John Shiflett| Joplin MO

I was born and raised in Pueblo, Colorado with an inquisitive nature and thirst for learning new things. I was a Construction Consultant for the Cripple Creek and Victor Gold Mine for almost 30 years. I have learned a lot of crafts on my own, from tying fishing flies, to sewing, to woodworking projects and home renovations and a lot of things in between. I recently left Colorado to start a new adventure here in Joplin, Missouri. Through the urging of my two sons, I developed a passion for stained glass creation. I truly enjoy creating stained glass panels and sun catchers that folks can really appreciate. I have been creating panels since January of 2019 and since then have developed a serious interest in fused glass products, jewelry and copper-wrapped jewelry, and the art of glass signs. There is nothing I love more than working in my studio with my two miniature Schnauzers, Izzy and Coco, looking on intently. I am a 2-time Delphi Glass Artist of the Year and a 5-time Delphi Glass Featured Artist. I am John Shiflett, Owner of SSJ’s Fantastic Stained Glass Creations and Glass Madness Studio.
