We're Heart's Desire Stained Glass, making glass art in the beautiful Texas Hill Country.

More Coming In…

We had another repair job come in:

This one’s another cabinet door that’s suffered some damage, as the pictures show. Several of the larger panels are cracked pretty badly, and some of the glass is missing. They’re curved, so it’ll be a bit more of a challenge to get them replaced than would be the case were the panels flat. But we’re equal to it–and to meeting your art glass needs!

Give us a call or drop us a line; let us see what we can do for you!

Business Is Booming

We’ve had a bevy of repair work come in recently. Take, for instance, this glass barber pole:

Several of the panels are cracked or missing, and some of the hardware needs tender loving care.

There are also these poor panels from a cabinet that fell from the wall:

Each has several pieces of glass cracked or shattered, and the lead that holds them in place is warped and bent. We’ll get all of it put back in order, though, on both the cabinet panels and the barber pole–and we can do the same for your art glass pieces! Give us a call or shoot us an email; we’d love to hear from you!

Slumping, Not Slacking

Kevin’s been recovering from a surgery, but he’s been keeping busy. Right now, the piece shown above is cooling in the kiln (which is taking some doing in the burgeoning summer of the Texas Hill Country), but when it’s done, it’ll be the kind of thing to last for years–in any weather!

If you’d like us to make something like this for you, drop us a line: 830-890-1509 or

We’re Still Going

We know we’ve been pretty quiet recently. It’s been because we’re keeping busy, like Kevin, here:

As you can see, he’s got another piece in progress. Every day, we do a little more to bring you the best art glass in the Hill Country.

See a piece that interests you? Drop us a line at 1-830-890-1509!

A Repair Job in the Making

We had a piece come in from a customer who found some of our older contact information. Repairs are underway–and we’ll be happy to work with you to fix your art glass! Fixing older pieces is something of a specialty for us, and we take care to match the color, texture, and framing for your needs.

If you have a piece that needs fixing, get in contact with us at our contact page or by phone at 830-890-1509!

An Apology

We regretfully note that we will not be able to show at the Kerr County Fair this year. We’d been looking forward to it, but our ongoing commitment to excellence meant we were not able to generate a large enough inventory to be able to give you the good things you deserve.

We appreciate your ongoing support and interest, and we look forward to showing you what we have to offer soon!

Since It’s That Time of Year…

…we’re getting ready for some football! (And other sports!)

We’ve started fusing glass in Texas college colors. If you’ve got a special request, drop us a line; we’ll see what we can do!

And, because it’s the Texas Hill Country, we can see about making high school glass, too!

Things Are Hopping…

…in our shop, thanks in part to this guy:

Kevin says the piece is approximately 20 inches across and will be fitted with a chain for hanging. The pieces are fixed in lead came that will be soldered to give the piece a durable structure. The glass is a mixture of opaque and translucent styles that will admit light so that the design leaps into the eye for years of beauty.

Unless it sells early, we’ll have it at the Kerr County Fair in October 2017–along with many others. And we hope to see you there, too!
