Hand Cut Glass Art

Each glass painting consists of hundreds, often thousands of pieces of hand cut and custom fitted stained glass shapes.

Not Stained Glass Windows

These pieces are not traditionally translucent leaded stained glass windows. They are opaque in nature. Rather than light shining through the glass, it reflects the glass creating a unique effect.

Ready for Display

Each finished glass artwork is custom framed, lightweight and ready to hang on a wall just like a painting.

  • “It is Polkowska’s love for the outdoors that drives her to create her landscapes … She takes in the colors, the flora and fauna, the unique geological formations and the light of each new place — capturing it all in photographs to use as reference to come up with the image that summarizes her impression of that particular place.”
