She has built her reputation in the Palm Beach Community as one of the most unique glass etching artists in the area. 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. The talented staff includes glass etcher and carver Steve Park and artist/painter Julie Silk Beaumont who works with Carolyn to create spectacular designs for our glass art, from traditional to contemporary and anything in between. Glass fusing artist Stacy Dorr offers 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.

What happens when you mix Wood, Glass and Clay???   You get an amazing, creative, new art form from three accomplished Artists.   The collaboration of this one of a kind mixed media show started out as a friendship between fellow artists Pamela Carman, Carolyn Austin and Bill Jones sharing ideas and admiring each other’s designs.  

They competed individually, at some of the same competitions, and won awards together. The list of their successes and their ability to teach, exhibit, and give back to the Palm Beach Art communities is commendable.   They started talking, sketching, etching, cutting, turning and gluing………!!!!!!

The majority of her work is inspired by and based in nature. Recurring animal themes, especially of birds and fish can be seen in her most recent work. They are meant to bring a smile or chuckle.

Carolyn has lived in the Jupiter/Tequesta area since 1979 and 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. She tells us, “I love working with people and using my 25 years plus of 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 client’s home and personality. Making my glass art a personal favorite for each client is always satisfying. I take pride in my work and the exclusive following it has created.”    www.uniqueglassart.com
