Lovely Stained Glass

Stained glass, an artful beauty, has been recently unburdened by its typical Craftsman and Victorian conventions. Now, stained glass is a foolproof way to incorporate instant color and swank value.

A classic art form with a rich history, stained glass really hit its stride in the sixth century when a group of hipster Romans discovered they could mix iron filings with a powdered glass paste to create permanent glass drawings after firing. These glass panes became all the rage in wealthy Roman villas and were later introduced to the common folk through Byzantine art in churches. 

Today, stain glass adorns bathrooms, kitchens, ceilings and home thresholds through feature windows. With the rare ability to let in or diminish light, stain glass is your latest flourish obsession:
