Featured Glass Artist: Rita Shimelfarb

Rita Shimelfarb, owner of Glass Can Dance studio, has been inspiring fellow glass artists and customers alike, with extraordinary pieces for more than twenty years. Rita’s talents as an innovative glass artist have graced the cover of our catalog and her most recent work will debut this January at the Ronald McDonald House near Central Du Page Hospital in Illinois.Rita Shimelfarb Stained Glass Panel

Rita’s unique skills combine the rich history of stained glass with the beauty of fused glass, painted glass, dichoric glass, and reclaimed pieces. Her work is truly one of a kind. As the largest wholesale art glass distributor in North America, we were stunned by Rita’s work after she entered one of our Featured Artist contests on Facebook. We are proud to support and partner with an artist of her caliber.

“Having EdHoy’s as a partner on my last project has been an amazing experience. I don’t think I’ve heard a ‘no’ or ‘we can’t’ from anyone involved even once! If I needed something right away, it was in the mail the same day. If I had a technical question, they knew who to connect me with to find answers that made sense. The support and advice I received from the staff was invaluable. Thanks, guys!”
