Tyler Kimball, the owner of Monarch Glass Studio, began his journey into working with glass as a stained glass artist. He began working in stained glass in 1999. Though his path has taken into the world of hot glass and other disciplines within the material, it is the finished look of stained glass that is still his true passion. Monarch Glass Studio is one of just a handful of studios that creates stained glass works from start to finish. Working in design of windows for large installations, creating the glass itself in the hot glass studio, fabricating the windows, and also installing the windows nationwide is really the full gamut that is not offered by many.
