Stained Glass For Homes
Stained Glass Windows As Art
Often times when people think about stained glass they associate it with churches right off the bat–and that makes sense since stained glass is practically ubiquitous to cathedrals, churches, synagogues and even mosques. Likely, stained glass is next most associated, in people’s minds with the victorian or craftsman eras of design. Anyone who owns a home built in either of those eras in fact probably has antique stained glass somewhere in their house already. This is in large part due to the fact that, during the mid to early 20th century designers like Frank Lloyd Wright and Greene and Greene, made the connection in American’s minds between home decor and stained glass. This ushered in a happy “new” tradition in modern stained glass design that continues in decor. At Denver Stained Glass we thrilled each day to carry on the work of design masters such as Frank Lloyd Wright and others who had such incredible influence on the path of stained glass and what we see on homes today.
