Don Dietz has a Master’s Degree in Industrial Education. After retiring from teaching, he traveled throughout the United States and the World.

Inspired by his travels, he started making stained glass artwork incorporating these designs and patterns into his projects. Don’s ability to work with colors and patterns within the glass to achieve an overall effect is unique.

Soon Don made the leap from stained glass to fused glass.  With fused glass, he creatively blends colors, patterns, and textures into original decorative and functional artworks. Don teaches classes and conducts workshops in his desert studio.

His work adorns many homes throughout the United States, England, France, and Japan. It can be viewed at the Desert Art Center in Palm Springs and the Courtyard Gallery in Idyllwild as well as many juried art shows.
