Alta Pacific Stained Glass
Alta Pacific Stained Glass – Carolyn and Gordon Otsen have been working together as artisans for most of their lives. In the 1980’s, after studying and training with various professionals, they started selling Stained Glass to galleries, boutiques, and gift shops. They have shown their work at hundreds of juried Art Festivals throughout the country, and have received many awards. They have authored two Stained Glass instruction books featuring their unique 3-dimensional houses.
Each of their Stained Glass Art pieces is created in their small in-home studio on the coast of Oregon with great concern for the quality and beauty of their work. After the inspiration and design processes are completed, the glass is selected for color and quality. It is then painstakingly cut and ground by hand until all the pieces fit together perfectly. Every piece of glass is individually wrapped with copper foil and soldered together, then plated and polished. These heirloom quality creations are made to last for generations.
