Scottish Stained Glass is proud to provide religious communities throughout the state of Wyoming with high quality stained glass windows. We design and create stained glass for all denominations and buildings, including churches, cathedrals, temples, mosques, and synagogues. Our stained glass is created with the highest level of care and precision and therefore is both stunning and highly durable. When you work with Scottish, you will receive windows that can last hundreds of years and provide your members with a beautiful and delightful place of worship.
Scottish Stained Glass recently had the pleasure of working with one of Wyoming’s most charming and passionate religious communities. We were thrilled when the members reached out to us and invited us to be a part of the project for their church. Working with them to create something beautiful and meaningful for their community was a very rewarding experience.
After working out all of the logistical details for the Wyoming project, we began the design process. Accompanied by one of our most talented designers, Martin Faith, the owner of Scottish Stained Glass, traveled to Wyoming where he met with the owners of the church. Our designer then proceeded to draft a series of hand drawings for each of the windows that we would create. About 15 drafts were generated per window before a final design was settled on. We also later journeyed back to the church so the committee could choose glass samples on site.
We understand the value and importance that churches have to the community. Therefore, when we work on religious projects, we put extra heart and effort into our work. The Wyoming project allowed us to exercise both our creativity and technical knowledge. And it gave us the opportunity to create a meaningful relationship with members of the community. In the end, we were able to produce stained glass that would provide the church with beauty and elegance for hundreds of years and bring joy to their members.

Though many people know us for our ability to build new stained glass windows, we’re also able to repair aging or antique stained glass as well. Stained glass remodeling and renovation offers a way to restore worn or damaged glass to its original beauty. But it must be done with a high level of care and precision since glass is indeed a fragile substance.
hile the popularity of stained glass spans centuries, in the last 100 years there has been a resurgence of interest and application of stained glass on homes and churches worldwide. Additionally, even the best stained glass windows, especially in ancient cathedrals, need to be replaced. These two factors open the door for new emerging artists to come into their own and prove themselves masters of their craft. One such church is Grossmünster in Zurich, Switzerland and one such artist is Sigmar Polke.
Sigmar Polke is an acclaimed German painter and photographer. Throughout his career, he is known to have experimented with a variety of materials, styles and subject matter. In the case of Grossmünster church, he used a particularly unique style which appears to be almost a mix of Abstract and Art Nouveau. Material wise, he made the very smart decision to use cross-sections of semi-precious stones, giving the windows a sparkling gem-like quality when hit by the light. All together Sigmar Polke created 13 stained glass windows for the cathedral in Grossmünster church with styles ranging from purely abstract to figurative. As you can see, and as it is widely agreed, the results are stunning.
