Frequently Asked Questions About Stained Glass
The following are a few frequently asked questions in regards to stained glass.

How much does stained glass cost?
The cost of stained glass depends on many different factors. Size is a major factor, as is the creation method and the design being created. Custom pieces will cost more. Keep in mind that something like a stained glass window is permanent, so the quality of the work should contribute most to your decision. Be sure to check this website for stained glass creators and previous customers' reviews.

What kinds of stained glass are available?
Stained glass is traditionally colored glass panels that are arranged into pictures or patterns. Glass can also be etched, frosted, or specially cut to create beautiful designs. Many methods of crafting stained glass are the same or similar to the methods used many years ago, which means that even very old stained glass images can be reproduced in the same way they were originally done.

Where can I put my stained glass?
Stained glass is most easily installed when it is incorporated into a building’s design. This assures proper space, support, and an ideal location for the decorative piece. Stained glass can also be used to replace preexisting windows, or you could have room made for it in a wall or a door. If construction is not possible, remember that you can easily add a stained glass lamp or sun catcher to your home.

How difficult is stained glass to care for?
So long as upkeep is consistent, caring for stained glass is simple. In some cases, glass cleaner applied to a dry cloth is all that is required. Other types of stained glass will need to have wax applied and then removed after a few minutes. All stained glass should be regularly wiped with a clean, dry cloth. Never use harsh chemicals or abrasive materials on stained glass or its hardware. Consult with the maker of your stained glass item before performing any upkeep. Protective glazes or even a sheet of plate glass can help keep the exterior of your stained glass clean and safe.

Stained glass windows are most often used in church construction, but can also be used for different kinds of organizations and in private homes. If you are interested in installing stained glass panes in your home, or in those placed in nearby churches, you could ask various questions both about how this kind of decor has been developed over time, and how it is installed in the modern era.

  • When was the craft of stained glass first developed?
    While humans have colored glass for ornamental purposes going back to an early point in history, stained glass stretches back about a millennium. Originally, the patterns used almost exclusively represented Biblical tales. The value of stained glass, then, was to make up for the rarity of literacy among most church attendees at the time. The artistry of this design field accompanied the power of the medieval Catholic Church, which possessed the resources to create glass panes large enough for Gothic cathedrals.

  • How is blown glass made available for stained glass designs?
    Some different types of stained glass, in terms of how it is manufactured, include crown, flashed and cylinder. In addition, "tabling" or "rolling" stained glass involves flattening out molten sheets in a way similar to rolling out dough.

  • What is beveled glass?
    This technique, as applied to a wide range of materials not limited to glass, involves smoothing down the edges of panels. After glass has been blown, the pieces can be separated and fitted into the overall pattern of a complete window. When used for glass, the resulting window could be stained, or given a different design, according to the owner's artistic preferences.
