About Us


We are Ardie and Gene, a retired couple who have long had a love of stained glass. The beauty and craftsmanship of handcrafted stained glass has always captivated us. 

Ardie is a retired Women's Health nurse practitioner, who for many years moonlighted as an interior designer. Gene is a retired printer, whose last years in the printing industry was working on computerization. He has worked as a database consultant. Putting together our love of stained glass and our skills in interior design and computers, we formed Smashing Stained Glass & Lighting.

We started Smashing Stained Glass & Lighting to make available to you the finest stained glass and lighting products at the best prices. From stained glass wall sconces to outdoor lighting fixtures, we're sure you'll find the perfect lighting fixture at Smashing Stained Glass & Lighting! Plus, we pay your shipping, handling and insurance.

We searched for a manufacturer of stained glass with a long history of quality. We found Meyda Tiffany, the oldest and leading manufacturer of stained glass in America. Meyda Tiffany in order to keep Louis Tiffany’s goal of supplying cost efficient stained glass to more people, developed strong operational relationships with several small handicraft shops overseas. Meyda designers work very closely with these stained glass studios to maintain the high level of quality. Meyda also creates beautiful custom lighting in the USA.
