Based in Bloomington, Indiana, Little Tiger Glassworks first came about in Toronto, Ontario while Malory was working towards her Masters in Biology. After the acquisition of that degree, she and her husband, Nick, moved back to the Midwest. Now, they're both working towards building a little slice of something in their home state, making art and teaching students.
Malory began her stained glass journey in 2019 when she met a real-life stained glass artist, and realized the art form wasn't exclusively within the domain of 16th century Catholic churches. After a long period of researching, experimenting, and refining, she began selling her work online. Now, with over 100 sales of her original pieces, she has established Little Tiger Glassworks.
Little Tiger Glassworks comes from her childhood nickname, Tiger. With all their ferocity and intensity, they are also known for their lazy and playful personalities. This dualism that embodies the little big-cat mentality resonates with Malory, especially as a scientist/artist. We're all complex, after all, even overgrown housecats.
