Michael Rievley is no newcomer to the art of stained glass. In fact, he’s been a commissioned stained glass artist for over 30 years, spending much of his time in Ireland restoring ancient windows. Often religious in nature, Michael worked on such fascinating structures as St. Patrick’s Cathedral in Dublin, Oranmore Castle, Bunratty Castle, and the Galway Cathedral, to name a few. He has designed and executed more than 2,000 windows!
These days, Michael enjoys the “less serious” side of stained glass. Locally, folks can now find his more modern creations on most Sundays at Chattanooga Market. His new Crazy Face Collection (pictured) will bring an instant smile to your face. As an established artist, he finds it refreshing to create these frivolous pieces of art, each one being original and unique. Even though Michael’s works are available for purchase, he also does commissioned stained glass projects, both residential and commercial.
Michael resides in North Chattanooga with his two teenage daughters. Come meet him in person at Chattanooga Market, Sundays 11-4pm
