Hello! I'm Laura Goff Parham, a stained glass artist in Knoxville, Tennessee. If you're looking to adds some color and light to your home, business or church, I'd love to help you.
I work in leaded glass, beveled glass, stained glass, painted glass, and etched glass which is also called sandblasted glass. It's my passion to create beautiful pieces of art in all different shapes, sizes and colors.
I'm always pushing myself to create beautiful pieces of art that will withstand the test of time. I always strive to do my best work for my clients.
I always wanted to be an artist. My grandmother was the first person to spark my love of colored light - she would place jars of colored water around the house so they'd catch the sunlight, casting pretty patterns on the walls and floor.
I earned my bachelor's degree in art history form the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, then went to Europe to immerse myself in art and architecture. It was there that I fell in love with stained glass and first realized it was my calling in life.
Today, I still study stained glass constantly. if I see a church with beautiful stained glass windows, I will often ask if I can photograph them. I never duplicate the work I see, but I study them for inspiration in my own work.
I am fascinated by the way artists use cuts and colors to achieve depth, distance or contrast. I enjoy the challenge of working with glass and I am always thrilled with the beauty of the finished piece.
