Beautiful Stained Glass Styles for your Home or Building
Our company specializes in creating custom designed stained glass. While all of our work is completely original and is designed by gifted local artists, we often incorporate elements of traditional stained glass styles into our designs. The scope of our work ranges from classic to contemporary and incorporates various aesthetics and motifs.
Contemporary: Sophisticated and elegant, contemporary stained glass is an alluring choice for any style of home. Contemporary styles of stained glass are highly versatile, which makes them easy to incorporate into any type of décor or architectural style. While there are many different design options for contemporary stained glass, among the most popular in this category include beveled glass, leaded glass, Mission, and colorless glass designs.
Traditional: Traditional stained glass styles are known for their brilliant colors and eye-catching designs. Traditional stained glass styles are often bold and striking in appearance, which makes them the perfect option for establishing a focal point in a room or highlighting a certain architectural feature. There are countless different traditional styles of stained glass, but some of the best known are Prairie, Celtic, Art Deco, Mackintosh, and Greene & Greene.
Hand-Painted: Painted portraits and landscapes look stunning when rendered in stained glass. As the sunlight filters through the varying colors and textures, the details of the painted design are brought to life and are given a very realistic look. Our artists are masters at hand-painting stained glass, and they can replicate any scene, photograph, or image with incredible accuracy.

Located on the corner of Greenwood Avenue and Cameron Street near downtown Tulsa, Oklahoma is one of the oldest and most historically significant buildings in the United States. The Vernon African Methodist Episcopal Church is the only building to have survived one of the worst race massacres in American history and is a visual reminder of the reconstruction process.
On May 31st, it will have been 100 years since this terrible incident occurred. The events which took place on May 31st and June 1st of 1921 resulted in the destruction of a once vibrant and affluent African American community in Tulsa referred to as “Black Wall Street.”
When a mob of angry white people came tearing through the neighborhood, black residents of the community were forced to flee their homes in order to escape the terrible violence. Historians estimate that approximately 300 people were killed and another 10,000 were left homeless.
During this time, some members of the community were able to find safe harbor in the basement of the Vernon A.M.E Church.
Recently, Scottish Stained Glass had the honor of being able to complete the restoration of the historic stained glass windows in the church. Below, we’ve discussed the restoration project in detail.
One of our favorite parts of the job here at Denver Stained Glass is definitely giving our customers back their lovely stained glass windows when we do restorations or rebuilds. It is wonderful to see the joy that restored stained glass brings to churches, synagogues, historic homes, and, like in this case, universities. As part of the Scottish Stained Glass family, we are lucky enough to take part in restoring stained glass masterpieces regularly. Like the window as Sam Houston State University–lost to a fire.
Replicating Sam Houston State’s Historic Stained Glass Window
Sam Houston State University is one of the oldest in Texas–founded in 1879. Its original design included a lovely stained glass window. This window was iconic to the school but was sadly destroyed in a fire (1982) that ravaged one of the main original buildings. SHSU decided to commemorate their school motto “The measure of a Life is its Service, through replicating the original stained glass. They entrusted us with the charge–and we were truly honored to be a part of preserving the legacy of such an amazing organization.
The First Challenge of Restoring Sam Houston State University’s Lost Stained Glass
By far the biggest challenge of this job was the fact that our team was creating a replication from very little. It is important to us to always deliver the respect these cherished stained glass pieces deserve through accurately restoring or recreating. With only a picture from a 1962 yearbook to guide their way, they began first by recreating the design using modern technology.
We first scanned the picture into the computer and painstakingly traced each line. After that, we scanned the drawing into our design software for perfect proportions to the original then double the size per request of the university.
The Second Challenge of Restoring Sam Houston State University’s Lost Stained Glass
The second issue was one of sourcing materials used over a century ago. The materials from that era simply did not exist. This meant finding the exact colors would be a challenge. We came up with a brilliant solution to this. We first tapped our conservation specialist to find glass in colors that were as close as possible to the originals. Next, we had our painted stained glass artists paint over the colors to make them exactly match the original hues. While the materials were not original the final look was exact!
The Results of the Recreated Commemorative Stained Glass Window
All in all, over ten layers were used to create accurate shadowing and depth and this lovely commemorative window has about 3,000- 4,000 pieces the university staff, board, and students were absolutely delighted with the final product and honestly–we were too! We’re always so proud when we can be part of an amazing project to restore and preserve history for generations to come.
