J Robert Stevens grew up mesmerized by the colors on the walls and floor from the light streaming through church windows. In 1988, he began his studies of stained glass fabrication techniques. He currently works out of his studio in Jonesboro Georgia.
“While I appreciate the craftsmanship found in 800 year old medieval glass and the innovations of Tiffany and LaFarge, I am drawn to the post-WWII work of Gerhard Richter and works by Sylvia Laks and Judson Studios. Even when creating a piece for a traditional setting, I like to give a fresh and impactful turn to the work.”
