From his DYI beginnings, Doug Dodd has evolved to a self-taught, master stained glass artist. In addition to stained glass, Doug produces exquisite bespoke works in wood that were also inspired by a DYI project, creating a decorative divider screen as a fundraiser for the Museums of Los Gatos, where he served as a board member.
Dodd recently added 3D digital printing capability to produce children’s desks, sculptural rocking horses, and other whimsical works destined to become cherished family heirlooms. Bring your children to visit Doug Dodd’s studio where they will enjoy a ride on a rocking miniature motorcycle, seahorse or other creature. Adults may select from an array intricate wood and stained glass collectibles of varying sizes, and a new line of carefully crafted leather digital tablet pouches and other leather works.
Dodd’ creates his own, original designs but he also accepts commissions and can even be called upon to restore old stained glass windows and panels. In reference to his spectrum of materials and techniques, Doug explains, “I am always looking for new ways to express myself new ways of expressing the same idea.”
