Magpie & Squid began as a mother/daughter collaboration in 2014, featuring stained glass creations by Sydney, the daughter and "Squid" half of the pair, and fused glass pieces by Kris, the mom and the "Magpie".
Just a short year later, in 2015, Syd married and moved from Southeast Alaska to the Aleutian Chain and one business became two with the original "Magpie & Squid" retaining the fused glass focus and "Magpie & Squid SG" becoming the stained glass arm. The girls continue to collaborate, sharing ideas and inspiration, though separation by the gulf of Alaska (a mere 1,350 miles as the magpie flies) necessitates separate workshops.
In the meantime, the original Magpie & Squid has grown, recently adding a new kiln - making the creation of larger, more intricate pieces possible. Plans are in the works for a brick and mortar storefront in the next few years, however we welcome visitors to our workshops and are happy to make our inventory available for in-person viewing, just call ahead!

Magpie & Squid's Journeys into Glassworking
Customers Are Saying...
I purchased a piece along with the matching medium tray. They are absolutely beautiful! The photos are great but there is something about glass that you really can't appreciate the beauty until you feel it in your hand. I am just in love with them!
