Barbara began working with glass over 25 years ago. Her great-great grandfather was a master glassblower in the 1800′s. Ed is a master glazier, stained glass artist and glass blower. He began working in the field over 30 years ago. Together Barbara & Ed Streeter own Conway Glass Studio where they create blown glass artwork at an electric glass furnace. Their handcrafted glass is made using age-old traditional glass blowing techniques and each piece is one-of-a-kind. Here are some examples of Barbara & Ed’s work:
