No Days Road Show - Norwood Custom Glass, Cincinnati, Ohio

Norwood Custom Glass specializes in creating custom stained glass windows,
etching, carving and beveling glass (including mirror), and fused and painted glass.
This is Norwood Custom Glass, located just on the North side of Cincinnati, Ohio. I absolutely love the Art Deco styling of the building. I visited Norwood Custom Glass in June for a No Days Road Show and was amazed by the studio set-up. There's such a large inventory of glass, patterns, tools and materials!

Owner Stan Sabick
Stan Sabick gave me a quick tour of the building. They're located next to a doggie daycare and recently moved upstairs so the dogs had more room to play. That's not to say there's not plenty of room for playing with glass, though!
The Monster Beveler

See that Monster Beveler? That's what Norwood Custom Glass uses to create all kinds of custom bevels. It takes time and patience to polish up cut glass. But, it's well worth the result. Don't you just love the rainbows that get thrown across a room when the sun hits a beveled window? If you need a one-of-a-kind design in bevels, they can create it for you. Got cracked bevels? They can repair or restore your window or mirror by creating a bevel.

Laying down the pieces for the No Days Groutless Mosaic
For our No Days Road Show visit, we played with No Days Groutless Mosaic Adhesive in the morning to create instant mosaics. After a one hour session, the students left with finished mosaic coasters.

In the afternoon, we had another session of mosaic making, but this time the students created mosaic coasters using No Days ThinFuse, fusible glass and frit for grout.

Afternoon ThinFuse Mosaic Class

Norwood Custom Glass offers a full line of classes ranging from beginner to advanced classes. These include stained glass, fused glass, mosaic, and etched glass classes, as well as many workshops.

A rainbow of stained glass stocked in store
Norwood Custom Glass has the tri-state (Ohio/Kentucky/Indiana) area's largest inventory of in-stock stained glass and supplies. And it's set up beautifully with lights behind samples of glass in every color and pattern imaginable. So, you can quickly (Ha! Is there such a thing?!?) find just the right piece of glass for your next stained glass project.

  1. Wow! I want to try this stained glass! Can you teach me how to make stained glass? I love to learn how to do it!

  2. The best thing to do if you really want to learn how to create stained glass is to find a stained glass shop in your area that teaches beginning stained glass classes and take a short course. This will introduce you to all the basics. There are many videos online for learning, as well, but it really is great to have someone local to answer your questions as they arise. If there are no studios in your area, Streuter has several how to videos on their YouTube Channel (
    Glass Patterns Quarterly (an art glass magazine) has also begun hosting online classes. Denny Berkery just taught two stained glass classes recently ) You may want to keep an eye on their schedule.
    Good luck!

  3. Nice! Stained Glass Mosaics are surprisingly easy to start making. The craft is much easier to learn than traditional stained glass and yet the results can be equally as stunning.

  4. Oh my, those are huge glass collection, just like the library.
