Welcome to Randall's Stained Glass Studio and home of Silkwater Glass in Austin, Texas. We create custom stained glass windows, lamps, and sculptures from original designs. Our work ranges from a contemporary aesthetic to the classic designs of Gothic, Victorian, Art Nouveau, Art and Crafts, and Art Deco periods. Our specialty creations reflect the Landscapes of Texas, the Southwest, Deserts and Beaches as well as floral and garden scenes. Randall Soileau works closely with clients to designs and builds stained glass art through commissions.

On creating box lamps :
" I love the concept of a box lamp. It provides the opportunity to display the detail work of the Tiffany style (copper foil technique) and with new LED lighting there is greater control of the light source. Each side of the stained glass lamp provides the opportunity of a new scene or the continuation of a scene across the four sides and top. With the new LED strip lights controlled by remote it is possibly to change colors and intensity of light as well as play a programmed mode."
