Stained glass artist and restoration specialist, Bonnie Hook, has been designing, restoring and fabricating for over 30 years. In addition to collaborating with fine artists, interpreting and translating their designs into a “glass canvas,” Hook executes her own design for private clients and institutions.
Known for her signature hand-designed style as well as for her curated glass selection, Hook is also trained in the fine art of glass painting. Her design work includes original custom windows, cabinetry, and entryways. In addition to private homes, her work can be seen in installations and sanctuaries throughout the tri-state area, such as the Picatinny Arsenal Chapel and the First Memorial Presbyterian Church (both in Dover), St. John’s Episcopal Church in Boonton, Hackettstown Hospital, and the Baltusrol Golf Club in Springfield. Hook’s commitment to creating and preserving history is evident in a portfolio that includes restoration of original work by Louis Comfort Tiffany, Benjamin Sellers, and Frank Lloyd Wright.
Hook has taught classes in stained glass, lectures on the art of stained glass restoration, and owns Georgia’s Stained Glass Werks in Rockaway, NJ, a business she developed with her late mother, stained glass artist Georgia Van De Velde.
