The art of handmade glass products is wonderfully diverse. From stained glass windows to hand blown mosaic glass creations, glasswork spans projects large and small, famous pieces and private treasures. For collectors of art glass pieces, communities of skilled artisans are still able to create new, one-of-a-kind works.

Diverse Styles, Techniques, and Endless Possibilities

When you desire an art glass piece for your home, you have a world of options. What is your favorite type of glasswork? Many people are having custom-made stained or beveled glass works installed in their homes, as a way of bringing light into their rooms through their favorite medium.

You'll find that the most well-loved historic windows, like famous church windows and advent windows, are actually made from many diverse art glass techniques. The various types of glass, colors, textures, and types of leading are what give each piece its distinctly unique character. When you choose to commission your own new window, you have a wealth of options.

Choosing between traditional stained glass windows and glass painting, between wonderfully refracting beveled glass or dazzlingly colored mosaic glass, is up to you. It's possible to have remarkable pieces made which exhibit several styles at once. As any capable artisan can tell you, only your imagination is the limit.
