Carolyn Austin began designing and creating glass art within the family business in 1986. She has built her reputation in the Palm Beach Community as one of the most unique glass etching artists in the area. Her gallery and studio are located in the Center Park Plaza in Jupiter Florida.
Carolyn has lived in the Jupiter/Tequesta area since 1979 and has developed an eye for the tropical Florida scenes from long legged birds to intensely detailed ocean life which in turn creates one of kind glass art.
“I love working with people and using my 20 years experience to create a beautiful customized look in glass whether it be an entrance way or a free standing piece of glass art. All my designs are created by hand, an intricate detailed process to enhance each clients home and personality. Making my glass art a personal favorite for each client is always satisfying I take pride in my work as does my staff and the exclusive following it has created.”
Since taking on this venture, the business has grown in many different directions. We are staffed with a talented group that works well together creating a lasting impression in many different aspects of glass art. Glass etcher and carver Steve Park adds his talent to the designs created with the process of multi level etching and carving. This is and intense intricate part of the final outcome of our glass art. Artist and painter Julie Silk Beaumont also works with Carolyn to create spectacular designs for our glass art, from traditional to contemporary and anything in between. Julie can add color with paint to our glass or murals behind it to add colorful dimension. Glass fusing artist Stacy Dorr also works with Carolyn offering her unique talent of creating “Hot Glass” to enhance and add new dimension with depth and color to our etched and carved designs. Between these artists Unique Glass Art offers a variety of glass art from your doors and windows to free standing glass art and unique gifts.
