The Pompei Studio ~ A Family Affair
The Pompei Stained & Fused Glass studio was founded by Joseph Pompei in 1979. Joseph was joined by his wife, Ivy Pompei, as a full time partner in 1981. After being located in Medford MA for 32 years, the Pompei studio moved to Western Avenue Studios, now the largest artist colony of its kind in the US.
Over the years, the Pompei studio has gained a reputation among architects, interior designers , builders and homeowners as one of the East Coast’s premiere suppliers of architectural art glass to the US and Canada.
Several years ago the Pompeis decided to expand their business by offering a variety of architectural accessories, including the finest of wood and fiberglass doors by manufacturers such as Jeld-Wen.
As committed artisans, the pursuit of excellence is reflected in not only their own commissions but in the quality of the products Pompei Stained Glass chooses to display and retail. It is their commitment to excellence, along with their talent and skill as artisans, as well as 40 years of experience which sets the Pompeis apart from most other glass studios. We invite you to experience this difference with a visit to the Pompei Stained Glass studio.
Fused Glass Art
More recently, the Pompeis welcomed their daughter Marissa as a full-time studio member. Besides working in stained and leaded glass, Marissa is a fused glass artist, specializing in unique fused glass jewelry, glass sculptures and accessories. A new fused glass jewelry online Etsy store can be viewed at www.pompeiglass.etsy.com. Having grown up around art glass, Marissa is fond of saying that stained glass is in her DNA. Marissa has been a terrific addition to the Pompei Studio and plans to carry on the family business begun by her father back in 1979. Riley is the studios’s official greeter and a hit with all who visit.
