If you are not familiar with my company and your first contact is here online, I would love to hear from you. You can reach me at 434-661-8333. I am more than happy to answer your questions and I am looking forward to hearing from you. You may also email me at Stained.Glass.by.Jini@gmail.com
In brief, you should know the following about my business: Since 1993 Stained Glass by Jini has been creating outstanding art glass for discriminating clients. My specialty is the design, creation and installation of custom, Tiffany-style art pieces for clients. Regular customers particularly value the innovative artistic approach I employ for each project, the careful selection of materials that are critically important to original works of art, and the close coordination and communication that ensure complete client satisfaction.
"Watching the River" is one of my newest pieces and I used a variety of techniques to achieve the 3 dimensional effects for the landscape and the red tail hawk. The mountains are the beloved Peaks of Otter in Bedford, Virginia.
I change the content from time to time so please come back often and be sure to visit the What's New and Items for Sale pages. As artwork finds its way into its final destination, new pieces are added to the collection so there will always be unique art glass pieces to discover and enjoy.
Be sure to go to The Process page to understand the complex process involved in creating these extraordinary works of art glass.
My name is Jini Lynn Bitzer and from the time I was a young girl, I knew I was an artist. I pursued a multitude of endeavors such as airbrush mural painting and portrait and fantasy illustration before deciding to focus on the design and creation of original art glass. I am very fortunate to have a career doing something I love. I believe that art glass brings joy to all who see its beauty and I am so honored and thrilled to be able to provide this to my clients, many of whom have become close friends.
I am the mother of two wonderful young adults, Meagan, 27 and Karl, who is 25. Occasionally, they save the day by pitching in when I have a big project and need extra help. I live in Charlottesville, Virginia not far from the Blue Ridge Mountains and the James River, so there is no lack of natural inspiration! For those of you living in other beautiful parts of our country, I would love to capture your favorite scenes or memories permanently in stained glass.
I have to thank my mom for all of her tireless work (days and days) building this fabulous website. She had the time to do it while she was recovering from a broken leg. Thanks, Mom, for always being my biggest fan and cheering me on ever since I could hold a crayon.
