Custom Stained Glass Windows are Not Just For Churches Anymore

Stained glass windows production has a rich heritage with time-honored techniques that we take very seriously. The first step is always to establish a design style in consultation with our client that will meet the requirement of the installation location and fit into the decor of the building. The design is important but we must also consider how the window will be viewed. Will it be installed in an exterior entryway with natural lighting, and interior wall with subdued lighting or will the location require artificial LED backlighting? We need to ascertain the possibility of obstructions beyond the window such as trees, roof overhang, buildings close-by, anything that may affect how the light will fall on the window.

The Lead Came Assembly Process – A Time-Honored Tradition

The Glass Menagerie studio technicians are highly skilled in the traditional custom stained glass lead came assembly process that has been used for hundreds of years. The lead channeling must be shaped to fit around each individual piece of glass then it is positioned to match the design. When the entire design has been assembled the lead is soldered and the channels are sealed using cement putty to ensure it is rigid and rattle free.
