Ocean Stained Glass was established in 1998 in Seal Beach, California. The company was founded by Karen Tribble and was located on Ocean Boulevard which is where the name came from. Eight years later, in October 2004, the company was sold to Karen Baton and Joni Caryl. Karen spent more then 30 years enjoying the art of stained glass and mosaic. Joni has over 10 years of experience in the craft. Sadly, Karen passed away in 2009 of cancer leaving Joni at the helm for the next couple of years. In March 2012, the company was purchased by a former student, Valerie Evans, who has great respect for the art of stained glass and providing the community with a place to make beautiful creations with their own hands.
