Chester John and Elissa Beach...
After retiring from programming careers with IBM, they looked for a community with healthy artist associations. Wimberley fit the bill plus it was a wonderful place to live! Chester and Elissa moved to Wimberley February 2015 and opened Silo Glass Labor Day weekend.
They have 13 years of combined experience creating glass art. After many years of collecting glass, Chester was ready to take on the role of artist. His love of experimenting led to him having created his own style along with several unique techniques. Elissa loves working with color and light, she has found it to be a most fulfilling aspect of using glass as a medium.
