Roger B. Long, owner and artisan, is a life-long resident of Wartburg, Tennessee in East Tennessee. With a background in woodworking, carving, and stained glass of over 30 years, he strives to design and create unique works of art for enjoyment and enlightenment. Growing older, he realized that one of the gifts granted to him by his Creator, was the ability to “see” the various works of art in his mind before actual construction began. In line with his Christian beliefs, the name of this venture was a natural selection of “SOLA FIDE” which translates BY FAITH ALONE, which is how we approach our life and work.
Your project will be custom designed by the artist, and fabricated in our studio located in east Tennessee. There is no “outsourcing” of our work. We pride ourselves on being a “part” of our creations. We hope you will enjoy them as much as we do!
Nestled in the rural, mountainous region of East Tennessee, atop the Cumberland Plateau, Wartburg is a small town of German descent appropriately named after the Wartburg Castle in Eisenach Germany. It is here that SOLA FIDE Stained Glass and Woodworking first began. Being of Lutheran belief, and German descent, it was only appropriate that I pursued the two areas of my talent and interest.
