Artistic Glass and Design

Stained and Leaded Glass
Abrasive Etched and Carved Glass
Kilnformed Glass & Tile

Creating original & innovative glass art from the White Mountains of Arizona for over 45 years

Jim began his long fascination with art glass in 1972. He started with a simple experiment in abrasive glass etching that produced unexpectedly good results. This led to exploring further possibilities like shade etching technique and multi-stage carving on thicker pieces of glass, and controlled glue chipping. After experimenting with adding a border of colored glass to some etched pieces, it produced such interesting results that it quickly became paramount that Jim acquire the skills, tools and knowledge to design and fabricate stained glass.

In the 1980s, glass fusion and kiln-forming were rapidly gaining popularity in the Pacific Northwest. After much research, and acquiring a small, second-hand kiln, it didn’t take long to figure out that you don’t just melt any two pieces of any glass together and get the desired result.

Now, years later, that simple, overworked and long-deceased starter kiln has given way to six large format kilns. With countless hours of experimentation, volumes of fusing/slumping schedules, testing and notes in the rearview mirror, the shop now turns out a healthy quantity of kiln-formed work. The shop space has grown to 2,700 sq. ft. and is home to lots of needed glass, wood-working equipment, metal forging and welding equipment, as well as glass cold working wet stations. The shop is located in the tall pines at 6,345 feet elevation in the gorgeous White Mountains of Northeast Arizona.

What our customers have to say about Jim

How did an Alaska lodge business get connected with a Stained Glass artist in Arizona? That is an interesting but long story, but what matters is the work they did and the impact it had on our business.
Jim and Deb Zeigler of Artistic Glass & Design rocked it! We brought them to our lodge to get the feel of our environment and our product. Jim consulted with us carefully and measured the spaces. They went back to Arizona then what proceeded was a long distance collaboration of design, feedback and complete documentation as the project was built over a period of several months. Jim is now a master of long distance logistics as a result of the project. We are, literally, at the Western edge of the Western world. Everything arrived packed perfectly and, most important, it all fit perfectly.

Jim created a custom front door entry and four large trapezoid windows for our dining room. The transformation of our entry and the dining room were absolute. People marvel at the work every day as I do.We encourage you, as a prospective customer to view this magnificent work. Visit

My wife and I have some of Jimmy’s work at our home which we are very proud of, not to mention what he has done for us at our restaurant in Pinetop, AZ for Charlie Clarks Steakhouse. Charlie’s is a 70 year old restaurant that is a mixture of cowboy, indian art and misc. Jimmy’s glass art fits in very well and accents the rest of our decor beautifully. He is one of the best if not the best in his field, which are fields of many.

Working with Jim has been an awesome experience. His communication from the start to the finish left us with an exceptional entry way to our new home. We are so pleased with the finished product and it was so painless. Jim is an easy going, professional person, who really knows his stuff and isn’t afraid to try something new. When he was ready to show us an example of what our work would look like, he showed up with more than what we were expecting. He really does his homework and you know, before you get the actual product, exactly what you are getting. There is no guesswork! We would highly recommend Jim to do any type of artistic work in glass, metal or wood. In fact, we are going to have him do some more projects for us and look forward to working with him again.

I’ve worked with Jim Zeigler for years and he’s a dream come true! Not only can he pull the exact picture you have in your head out and put it on paper, but then he exceeds your expectations with the final project! I finally hired him to do our staircase in our new home after having him do so many exceptional pieces for other clients….that now I’m convinced I have the best piece he’s done thus far!.

When Jim says he’s going to do something, he does it and does it very well. I truly believe he tries to exceed your expectations and he did so on my stained glass windows in my home. Also, he was in constant contact with me through the entire process so there was never any surprises except at the very end on delivery day. WOW what a pleasant surprise that was!

Mr. James l. Zeigler is truly an artist with exceptional creative talent. His attention to realism and artistic detail is extraordinary. My wife, Michelle, and I are extremely fortunate to possess some of his artistry in the form of carved and etched glass works in our home. Our entry way door features a large bull elk created in carved glass and is a source of pride for us. We are both proud and fortunate to possess some of his outstanding work.

Dear Jim,
I can’t thank you enough for the glass work you did for my conservatory skylights. I get compliments from everyone who sees them and they are the perfect touch for my outdoor sanctuary, (even the plants seem to be happier)! The orchids and hummers are so well done and beautiful in any light of day. I would be happy to recommend you to anyone in need of a glass artist and designer.
Thank you again Jim

The best thing we did was to commission James Zeigler to create our entry etched/carved glass panels. James also etched our bar’s vertical decorative mirrors. What a creative master artist he is! His work in the Red Devil Restaurant is the talk of the town. I’m looking forward to the next project I do using James’ creativity.
