About Us

Glass Expressions has been in business in Burien since 1974.  It was started by Bob Scozaffave as Stained Glass Art and Supply.  Kathy Johnson bought it in 1983 and renamed it Glass Expressions.  Lael Smidt Bennett took a class there and in 1993 wormed her way into the shop as Kathy's business partner.

In addition to running Glass Expressions which includes teaching classes, creating commission projects and doing stained glass repairs, Kathy and Lael both have glass art as side jobs.  Kathy has been making glass beads for 20+ years and Lael has been fusing glass almost as long.  Visit their websites to see what they've been up to.
