Welcome to our website. My name is Greg Rosenberg and my wife is Margaret. We have been married since 1975 and have raised four boys and now have several grandchildren. I have been doing stained glass since 1976 working out of our home in Brainerd Minnesota and have just recently moved into a beautiful new studio in the Franklin Arts Center here in Brainerd. My wife complements my stained glass work beautifully with her own Victorian hand beaded hand sewn lamp shades.
I have done many stained glass windows for churches, private homes and businesses primarily in Minnesota and have lamps across the country.
As you will see, my designs usually depict wild life and flowers paying attention to the detail of how they grow and interact with the environment. It is my passion to bring the beauty of God’s creation to light in hope that this will ease the every day worries and burdens we carry and remind us that we are not alone. I often have spiritual symbolism in my work that is not pretentious or overbearing but adds to the content and coolness factor of the work without being “preachy” I love what I do and put as much of myself into my work as I can appreciating the privilege of being an artist.
The introduction of copper sculpture to my work has opened the door to many exciting new possibilities. It started because I needed lamp bases to complement the stained glass shades I design. I thought, how hard could it be to make my own? After a many trials and errors I figured out what would work. With each lamp I make I learn something new. I don’t know of anyone else doing this type of work but I am sure you are out there. Within a year of doing lamp bases in copper sculpture (the Morning glory vine being my first) I was approached by a wonderful and supportive couple that asked me if I could do this artwork with different applications such as on a door. Being who I am I enthusiastically said yes and then had to figure out how to actually do it! It seems that the sky is the limit, doing doors, furniture, free standing sculptures and fountains, cove moulding, you name it.
My wife does the hand stitched and hand beaded Victorian type lamps and is able to work with her customers matching lamp fabric with window dressings, pillows etc. She also restores old lamps and can rebuild the old drum or rembrandt shades to their original beauty assuring that you don’t have to try to match a new shade with your original base.
If you have any questions about our work I hope you feel free to contact us. Thank you and enjoy our new site.
