What we Do
Stanton Studios works with architects and interior designers, home owners, churches, and businesses to create custom, hand-crafted architectural art pieces in the mediums of glass, metal, and wood.
Stanton Studios is in the business of telling stories. Your stories. Every project, from vision to execution, has a tale that weaves into the intricate designs of the glass window, wood creation, and metal artwork. Our work is customed-tailored to your dreams and ideas.
The mediums of glass, metal, and wood are all interconnected, and many of our projects expand across these different art forms. We create many glass and metal light fixtures, glass and metal domes, wood window sashes, and more. We also install LED backlighting for windows.
If you can dream it, we can make it.
The Wood Shop
Stanton Studios’s woodshop, also known as Stanton Woodworks, began when Nathan Stanton was 18 years old and has grown to be a large business of wood craftsmanship. Clients from around the state of Texas have requested Stanton Woodworks to build custom high-end, wood creations for their business or homes.
Stanton Woodworks will partner with you to discuss and design your vision for a custom piece in wood. Some of the past projects from the wood shop are:
- Custom doors and entries
- Custom furnture
- Architectural window frames and sashes
Whatever your vision, Stanton Woodworks can make it happen.
The Glass Shop
The glass shop of Stanton Studios, originally Stanton Glass Studio, is still producing beautiful stained and leaded glass pieces. Our glass shop produces:
- Custom stained and leaded glass windows
- Hand-painted windows
- Custom doors & entries
- Stained glass domes
- Stained glass skylights
- Custom light fixtures
- Historic stained glass window restoration
- Blown & fused glass
- LED backlighting for stained glass windows.
We work with you to create a custom design just for you. We email you design proofs for your approval. We fabricate the project, and install the finished product. Stanton Studios has work in cathedrals, churches, libraries, hotels, restaurants, convention centers, and private homes around the country.
Our company also offers blown glass during certain seasons of the year in our glass blowing shop. Please contact our office for more information about custom blown glass creations like bowls, lamp shades, and light fixtures.
The metal Shop
The studio designs and creates metal pieces such as light fixtures and window frames. Stanton Studios has also collaborated with other metal artisans in the area to design and create large sculptures like the three story DNA Sculpture at McLennan Community College and Bats Taking Flight for the Waco Sculpture Zoo in Cameron Park. .
Stanton Studios also designs and builds metal sculptures for private and public art spaces.
If you have inquiries for metal artwork, please contact our office.
During the cooler months of the year, Stanton Studios opens up the glassblowing shop for mouth-blown art pieces like pumpkins, ornaments, and vases. We invite our customers out to the studio to blow their own pumpkins in October and ornaments before Christmas each year.
All ages can participate in the events, and these events are easy and fun for the whole family! While Jordan, our master glassblower, will handle the shaping of the pieces and the addition of the colors, the participant will blow it into shape. The pieces need 24 hours to anneal, but can be picked up or shipped on the following business day. The results are always gorgeous and unique.

Stanton Studios specializes in historical stained-glass restoration. We have restored some of the Southwest’s most impressive and historic stained-glass windows, domes, and skylights. Stanton Studios matches glass for shattered glass, mends broken pieces, and re-leads and solders crumbling windows so that they are restored to their former glory. Stanton Studios also focuses on the proper installation of protective glass coverings and ventilation used to protect stained glass windows. We have restored windows damaged by fires, hurricanes, vandalism, etc. We also perform routine cleaning of historical windows from churches and businesses. To get a free inspection, reach out to us!
