Dealer Spotlight: Sunflower Glassworks

Dealer Spotlight

A Sunflower Blooms in New Mexico

Mary Datwyler has been creating glass art for nearly 20 years, seven of which she has spent as owner of Sunflower Glassworks in Rio Rancho, New Mexico. She founded Sunflower as a full-service glass shop. That means whatever you're interested in -- supplies, classes, finished artwork, or commission work -- Mary and her team have you covered!

Sunflower Glassworks offers a wide variety of stained glass and fusing supplies. They are currently the only glass shop in New Mexico that carries both 90 and 96 COE fusible glass.

Besides supplies, customers can find fished gifts. (Mary is an accomplished studio artist. Her art has been commissioned for churches and private installations and has been featured on HGTV's That's Clever!) Expect to find a wide range of art in the gallery from Southwestern style chili peppers to chic Japanese sushi sets. Find exclusive store coupons on Delphi's Elite Dealers page.

Mary also offers classes at her store for those who want to learn a new craft. Stained glass, fusing and glass jewelry classes are staples at Sunflower. Current classes are filled through December, but a new 2011 schedule will be out soon!

"Owning a glass shop has been a full-time adventure and we've met some really great people and enjoyed some great opportunities along the way," says Mary Datwyler of Sunflower Glassworks. "If you are a customer now, we thank you for supporting local business and value our association with you. If we are about to meet you we're looking forward to it and bid you welcome!"

Sunflower Glassworks is located at 2218 Southern Blvd. Suite 6 in Rio Rancho, New Mexico. They are open Wednesday - Saturday 10am-4pm and Monday - Tuesday by appointment. Call 505-892-0507 or visit them online at Find them through social media: Facebook Sunflower Glassworks.
