A few of Marty's items are now for sale at Lansdowne Avenue's charming Paddington Station, 12 South Lansdowne Avenue. Mirrors, knobs, and nail files are among Marty's offerings at the store, located directly next to the acclaimed Sycamore.
New in the gallery! Take a look at these new bags in the Sister Art section. These fun and functional bags were recycled from antique upholstery sample books from Noel Schmidt Furniture, a Lansdowne institution for 100 years, by Helene Von Rosenstiel. Each bag is finished with a Martyglass jewel. Also see this new set of mirrors and more made by Marty with Dichroic glass!
About The Artist: Marty Von Rosenstiel
Marty Von Rosenstiel is a visual artist who makes beautiful and intriguing creations from a variety of found, recycled and repurposed materials. Currently, her primary focus is on glass art, in particular the vibrant colors and patterns that can be created by fusing dichroic glass. However, her true artistic passions are driven by simply making a mess, having fun, and letting her imagination lead the way.
Her creations have included birds, fish, and bugs, and has also included a number of pieces made entirely from recycled glass. While not all of her work possesses universal appeal, individuals are drawn to her creations for many different and often personal reasons.
In her free time, Marty shares her Victorian house and overgrown garden with her husband and two sons in Lansdowne, Pennsylvania. She does her best to eliminate any downtime in her life with various art and community projects.
