Sunflower Glassworks owner, Mary Datwyler, loves glass! Fascinated with stained glass windows as a child, she began working with glass as an adult. What started out as a fun hobby, quickly became a home-based business. She works in stained glass, fused/kilnworked glass and lampwork glass. She is also a brick and mortar glass shop owner, all-ages glass instructor and a full-time glass artist with pieces on six of the seven continents. Her gorgeous kiln-worked glass bowl is featured in DIY Network's Blog Cabin 2015.
Storeowner Melvin Faris started working in the construction trade at a very young age and has always had a passion for wood. A few years ago he took up woodturning and it has quickly turned into a growing family business. He gets the most satisfaction from reclaiming a piece of locally grown wood destined for the bonfire or garbage and turning it into a beautiful work of art that is as functional as it is beautiful.
