Stained Glass uses colored glass which is “stained” or colored by adding various metallic oxides while it is in the molten state. Color is actually part of the glass, produced when these metallic oxides are added to the molten glass during the glass making process. Hence it is ‘stained’ permanently through the manufacturing process, not by coloring it afterwards.

The iridescent colors of stained glass become vibrant when light transmits through it.

Stained glass is known for its unsurpassed ornamental quality and atmosphere creating element.
