Welcome to the world of


Carl Trimble, dba Trimble Studios, is an architectural glass artist and sculptor. My desire is to become the artwork resource for you or your firm as is appropriate.  Whether your plans include original, one of a kind art, or the restoration and repair of existing art, I would welcome the opportunity to talk with you about your desires or needs.

Within the website you will find a variety of images of my work which range from very traditional to ultra contemporary. Included  are images of residential, religious and hospitality/commercial     work in a wide variety of both style and art glass media. In some cases, before and after images show the dramatic difference a well designed and fabricated work of art can make in your home or other environment.

Although not a new kid on the block in the Metroplex, in some ways, I have been one of its best kept secrets. The intent is to eliminate the secrecy. Beginning in 1985 with a commission for the Park City Club in Preston Center, I have continued to receive major commissions which have included The Energy Club; 8080 N. Central Expressway in Campbell Center; Gleneagles Country Club in Plano, the Petroleum Club in Fort Worth and the restoration of the stained glass for the Criswell Center of First Baptist Church, Dallas. My studio was selected by the project architects for the restoration of the stained glass at The Mansion on Turtle Creek at its recent remodeling. These are in addition to the numerous residential, commercial, and religious commissions which have continued to be received over the years.

Mine is a full service studio which provides a wide range of custom architectural glass products. Our award winning work ranges from traditional, turn of the 20th Century designs to those designs which can be most readily be defined as "cutting edge 21st Century contemporary."

As an artist, I hold a Master of Fine Arts degree from The University of North Texas and have more than forty years experience in my craft. I am a member of the Dallas Chapter of the American Institute of Architects as a Professional Affiliate; serving on the Historical Resources Committee and as a member of the Small Firms Roundtable. In addition, I am an associate member of the National Association of Church Design Builders.

Services offered include, but are not limited to:

  • Leaded stained glass

These products have a wide range of applications such as doors, windows, skylights, cabinet doors, shower enclosures, tables and/or table tops, lighting fixtures or decorative accessories. The broader your imagination, the more exciting the challenge.

The design for your project begins with the seed of an idea generated by discussions between you, your design professional and me. If no architect or designer is required, I work directly with the individual client. The design concept is then nurtured to maturity.

If you have a concept for any project involving custom glass or metal work, give me a call. Known as a "problem solver", I enjoy the challenge of each project.

For a more complete vision of the range of past accomplishments, a look at the included portfolio can give you an idea of the possibilities.
