“This was the best present ever. After I commissioned John to do Harley’s portrait we found out his cancer had returned after 4 1/2 years of remission. Harley finished his 4 weeks of radiation on Dec 23 2016. All through the progress, John wished good thoughts and prayer for our boy. My wife opened her gift early Christmas morning with Harley at her feet. There were many tears of joy as John had captured all of Harley’s personality in glass for us to enjoy for many years to come.”      T.W., McDonough, GA

“I received the beautiful replication of a diesel locomotive. The attention to detail and the painstaking craftsmanship of Glass House Art shows through and
through. It has become a treasured part of my railroad collection.”       E.V., Roswell, GA

“The stained glass window, based on photos of my beloved cat Raji, is absolutely breathtaking. I gasped when I took it out of its (very carefully packed) box. Not only is it incredibly beautiful, but I was so touched and delighted by the thoughtful surprise addition of an actual pet tag. John and Jodi were always accessible during the process, and took extra care to get it right. They even went out of their way to honor my request to use materials that would make it possible for me to safely keep the window outdoors. Ironically, it’s so stunning and priceless that I’ve decided to keep it inside my house. It wasn’t until I hung the stained glass that I realized how magical it would be. The variations that take place with the changing light are extraordinary. There’s a certain time of day which I now call “The Golden Hour” where the illumination is so spectacular that it seems to bring Raji to life. While all pet loss is unbearable, this was a particularly heartbreaking situation that I was still struggling with after two years. I truly believe that this exquisite window – infused with the artists’ compassion and connection to Raji – is helping me heal from this loss. I’m finally able to experience joy when I see Raji’s image, especially when he’s glowing with light.”       P.G., Santa Barbara, CA

“I just received the order a few days ago and I have to say, between the quick shipping and incredible packing, not to mention the piece you did is STUNNING and even more beautiful in person than in pictures- you are a pleasure to work with. This is a gift for a 13 year old girl I have known since she was 2, and she is getting her Bat Mitzvah this weekend. She is VERY artisiic and loves purple, so I’m hoping this is the best gift for her. Your work is so beautiful, you clearly care deeply, about what you do. Keep doing what you are doing and thank you so much!”       S.A., Beverly Hills, CA

“I have an awkwardly placed window in the front of my house. John made a window that provides privacy and made an ordinary window extraordinary by matching the style and design of the glass in my front door. The workmanship is exceptional. His service and professionalism are second to none. I highly recommend John and Glass House Art, LLC.”       M.T., Peachtree Corners, Georgia

“When I decided to have my sister’s beloved “Reya” memorialized in her favorite medium of stained glass, I had no idea it would be so true to life and turn out so beautiful! My whole experience with Glass House Art has been phenomenal! If I based my opinion solely on the finished product, it would have to be exceptional. I mean, just look at Reya, the likeness is scary good! The overall service my sister and I received from these wonderfully talented artists puts them over the top. They truly are invested in their projects. John & Jodi took a personal interest in the project along with lots of love and painstaking time!! It was just as important to them as it was to me that Reya’s spirit be captured in the piece. They maintained contact with me throughout the process and provided me with visuals along the way. I HIGHLY recommend them to anyone looking for that special piece of art or replication of a pet, you won’t be disappointed!!”       J.O., Spokane, WA

“We commissioned Glass House Art to create a portrait of our beloved dog, Buddy, from a photo of him lying in his favorite position. The result was amazing, both as a beautiful work of art and as a wonderful memory. Doing business with Glass House Art was just as great—their prices are very reasonable and the piece came when promised and carefully packaged. We can recommend them without any reservation whatsoever!”       G.A., Lincolnshire, Illinois
