Theodore Ellison

Theodore Ellison

Ted Ellison handcrafts leaded glass into period-inspired architectural windows and lighting, influenced by the Arts & Crafts tradition. He works with homeowners, architects and designers to create one-of-a-kind original designs with great attention to detail. As stated on his website at, "Through good design and innovative fabrication, Theodore Ellison Designs proudly offers a refreshing approach to this 800 year old art." Ted is a member of Artistic License, a San Francisco guild of architects, designers and craftspeople dedicated to preserving the quality and integrity of traditional building crafts.

Interestingly, he is also a self-described "faux magician" named Stallion. You must check out his website,, which is completely over the top. Considering all of the theories and literary references I've run across characterizing peddler women as gypsy fortune tellers and potion-toting witches, I love the idea of this particular craftsman's alter-ego.
