Susan Watson Arbital is a stained-glass artist who has been in the business for over 40 years. Her love of stained glass, which began as a hobby in Pennsylvania, quickly became her passion. Watson Arbital has studied under many artists nationwide, and new innovations are never far away. Currently, Watson Arbital is avidly exploring the possibilities of multi-media mosaics, combining her well-honed glass skills with a more recent fascination with stone cutting.  Watson Arbital has worked as a master craftsman, training others in her trade, and does custom designs for patrons out of her studio in West Knoxville. Now semi-retired, Watson Arbital appears at three major shows yearly and teaches at the Knoxville Arts and Fine Crafts Center, University of Tennessee, and Jerry’s Artarama in Knoxville. Her work is available at the Knoxville Museum of Art gift shop and galleries in Tennessee, Kentucky, and Florida.
