Stained Glass is a pleasurable art and craft. It is a hobby for many, and an art for the few. Stained glass is often used in the making of windows and lampshades, but is also useful for boxes, clocks, cabinet doors, picture frames and other 3-dimensional projects.

Welcome to this ever-growing informational website. New material is added on a regular basis. You may peruse the new section on stained glass careers, traditional glass painting, lead came construction, with video support, and detailed step-by-step photography.

We hope to offer a learning experience that is fresh, different, and more literary than the dry, magazine form that lists more equipment than you need, and insists on lenghty warnings about safety. Safety is important, and we have it all tucked away in one section, so as not to bore you.

Art of Stained Glass has a new menu bar on the left. If you exprience problems with it, kindly email the details of your browser version: EMAIL.
