About Laura Goff Designs, Stained Glass Studio

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 design and color 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.
