Instructor Dayna Sabatino
Dayna studied stained glass in the Bay Area of California initially at The Stained Glass Garden in Berkeley, where she worked under many talented and established glass artists at the top of their field. Dayna spent 10 years in Oakland and Berkeley eventually teaching courses in glass art, building commissioned works for Artist Sabina Frank, and performing restoration work with Starbow Studios, from small lampshades to large church windows. Dayna was the studio manager at The Institute of Mosaic Art in Oakland, that was then owned and directed by globally known mosaic artist, Laurel True.
After returning to the East Coast (glass tools in tow), Dayna landed in Vermont, married and became a mother. Currently, her family is living on their land in their handmade, off grid home. Dayna has taught stained glass and mosaic technique at art centers throughout New England, including The White River Craft Center in Randolph, VT., Artascope Studios in Yarmouth, ME., ArtisTree Community Arts Center in South Pomfret, VT. and RiverArts in Morrisville, VT. Dayna has collaborated with The Arts Bus.
In 2022, Dayna opened Day Breaks Glass Studio in Bethel, VT, a studio, gallery and supply shop.
