Fine Artists of the midwest

All River Road Talent


Pennie, Daryl & Drew Groezinger, NW Designs Glass Studio - Stockton, IL
The family of artists shares time and talents together as they create one of a kind glass pieces using both lamp work and kiln work techniques.  Stirred by the desire of their son Drew to work with glass, the family now shares hours of enjoyment designing and creating their works of art in their studio. These works of art are incorporated in stunning wine stoppers, purse clips, bookmarks, fan pulls, framed art pieces and jewelry. These striking unique pieces of art are enjoyed by all ages and valued as they are one of a kind designs.

Drew started making lampwork beads at the age of five and he then taught his parents the art of lampwork design.  There love for the arts then grew to include fusing (kiln) glass designs and working with fibers.  The family has a beautiful studio and gift shop were clients can watch pieces being designed and purchase one of a kind designs hand made in Jo Daviess County.  The Studio is nestled in the hills of Jo Daviess County, 30 minutes from scenic Galena Illinois. Studio hours can be found on their Facebook Page at NW Designs Glass Studio or via email or text messages. 

The Groezinger family is the six generation of Groezinger's in JoDaviess County and believe strongly in community development and stewardship.  Focused on working together, the Groezinger's are excited to be a part of the All River Road Tour and welcome you to their unique studio.   The studio is located only 3 miles south of Highway 20 and is nestled in the beautiful hills next to Wards Grove Nature Preserve.   To learn more about their designs or to see additional studio hours follow them on Facebook at NW Designs Glass Studio where new designs are posted every week in addition to studio hours.  The studio is also open by appointment so please contact them if you are in the area and are interested in visiting the studio.
