August and Peggy Matuzak
Our paths to the world of art have taken very different roads. But just like in a good marriage we work well in harmony together and also separately. Peggy started out doing stained glass work about 40 years ago and perfected her craft through years of precise work and attention to detail. From small suncatchers to large stained glass windows for churches and homes she is truly a master craftsman. Her work now includes not only stained glass but fused glass as well. Her subject matter with fused glass runs from Picasso to precise mid-century modern, to the abstract. She also loves to paint images on her fused glass pieces to add another dimension to her work.
August on the other hand had a very different path to art. Having always enjoyed fine art but never actually creating art he found himself searching for a hobby after retiring from the insurance business. That was 9 years ago with a little used kiln of Peggy’s being the starting point for the experimentation. Fused glass and acrylic painting are both explored with a sense for bold colors and abstract shapes. Throw in some geometric squares for contrast and you have a unique take on what he loves to create. Large scale projects pose a creative challenge to push the limits of what can be done for both interior and exterior installations.
Both artists love to create something new and challenging, nothing cookie cutter or mass produced here. Both love taking an idea, ours or our customers, and bringing it to life on glass and canvas.
