Stephanie Fassler is an art glass master craftswoman who has spent a lifetime as an artist in glass. Her studio is in Melville, Johannesburg. She has a well-established, top reputation, most particularly for her work in stained glass. She creates and makes inspired stained glass windows, chandeliers and lamps.   Her commissions are numerous and her work is to be seen in churches, schools and chapels in Johannesburg and Cape Town as well as in private homes of Johannesburg.

There is a magnificent pair of windows recently commissioned by the University of the Witwatersrand for the foyer of the Senate Room of Wits. Her work is also to be seen in St Columbus Church, Parkview and at St Mary's School (Waverley ) Chapel.
