About Us


The Phoenix Studio was established in the Mariners Church above the Old Port Tavern, during the revival of the Old Port area of Portland, ME in 1976. There was a fire in the shop below and the studio was lost. After relocating to the base of Munjoy Hill, a car parked in an alley caught fire, which again claimed the studio. We are now located at 630 Forest Ave in the historic Woodfords section of Portland. We have been fire-free since 1988.

We are a family owned and operated business, now, with two generations of experience. Together the studio has over 100 years experience creating and restoring fine art glass.

We practice time tested methods fused with the new technologies of today to protect and produce our glass treasures.

At Phoenix Studio we believe that all existing stained and leaded glass works are the treasures of our heritage and that they must be preserved for many generations to come. That is why we strive for excellence for every project we work on. Education, quality craftsmanship, and integrity is how we achieve that excellence.
