Welcome to Island Fire Glass Studio

We create unique tropical themed art glass on the beautiful island of St. Croix, in the U.S. Virgin Islands.  We also feature work from other island artists throughout the Caribbean, including paintings, ceramics, sculpture, music and more.  We hope that you enjoy visiting Island Fire Glass Studio online, and that you are inspired to come share our island paradise of St. Croix . . .

Where Welcome Waits



We feature glass art created in St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands by Matthew Fenske

Matthew creates unique blown glass vessels, Christmas ornaments, jewelry, fish, coral and other sea life



The Virgin Islands are home to many talented artists!

One of our main goals at Island Fire is to showcase and sell art from local artists.

We sell original works, prints and cards




The natural beauty of the Caribbean is boundless.  Whether on land, on or under the sea, you are always surrounded by breathtaking scenery.

We showcase the work of several Caribbean photographers, who not only capture the image of these natural wonders; but also the essence of Caribbean island life and culture though images of our people, our history, our buildings and our relationships.

We offer prints, posters and downloadable media



We feature island jewelry makers who create unique tropical adornments using both traditional and contemporary materials

You will find earrings, necklaces and bracelets made from sea glass, blown and sculpted glass, gold, silver and chaney–which is jewelry that is unique to St. Croix and made from collected pieces of broken china that were created and scattered about the island by fierce hurricanes.

China Money, or Chaney, was once used by children as a form of currency. Many pieces can be found that have been chipped into coin-shaped circles. Chaney patterns can be identifiably dated back to 18th century or earlier–some can even be found with manufacturers markings.




From contemporary to more traditional, the islands are full of creative and imaginative people who simply need a place to share their unique talents.  We provide a way for you to discover these local creators and their crafts.

We also provide prints and cards, many of which are created by the same artists and photographers that you will discover by browsing our site.



The Caribbean has a rich musical history.  Calypso, Reggae, Quelbe, Scratch, Soca and many more!  Island Fire will soon be sharing this music with you by download or by purchasing CD’s.
