Meet Russell Christiansen - Glass Artist

Russell Christiansen is a self-taught artist specializing in Stained Glass. He was born and raised in Kenosha, WI and retired 4.5 years ago to Southern Florida.  While working as a Sheet Metal Worker he befriended the owner of a local glass shop which enhanced his fascination with glass. He began creating Kaleidoscopes in the mid 1990’s and quickly moved into Stained Glass.

Russ has produced numerous windows, Lamp Shades, and Wall sconces and has recently completed a 24 window project for a Synagogue in Mequon.
