Carey Gustafson

Carey Gustafson has spent the majority of her adult life as a stained glass fabricator and designer. Glass Action! is her home studio and line of pop culture-inspired stained glass creations. In addition to being a proud co-founder of Handmade Detroit, she at one time was a touring musician, trailed the pack as vice president of Defying The Law Bicycle Club, threw the yearly creepfest Zombie Dance Party and was the founding music director for the D.I.Y. Street Fair in Ferndale 2008-2010.

Those things were all fun, but now her number one role is artist and Mommy.
