When free time permits he enjoys reading, hiking, listening to early music and following the ups and downs of the Oakland Raiders.

Robert Oless - Robert, father of John, also lives and works in Erie, PA. This hardworking and creative artist has settled on Stained Glass as his favorite medium.

For over ten years he has created a wide variety of Stained Glass pieces ranging from lampshades, miniature houses and animals all the way to an Egyptian pyramid and death mask. Robert usually eschews research and relies on his own imagination when creating his pieces which can be found in our Stained Glass Section.
