Check out the Etsy shop of Ted Schrey

The strangest things happen on the world wide web. Many moons ago, in college, I dated a very nice young man. Now we are friends again through the amazing web that is facebook. After many years in the corporate world, Ted is living on the Big Island of Hawaii and is making beautiful stained glass pieces. He has a new Etsy shop that he (unlike me!) is keeping stocked with wonderful artwork.

I love the use of copper in the stands and frames.

I think he has something at every price point you can own a small Ted Schrey piece or very large complex pieces.

Here are a few hanging in a gallery in Hawaii.

I've never seen one of these pieces in person, but Ted is pretty particular, so I'm sure the craftsmanship is beautiful. The coral and watery glass in this one...perfect.

Ted is also a painter, writer, and furniture builder. Hopefully we will see some paintings on his site soon. If we are lucky he might even start a blog one day.

If you need something special, he does custom work as well. Click here to check out his latest work...

...undoubtedly inspired by the beauty he encounters every day.

Falling Water is my favorite piece! Oh how I love it. He most definitely has talent.

I love the way stained glass looks when the sun light pours though it!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Oh my, what a life - an artist living in Hawaii! I've always loved stained glass and glass moasic pieces, maybe it's time I buy one! My fav is Moon over Island Suncatcher - brings back memories of our 1st anniversary trip to Hawaii :) Thanks for sharing!

Thanks for sticking with the very long story about my husband! I am almost up to "current events"! Once I get up to date - I will likely just post once or twice a week about what is going on.

Hey there, Sorry I haven't been by in a while. Hope all is well. It looks like you've been a world traveler. Very interesting.

I really like the glass work your friend has done. It's gorgeous!
