Nita Ward

Nita Ward (Studio #23) – 209 Falcon Avenue

Glass is my passion. I have always been a fan of stained glass. Starting at the age of seven, I searched churches and public buildings to study the beautiful colors and designs of stained glass. When I retired from CSULB in 2002, my husband gave me stained glass lessons at a studio in Seal Beach. I immediately made 10 windows for my home in the Frank Lloyd Wright style and then added other designs throughout our home. I can honestly say there is not much I would rather do than create a piece in glass. All aspects of glass starting with the design, the glass selection, and finally applying patinas are all enjoyable.

I have participated in various art and craft shows and venues in Los Angles/Orange Counties over the last 15 years. I have also displayed and sold my pieces at Made in Long Beach. My glass pieces have been purchased and taken to England, Australia, Brazil, and Mexico. I have designed and made many custom doors and windows over the years. I also have a few pieces for sale in an Etsy store at glassbynita.

My current obsession is making abstract faces on stands and tribal masks. Both allow and require me to “work outside the box” which always makes things more fun. It is also fun to introduce people to the many ways stained glass can be used to enhance life with color and whimsy!
