experience and travels internationally to teach in glass studios and at national conferences, including the Glass Craft & Bead Expo in Las Vegas, NV and the annual American Mosaic Summit which changes venues yearly. We're lucky she chose to come back to Lincoln and share her knowledge with us!
Matt's creativity, problem solving skills, stained glass knowledge and people skills make him every student's favorite mentor. When he's not drawing up patterns, cleaning windows or painting, you can find him outside serenading passerbys on his guitar or blowing the biggest bubbles in South Lincoln!
Allison is our student turned employee. Armed with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the Kansas City Art Institute, Allison took to stained glass like a fish to water. Allie is multi-talented, using her graphics design background to draw up cartoons for windows, painting on glass, and helping out in the classroom. When she's not around the studio, she's making and selling her own artwork (kaleidoscopes, glass panels, and fiber art) in shows and various galleries/shops around the United States.
