Dan Neil Barnes

Meet the maestro

A new way to think about stained glass - that's what you get when Dan Neil Barnes goes beyond traditional ideas about lamps and windows by adding treated metals, crafted wood and unique lighting to stained glass. His work moves the craft of stained glass into a new creative art form, one that pushes the idea of glass in art to a whole new level.

Born to a family of builders and craftsmen, Dan Neil Barnes experienced firsthand the satisfaction of creating something from an idea or inspiration. The love of creating his own designs was what led Dan to open his own business in 1986. Since then, Dan has earned an outstanding reputation in the glass community for his design flair and top quality craftsmanship.

Seeking another creative outlet, Dan began experimenting with stained glass several years ago. After studying the craft from Laura Hallock in Lexington, KY, Dan began creating his own original designs combining light, color and texture. Dan was awarded top honors for his stained glass in local art shows.
