Home ~ About Aurora Colors
Aurora Colors studio and store moved to Sebastopol in March 2013. The owners swear they will never move their store again.
There are other stained glass businesses, and window glass businesses, but Vangie and Lyndon have made it their business to be accomplished glass artists in several stained glass techniques and use them to provide the widest variety of services available anywhere in Northern California. They do not out source their jobs. Vangie is fond of saying 'we do just about anything with glass except blow it' and if they can't help you, they probably know someone that can. Their combined skills - acquired before glass and since - has helped them create a self-sufficient business. If they had needed to hire others for website building, photographing and editing, writing ads, remodeling stores, and all the many small and big tasks that they do themselves - they wouldn't have been able to build and grow Aurora Colors. They married later in life. Vangie was 48 and Lyndon was 52. They believed that if they could just work together, they might be able to make up for some of the years they can never have together. Sometimes it has been hard working so closely, but always worth it. Neither thought they would someday be glass artists or own a store. They have had many self-realizations and learned they possess innate abilities not realized before Aurora Colors. Their love for each other has woven into their business and every glass work they create has a touch of them in it. They hope you enjoy their albums here and elsewhere on this site, perhaps return to browse what is new. If you get inspired, perhaps they may assist you as well.
