Mark Tomascak became interested in working with stained glass approximately 20 years ago. He learned to score colored glass and solder them together to make windows, lamp shades, mirrors and other works of art. As his reputation grew through word of mouth, his dream of working at his art full time came true when he opened Dragonfly Art Glass Studios in New Milford CT. During the past 20 years Mr. Tomascak's portfolio has grown.
He uses a variety of techniques and materials, such as different types of lead, zinc channels, bevels, copper foil, and abrasives. He has incorporated several different air brush techniques. He has furthered his skills in glass etching by going to Sante Fe, NM to study new techniques in glass etching. His skills have given him many unique opportunities as in spending time in Finland working with a team of artists to create an incredible stage on board one of Royal Caribbean's cruise liners. The Royal Caribbean is the world's largest cruise liners. His love for stained glass shows brightly through his pieces of glass art. He enjoys creating custom pieces. You need only to provide your desires and he will develop a beautiful custom design piece just for you.
