What Is Modern Stained Glass?

There are many ways stained glass can be styled, and artisans are getting more creative now than ever. Stained glass is an ancient art, with some of the oldest pieces being featured in Catholic churches, Victorian mansions, and palaces of Europe. Modern artists are combining the best features of traditional stained glass with a new twist to create delightful new pieces that could never before be imagined.

UK-based artist Flora Jamieson creates modern stained glass pieces inspired by graphic design, nature, organic forms, and geometry. She fuses her tastes which are more contemporary with the traditional art of stained glass to create colorful and cheery art like this one of birds and animals on a tree. Her favorite part of the stained glass crafting process is “selecting just the right tones and shades so that they sing out next to each other.”
