Stained Glass

Stained glass, a form of  painting over 1000 years old, became popular in Western Europe during the Gothic and Renaissance periods (1100-1500's). Today stained glass is more commonly referred to as Art Glass but the methods of creation are still nearly identical to those used in the late Middle Ages.

The process of painting on glass with a mixture of  iron oxide, ground copper, and powdered colored glass, then firing it in a kiln fusing the paint to the glass, creates artwork that is impervious to wear from the sun and will never fade over time.
