Rhonda De Matteis &
Rhonda DeMatteis and her fiancé
Marvin Howard work together to
create unique art pieces combining Fused
Dichroic Glass, Exotic woods and copper. They
own and operate Penland Road Studios. Their work is influenced by the beautiful colors in nature in the Western North Carolina Mountains. Marvin is from Tennessee and has brought his 30+ years of experience in Home Building and carpentry into the world of fine woodworking. Some of his specialties are tables, benches, jewelry boxes and one of a kind cutting boards. Rhonda is from Central Florida and has worked in various mediums but loves the way light plays off of the seemingly endless color palette in dichroic glass. Rhonda creates wall art as well as freestanding glass pieces, earrings and pendants.
