October 2017 Associate Spotlight – Preston Studios

John Emery of Preston Studios has been a member of the HBCA of Brevard for over 10 years and in business for 41!

Preston Studios has a long history of creating one-of-a-kind original collectible works of art in stained glass. Most of the work by the studio continues the uniquely American tradition of placing art glass in the home as a lifestyle element, whether it be in lighting or in windows.

The majority of these original creations have been commissioned pieces, reflecting in some degree the tastes and desires of their owners. The studio continues to accept new commissions today.

John essentially taught himself as a hobbyist in stained glass, creating new and original designs in lamps from the very start.
