What a creative way for a small town to honor and highlight its agricultural heritage! It's well worth the time it takes to stop by and check it out if you're passing through.

Certainly an oddity. Who would think to combine stained glass and farm machinery? Best seen at night when it is illuminated.

Who needs to go see a giant ball of twine when you can get up close to stain-glass windowed combine in sleepy little Reedsburg? Yep, 39 colorful panes of glass light up the machine as it sits in the middle of a vacant lot adjacent...More

This is a unique piece of art that has something for everyone. From it being a piece of retired farm equipment to its incredible stained glass panels. The panels go from far scenes to Batman and Robin. Like I said it has something for everyone....More

We’ve got both artists and farmers in our family, so this one really hit home for us. “Ruminant” is a piece of harvesting equipment covered in agriculturally-themed stained glass panels that are lit up from behind at night. It's a tribute to farmers – and...More
