Stained-glass artist Neile Cooper is crafting her dream space: a woodland cabin with walls and a ceiling composed completely of her meticulous stained-glass designs. The cabin is nestled in the pine and maple trees behind her home on a quiet residential street in Sparta, New Jersey.
Neile devoted a summer to collecting 45 old windows to salvage. Her mother helped source the majority of the windows from Craigslist and car boot sales. Her boyfriend's father helped her custom-build the frame of the cabin to hold the salvaged windows. Together, they built the entire cabin (which measures 8-feet wide by 12-feet long by 10-feet tall) to be a simple and airy space that lets in the changing light of the day and colours of the seasons.
