Amy Keith Barney Stained Glass (Asheboro, North Carolina)

Amy is an artist who spends her free time making one-of-kind pieces of whimsical stained-glass suncatchers in her Asheboro studio. She is inspired by bold graphic patterns, organic shapes, fabric motifs, nature, found objects and places she has traveled.  All of her pieces are created and designed by hand from initial sketch to a finely polished piece of art, “each one made by my hands alone,” she says.

“My love of stained glass comes from always loving happy and bright colors. It all started in 1991 when I was 10 years old and my parents decided to open a stained-glass business,” Amy says. "I was very fortunate to learn right alongside of them.”
