On-the-go style is the key for this busy mom.

Marcie Tauber’s glass art is driven by passion.
When remodeling the kitchen of her North Wilmington home several years ago, Marcie Tauber learned the stained glass cabinet door she wanted was too expensive. When she took a class on stained glass, upon her husband’s suggestion, she learned to make the cabinet herself.
“I fell in love with the art of glass creation,” Tauber says.
Now she creates fused glass bowls, platters, and sculptural pieces for herself and for clients. “Most people have a place in mind they want to fill with my art,” she says. “I just delivered a structural piece in blue and green, based on a black and orange piece my customer liked, to his office in Annapolis.”
Tauber, a business analyst by day, worked with stained glass for five years, creating pieces, including a Craftsman-style lamp for her sister, for family and friends. When Tauber became interested in fused glass, “My husband bought me a 20-by-20 inch 1,500-degree kiln for my birthday three years ago,” she says. “Now I work my 40 hours a week at my computer, come home, then play in my basement.”
Tauber takes her work to festivals such as ArtFest, the annual benefit for the Ronald McDonald House, and the Delaware Hospice Festival of Trees. She has won first place for fine arts at the Brandywine Arts Festival and also sells her work via her website, www.inspirationsinglass.com, and at Thornton Gallery in Thornton, Pennsylvania. — Katie Ginder-Vogel
