Stained Glass Windows Around The World

When you think about stained glass you probably picture it in the many churches across Europe and the US. Or possibly on old homes around this country and “the old countries” like Ireland, France, and England. That makes sense since stained glass did, in fact, originate in Europe and then quickly spread the US. However, stained glass is not a solely European or American art form. The fact of the matter is stained glass spread from Europe all across the world including places like Russia, South America, and even the Asia. One place where stained glass thrives and whose glass rivals any other in the world is Singapore. In this place, we see towering stained glass windows in startling beautiful chapels and cathedrals. The glass is as colorful and lovely as any we see here in the states or across Europe and something to behold. That’s right, the stained glass in Singapore is breathtaking and below we have listed some of our favorite examples from the myriad and magnificent Singapore stained glass window marvels.

Stained Glass And Houston Weddings:  A Perfect Pair

Weddings are a wonderful time to gather family and friends to celebrate your love for your significant other and make a commitment to one another.  They are also a fantastic way to throw the party of your dreams with all the elements you have dreamed of since you were young. Whether it is the ruby red roses in the bouquet, the whimsical white corsages on the groomsmen, the three-tiered buttercream cake with perfectly piped pansies or a lovely scenic Houston backdrop to say your “I dos”, everything for the day is something to carefully plan to make this day one to remember.  One area of weddings that is seeing an uptick in creativity these days is surely the backdrops at the alters brides and grooms take their vows. Focusing on this small area of the event is a way to get fantastic photos of the special moment when you make the commitment and to tie all the design elements and colors of the entire ceremony together in one micro-space. This is why, at Scottish Stained Glass, we find ourselves doing quite a bit of custom stained glass for weddings, namely antique stained glass windows as a wedding ceremony backdrop.  This is an amazing idea no only for aesthetics and pictures during the ceremony but as a lovely place for family and friends to take pictures in front of all day or evening long. What’s more, these stained glass panels are portable so you can take them to the reception hall with you and, most importantly, after your big day is over, you have an absolutely stunning piece of stained glass to hang in your newlywed home to commemorate the occasion for generations to come! In fact, stained glass is so durable you can pass your lovely stained glass wedding panel down to your grandkids and theirs after that.  For some ideas on what these stained glass panels may look like, explore pictures of some of the very best executed stained glass wedding backgrounds below.

Discovering Utah’s Most Beautiful Stained Glass

Posted October 4th, 2018 by ssgadmin

Stained Glass On Utah Churches

Stained glass has long been a way for church’s to portray religious iconography in lovely ways.  Some even contend the beautiful storytelling done by these windows is something only these windows are able to do and we tend to agree.  It makes sense then that Utah is a hotbed for stained glass on churches since the state as a whole is home not only to Mormon’s but many other religions that appreciate the impact of stained glass.  Stained glass began appearing here in Utah at least as early as 1866 from there spread consistently through the state–even to this present day. Below we have highlighted some of the most remarkable stained glass in the state of Utah for your viewing pleasure.

LDS Church History Museum

Now housed in the the Latter Day Saints Museum this window was originally commisioned in 1892 and is an absolutely lovely depiction of the “First Vision for the Holy of Holies in the Salt Lake Temple” The creation of this window led to several other “First Vision” windows being commisioned from numerous artists for Latter-day Saint meetinghouses.

St. Mary’s Episcopal Church

An absolutely breathtaking depiction of the love an humility of Christ this stained glass masterpiece is housed in Provo, St. Mary’s Episcopal Church.  According to the church website, it is– “rooted in historical Christianity, particularly as it is expressed in the Anglican tradition of scripture, tradition, and reason,” And while that is true it is also a remarkable piece of church history that still looks magnificent at 100+ years old.

B’nai Israel Temple

This window was originally made in 1891 for a new Congregation B’nai Israel synagogue.  This synagogue saw great growth from that point on and the window truly represents the resilience of the Jewish people both here in Utah and abroad. Much like the Jewish people the steadfast stone facade and intricate stained glass windows have weathered time, elements and human intervention.
