A place to see the light turning glass into art.


Welcome to my site. My name is Nelson Alward (Nelly), owner and sole proprietor of Nellyglass Studio. I live in Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada, and I’m married to my soul mate, Monica; Nellyglass business manager, travel twin, wonderful mother and amazing cook.

I started doing stained glass in 2002 when Monica bought me a 10-hour class for Christmas. I made a goldfinch suncatcher and was hooked, for life.Goldfinch

A happy retirement from the education field in 2016 meant I could focus full-time on my craft and that’s when I officially opened Nellyglass Studio.

My Work and This Web Site: I do commissioned work from home and art for sale through CraftologySJ on Prince William Street in Saint John. Most of my work can be seen in the Gallery on this website (Main Menu). Some projects have a story page which captures the entire journey of producing a piece of art from start to finish (visible in Full Site View only)

If you see something on my website that interests you, or have an idea of your own, please inquire through “Contact” on the main menu.
