Chelsea Brewer is the owner and designer of Brewer & Marr Glassworks, a full-service stained glass studio located in Visalia, CA. She has been featured in ABC News, Sunset Magazine, Talisen West the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture, and the Desert Botanical Garden, both located in Arizona.
In response to incredible demand, Chelsea presents pop-up style stained glass workshops in design workrooms & showrooms, art museums, conferences, and various shops & tasting rooms across the west and southwest, most notably- Millworks Design Studio, the Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara, and Craftcation (coming soon!).
Chelsea was introduced to stained glass as a child through her uncle, Michael Marr Dyer. Uncle Mike was a talented stained glass craftsman and created lead lights and mosaics, always gifting his finished projects to friends and family.
She grew up admiring the light and color of his finished panels and dreamed of learning from him one day. After Uncle Mike’s sudden and untimely passing in 2013, in wanting to honor him, Chelsea attended her first stained glass class and immediately fell in love with the process. In 2015, she founded Brewer & Marr Glassworks and began designing and making her own sun catchers out of her parents garage in Ojai, CA, rapidly growing into commissioned custom windows and panels for various businesses and private estates. Her most recent project was for Topa Topa Brewing Co.’s, latest tap room extension in Ojai, CA.
With her studio now located in Visalia, CA, Chelsea continues to honor her heritage by sharing her love of the craft through her hard work, dedication, and meticulous craftsmanship. She’s most inspired by light, color and texture, modern shapes, and natural landscapes. She is also heavily influenced by her southwest-meets-central-coast upbringing, background in photography, and love of simple design.
When she’s not in the studio, Chelsea can be found reveling in, and admiring, nature’s finest achievements and indoors listening to records while experimenting in the kitchen with Greg, Ted (pup), and Jude (kit).
