Featured Modern Leaded Glass Project: Altar’d State Boulder


Scottish Stained Glass is honored to have been chosen to manufacture and assemble the complete leaded glass storefront in addition to interior leaded glass features in Altar’d State’s newest location in Boulder. Altar’d State is a faith-based national retailer with over 100 boutiques throughout thirty states. Altar’d State is renowned for its branded unique fashion experience that’s illuminated through gorgeous, modern stained glass displays in many of their locations. With a powerful mission behind their retail experience, Altar’d State prioritizes giving back to the community through child sponsorships, team volunteer work, and charitable giving. Partnering with such an illustrious, philanthropic¬†organization was a really special experience and we’re humbled to have contributed to their specialized shopping experience.

Contemporary Leaded Glass Features: Manufacturing and Assembly

Our team of stained glass artisans worked hard to complete the scope of this project within the strict timeline given. Once Altar’d State obtained their permits, we had exactly three weeks to complete the entire leaded glass project before the installation deadline. The project was comprised of a complete leaded glass storefront, a 12-foot privacy leaded glass interior feature, as well as an 8-foot leaded glass rotunda ceiling feature. All three components totaled 400 square feet of custom leaded stained glass. Since the storefront didn’t exist yet, we had to build all of the leaded glass features based on the given plans and dimensions.

One of the more technical aspects of this project was the curved leaded glass components. We had to calculate the exact radius of each curved leaded glass feature in order to make two proper molds for each piece. With such a limited time frame, we had no room for error. Each piece had to be created perfectly according to the given dimensions. Our 15-person team worked diligently and precisely and when it came it installation time, all leaded glass pieces fit perfectly.

Installation Process and Final Result of Our Contemporary Leaded Glass Project

Working alongside numerous other contractors and designers, we all simultaneously came together to create this incredible store from the ground up. While our team meticulously installed each piece of leaded glass, others were installing copper cladding and metal framing. As we pieced together the leaded storefront, designers were creating interior clothing displays and organizing inventory. The entire production worked seamlessly together to accomplish something that looked like it should’ve taken months.

The 12-foot leaded glass feature was installed directly in front of the dressing rooms to provide a beautiful focal point while also offering privacy. Altar’d State had customer-written prayer books turned into custom wallpaper that adorned the walls behind our leaded glass, providing a stunning contrast. On the other side of the 12-foot leaded glass feature, we installed the 8-foot leaded glass dome as a rotunda feature. With lighting incorporated into the center of the leaded glass dome, an almost angelic feel transcends the space.
