My name is Chiara Reading. I live in Mount Laurel, New Jersey with my husband John where our three precocious cats allow us to share a home with them.
During a weekly "date night with my husband we took a stained glass course and a passion soon developed. Within a few weeks I was fully addicted!
The creation of stained glass gave me an outlet to combine my love of gardening, the worlds beaches, the ocean and SCUBA diving with a creative process. I especially love the process of design, choosing color and texture to bring something to life.
In keeping with my love of nature and all the splendid gifts our world has given us, I choose to use lead free, enviromentally friendly solder on all my works. It is a little more expensive but well worth it.
My designs can be found as far away as Fiji on the liveaboard yacht, Naia. Three original designs were commissioned to grace her salon. I am so excited to be part of the Naia family.
If you are interested in having a custom piece designed for your home, business, or yacht, or if you are looking for that perfect unique gift for a wedding, anniversary, birthday, or holiday gift, please fill out a custom order request (link is at top right of this page).
