Ed’s career in glass spans 40 years. Many Myrtle Beach and Conway churches have windows designed and created by Mr. Streeter. He has educated hundreds of students in the art of stained glass. Most notably, he has taught glass blowing classes for the past seventeen years. Although much of his time is spent managing Conway Glass, his passion is creating glass art. He now focus his creative energy on creating stained glass windows and blown glass commissions.
Sharing their passion for glass, Ed and his wife and partner, Barbara enjoy creating blown glass vessels, ornaments, vases and mixed media sculpture in their hot glass studio. They have worked together as a glass blowing team for the past 20 years.

Little’s brick manufacturing plant (now demolished), Aberdeen Manufacturing Company, McIver-Shaw Lumber Company, Horry County Ice Company, and the Creel Oil and Gas Company c.1903 (now Conway Glass).” ~ South Carolina Department of Archives
“Like most communities in the post World War II era, Conway, South Carolina grew in all directions with new neighborhoods developing on its outskirts and new houses replacing many of the old in established areas. The largest new developments, Pineview and Mayfair, were sited on the northeast side of town along McKeithan Street, Fifteenth Court, Fifteenth Avenue, and Fourteenth Avenue and arose around 1950. A string of industrial complexes along the railroad tracks on Lakeside Drive spurred the development of these small, workers’ cottages. The houses are generally one-story, frame construction and Minimal Traditional in style with a projecting front gable and little or no detailing. There are approximately twenty-six homes in these neighborhoods that are over sixty years old. Many others will reach this age in just a few years.” ~ South Carolina Department of Archives
