“The term stained glass can refer to coloured glass as a material or to works made from it.
Modern vernacular usage has often extended the term “stained glass” to include domestic leadlight and objets d’art created from lead came and copper foil glasswork exemplified in the famous lamps of Louis Comfort Tiffany.”
Here are some local company’s that sell and restore glass art. If you have any other resources please post a comment or send us an email so we can update this resource list.
Sarah King’s site:
Curran Glass Studio located in Berwyn, outstanding work and restoration
Morava Studio in Oak Park, also very lovely work
Two Fish (Sadly closed its doors in 2011 – they will be missed)
In response to this post we received a very nice note.
…I’m using (this) page. I’m recently retired (as of the end of the 2010-2011 school year). I’m a big arts and crafts girl and I just wanted to commend you on making your page. Since retiring I’ve been getting back into creating stained glass (I’ve even sold a couple pieces) and was looking for some new ideas and tips. Thanks!
If you have a minute take a look at this other article I found earlier… http://www.onlineassociatesdegree.com/resources/the-online-guide-to-stained-glass-and-other-glass-arts/. It explains a lot about stained glass and includes tutorials for beginners as well as inspirations for the more experienced. I think it would be a solid addition to your page if you want to post it for others to see.
Berwyn Historical Society: Thanks Marlene – all feedback is greatly appreciated and it is always great to add more resources to our list.
