We love finding examples of people doing awesomely creative things with stained glass, so we were delighted to encounter the wonderfully geeky work of self-taught stained glass artist Evan Daniels.

Based in Atlanta, Georgia, Evan’s magnificent windows feature some of our favourite characters from video games such as Metroid, Halo, and Mega Man, superheroes like Iron Man, My Little Pony characters, and even the occasional TARDIS. Head over to Evan’s Etsy shop, MartianGlassWorks, to see more.

By day Michael McLane works as a metallurgical engineer at a steel mill, but by night he’s an artist transforming iconic pop culture imagery into awesome stained-glass lamps. What’s more, he creates these gorgeously geeky objects the same way Louis Comfort Tiffany created his own world famous lamps back in the 1870s — by painstakingly assembling them one piece at a time on a 3D form. Each piece takes between 40 to 60 hours to complete. 

Head over to Wired to learn more about Michael McLane and his awesome lamps. Then check out his new Etsy shop.
