Stained glass artist introduces new gallery in Seaside
A ‘little art haven’
opens in Seaside
By Katherine Lacaze
Seaside Signal
A new art gallery offers a
tinted window on the world
on Broadway in Seaside’s
Historic Gilbert District.
Artist Kathy Kathman, a
recent transplant from Ta-
coma, Wash., held a soft
opening for her stained
glass gallery, Vetrata Doni,
July 3.
Kathman’s job as an ac-
countant ended last Octo-
ber. “I’m not going to wait
until I’m 65 to live at the
beach,” she said.
It is not unlike her, she
added, to occasionally
“throw things up in the air”
to see where they land.
With that philosophy in
mind and several years of
experience in stained glass
creation under her belt, she
moved to Seaside in May
and opened Vetrata Doni,
which translates to “stained
glass gifts” in Italian.
Located at 810 Broad-
way in the newly renovat-
ed Salmon Berry Square
Building, her shop is in “a
great shopping strip,” she
said. When she of¿ cially
opened her doors, the es-
At the newly opened Vetrata Doni stained glass gallery and
studio on Broadway in Seaside, patrons can take classes and
learn how to make stained glass creations on their own.
Kathy Kathman, the owner of Vetrata Doni stained glass gallery and studio, shows a piece she
made that depicts Sally and Jack Skellington from “A Nightmare Before Christmas.”
tablishment was a work in
progress but is now on its
way to becoming “a little art
haven,” Kathman said.
As for Seaside in gener-
al, she had visited for many
years and enjoys the area.
Already it “feels more like
home,” she said.
Kathman’s 30 years of
experience as an accountant
makes handling the opera-
tional side of her business
second nature, which al-
lows her to instead “focus
on playing,” she said.
About the art
After taking stained glass
classes about three years ago,
Kathman started creating
work on commission.
Her gallery carries her
own work and features de-
signs from Opal Art Glass, a
glassblowing studio and gal-
lery in Cosmopolis, Wash.
She teaches at the gallery, and
is contemplating an artist-of-
the-month feature.
When working on com-
mission, she collaborates
with her client to pick out a
pattern and make adjustments
to ¿ t their needs and pref-
erences. Besides glass, she
uses lead came, copper foil or
solder to construct the pieces.
Sometimes she will incorpo-
rate seashells or other small
ornaments, imparting a beach
À air be¿ tting of the store’s lo-
Kathman said she likes the
copper foiling technique be-
cause it allows for more À uid-
ity and an organic feel, good
for images of plants, animals
and people. Smaller pieces
offer the opportunity for de-
tail work.
Kathman provides a vari-
ety of frames for her work, so
the frame matches the same
theme or genre as the piece
itself. The cost for each work
is based on the size, quality
and variety of glass used, de-
tails and hours spent to com-
plete the project. Kathman
described her glasswork as “a
work of love.”
“I’m not going to get rich
off of it, but I get to live at the
beach, and there are no bad
days at the beach,” she added.
Kathman also can perform
repairs for broken or dam-
aged pieces.
Learn the craft
Kathman offers classes
to an intermediate level at
the Vetrata Doni studio and
gallery. “For most people,
if you can get that far in a
class, you’ll keep going and
keep perfecting the craft on
your own,” she said.
Stained Glass for Beginners
class choose from pre-se-
lected pieces that can be
done in two to three hours,
making them doable for
visitors and residents alike,
Kathman said.
The classes are geared
toward participants 17 and
older. Class size is lim-
ited. Prices includes all
necessary materials and
use of tools. For more in-
