A Hidden Piece Of Architectural History in Kansas City

Posted January 11th, 2017 by Martin Faith

Frank Llyod Wright’s Kansas City Masterpiece

At Scottish Stained glass, works of art, stained glass or otherwise, are what inspire us day to day. Take for instance a historical gem hidden deep in one of our largest market cities: Kansas City. Lying low amid a bustling single family home neighborhood is an unassuming but spectacular church building on the corner of 46th street and Main. While the beauty and individuality of the church are evident upon first glance, the very famous architect of this unassuming chapel may not be. When in fact, The Community Christian Church building, in the heart of the Kansas suburbs, was designed by no other than Frank Lloyd Wright himself. The congregation of the church has been around since the 1890’s, but after the destruction of their building by fire, in 1939, the design and construction of this new church building, under the direction of Frank Lloyd Wright, went underway in 1940. His mission “to build the church of the future”, was realized in 1942.

The hallmark design style of the Frank Lloyd Wright is still very evident today. A geometric interior roof paneling and a stylized hallway gate whisper of Frank’s touch.

While the geometric exterior and bold auditorium seats speak more loudly in the distinct design voice of the great American architect.

Although there is no stained glass on the original structure, one can find a lovely piece of Frank Lloyd style stained glass sitting unpretentiously on the square add-on building protruding from the Hexagon section. These windows, although not designed by Wright himself, do justice to his exquisite style. With so much history by such a famous designer, this quiet church will be forever an icon for Frank Lloyd Wright admirers worldwide and a must visit for any true fan of his work.

The Hidden Stained Glass Gem of Santiago de Compostela Cathedral

Posted January 10th, 2017 by Martin Faith

Santiago de Compostela Cathedral’s Stained Glass Masterpiece

Pilgrims on their way to one of the most famous cathedrals in Spain, Santiago de Compostela, are a common sight, especially in the Summer. Whether from piety or a sense of adventure, each year many people in Europe begin a long pre-determined pilgrimage that ends at this mixed era gem of a church. The Santiago de Compostela we see today is very different than the humble chapel first constructed as early as 7th century. Throughout the years the there have been Romanesque, Gothic and even Baroque additions made to the structure. Additions including but not limited to a stunning stained glass window, hidden away in the rich historical church today.

Unlike many churches, there is very little stained glass in the famed Santiago Cathedral. On a small part of the interior, buried deep among the many awe-inspiring architectural features, there is an iconic and gorgeous stained glass window, depicting a holy person on a chair. It towers above the viewer in a majestic manner with no pretense of intimidation, but rather a burst of stained glass magnificence. Because of the scarcity of stained glass features, the window truly stands out and allows the viewer a refreshing change up from the abundant stone and tile work throughout. It is truly a sight to behold and reason enough for one to visit this historically rich church.

Colorado’s Stained Glass Experts

It is small snippets of history like the stained glass in the Santiago de Compostela that inspire us at Scottish Stained Glass.

Denver’s Most Historic Stained Glass Cathedral

Posted December 27th, 2016 by Martin Faith

Beautiful stained glass in Denver, Colorado

Nestled in the heart of the Capital Hill neighborhood, no more than a stone’s throw away from the hustle and bustle of the very modern downtown Denver, is a beautiful relic of past–Cathedral Basilica of the Immaculate Conception. The spires of the cathedral rise high and stoic against the backdrop of Colfax avenue. The contrast of the almost gothic architecture is strange but interesting against the urban backdrop of the Denver city center. This gorgeous Denver landmark is well known to residents. Built from Colorado granite at the turn of the 20th century, it is truly a hallmark of Colorado craftsmanship. Interestingly enough, the church has been struck twice during its nearly hundred year tenure as one of Denver’s most prominent cathedrals but one would be want to see any evidence of damage remaining.

The most remarkable features of the cathedral are arguably the impressive stained glass windows that cover both front and sides of the massive structure. Considered some the finest in the world, there are 75 windows worthy of admiration. The windows were carefully crafted by F.X. Zettler, whose cathedral stained glass window portfolio was vast and well known. He was perhaps most well known for his one-of-a-kind glass colors and dyes. The stained glass on the Cathedral Basilica of the Immaculate Conception was no easy task. It took 50 artisans to craft the windows we see today, as gorgeous now as they were a century ago. By some estimates, the transept window alone would cost over $500,000 in today’s market.

Scottish Stained Glass: Denver’s Stained Glass Experts

At Scottish Stained Glass we have appreciation and respect for beautiful works of stained glass windows in Denver and around the world. We create and repair stained glass on churches, cathedrals, chapels, homes and businesses alike, always with the utmost of care and respect for the historical value.

From the 10th century to the 16th century, the most popular form of pictorial art were stained glass windows. Stained glass from this time period typically featured brilliant red, blue, and green hues, involved techniques such as flashing, and the application of paint and silver stain was incredibly common. Now this style has been mostly abandoned by modern artisans, but the windows created from this time period continue to remain awe-inspiring works of art, attracting tourists and connoisseurs from around the world.

The World’ Most Beautiful Stained Glass Windows Part 4

Posted November 12th, 2016 by Martin Faith

Those who came to the “New World”  brought with  them traditions, styles, and ideas from around the world, creating a wonderful collage of ideas and aesthetics.   Stained glass is one of those elements of style we inherited from across the pond.  Stained glass windows  grace the structure of  many churches in the United States; some even stand out as the world’s finest.  The stained glass in the chapels of the U.S. bear more of  a resemblance to the windows we see in old world Europe, but true to the spirit of the ingenuity of American people, these windows are in a blended style all our own. Take for instance the Windows of the Chapel of Thanksgiving, Dallas, Texas.  The abstract pattern of glass panes is similar in style to those in South America, while the rising spiral is reminiscent or Moorish architecture.   These two seemingly opposite styles blend beautiful and are only further elevated by the use of strongly European colors.

We see a much more traditional chapel stained glass on The Temple Emanu-El in New York City.  On the glass itself, we see patterns and styles that mirror  ancient  Jewish Synagogue art, housed in arches that are familiarly Roman Cathedral-like.  This Temple elegantly reflects the face of the City of New York itself, a beautiful city painted bright by diversity.

 

 

Stained glass is as much a part of the fabric of America as the diversity of people.  While stained glass may mean different things to different religions and people, they are treasures to all and as such must be cherished and preserved.  These truths are something Scottish Stained Glass takes to heart. Since we work in stained glass restoration, stained glass construction, and stained glass repair, we understand the value of these precious relics. We have restored, repaired and built stained glass in Utah and the rest of the United States for decades and our passion for all things stained glass shows. If you are looking for stained glass repair, restoration or construction and live in Park City, Lehi, Summit Park or anywhere else in the Salt Lake City area contact us today for a free consultation.

The World’s Most Beautiful Stained Glass Part 3

Posted November 12th, 2016 by Martin Faith

The Middle East and even some parts of North Africa are some of the oldest still intact windows in the world. As beautiful as they are ancient, they represent stories and sometimes even lessons from different religions.  While the symbols and  religious significance may vary, one common thread in these windows is the intensely respectful  dedication to the art of form; fine craftsmanship being ubiquitous among them.    The tradition of religious stained glass windows being the peak of glass art expression transferred easily to the new world.  South America can make a case for some of the finest crafted stained glass windows the world.   The Cathedral of Maringa in Brazil is a shinning example of an absolutely stunning feat of glasswork work , and one in a markedly different style and tone than that of the old world.  As pictured below, the bright colors seem to rise, almost towering over the viewer in a color pallet akin to the bright foliage of the Amazon River Valley, pulling eyes upward in a prayerful gaze towards heaven.     Another South American stunner, he Santuario Dom Bosco in Brazil, is unlike any other stained glass you have ever seen.  The monochromatic magnificence of the cathedral stained glass windows bathe the chapel in ethereal azure light, giving it nothing less than a deeply moving ambiance.  Again, in the spirit of the new world, this religious stained glass makes use of abstract, almost Picassoesque shapes in sharp contrast to the old world tradition of literal figures.

 

 

Where ever stained glass is found, church, chapel or synagogue, the artistic and spiritual value is there.  These precious works of art and remembrance are of the utmost importance to keeping our history preserved.  These truths are something Scottish Stained Glass takes to heart. Since we work in stained glass restoration, stained glass construction, and stained glass repair, we understand the value of these precious relics. We have restored, repaired and built stained glass in Kansas for decades and our passion for all things stained glass shows.

The World’s Most Beautiful Stained Glass Part 2

Posted November 9th, 2016 by Martin Faith

The stained glass windows in Europe, namely, Italy, France, England and Belgium are truly sights to behold. The colors, texutres and patterns are a hallmark of a bygone gothic and medevil eras. These illuminted works of art tell us a story in ways only the eyes can understand. However, stained glass spans many more centuries and geographies besides Europe. The Middle East is actually home to many awe inspiring works of stained glass housed in mosques. The iconography in these windows in obviously much different but ancient none the less. The Nasir Al-Mulk Mosque, also known as the “pink mosque” is a shining expample of exemplirary age old symbols on stained glass. While the mosque itself was built in the 1800’s the patterns and symbols are some of the oldest on record. As the picture below shows, the mosque includes brightly stained glass in its facade and traditional elements such as the Panj Kāse (“five concaved”) design.

Just as the Nasir Al-Mulk Mosque is known as the pink mosque, the Sultan Ahmed Mosque in Turkey is known, as the blue mosque for much the same reason–blue colored tile surrounding its stained glass. The Blue Mosque, constructed between 1609 and 1616 contains Ahmed’s tomb, a madrasah and a hospice. It is said, at night the mosque is bathed in blue as moonlight from the stained glass windows floods the mosque’s five great domes.

These mosques are wonderful examples of the how stained glass varies from religion to religion and from location to location but it’s breathtaking beauty stays the same. Scottish Stained Glass appreciates the beauty and history of these ancient stained glass windows.

The World’s Most Beautiful Stained Glass Part 1

Posted November 7th, 2016 by Martin Faith

Stained Glass is an age old craft the likes of which have spanned centuries, a variety of religions, and numerous continents such as Europe, Africa, North and South America and even some parts of Asia. This tradition started in earnest over 1000 years ago and some of the ancient stained glass still intact today. The physical creation of stained glass is achieved one of two ways: by adding metallic salts to the silica during manufacturing or painting the color on the glass and then fusing it to the glass in a kiln. The colored glass pieces are then arranged to form patterns or pictures, held together by strips of lead in a rigid frame. The foundation for these techniques came about in Medieval Europe and as such, many breathtaking pieces still reside there. Most commonly these pieces are seen in religious or church settings like the glass in La Sagrada Familia, Barcelona, Spain The artist, Gaudí, made intelligent use of light and shadows, giving one viewing the work a feeling of ascension and joy.

                                     

Pictured below, The Siena Cathedral in Siena, Italy in unquestionably some of the most beautiful and well preserved stained glass from the Gothic era. Brightly colored religious iconography, surrounded by intricate pattern work borders grace the stained glass windows as one of many stunning elements within the cathedral. This intricacy is awe inspiring consider the ancient era in which these windows were built.

The stained Glass in Coventry Cathedral looks like a gateway to heaven itself when gazed upon. Light and color pour through the graphic rectangular window giving the church an almost unearthly glow.

Because stained glass is one of the oldest forms of art, its exact origin is somewhat uncertain. Many people believe that the Ancient Egyptians were responsible for making the first colored glass beads, but it was the Romans that popularized the art back in the first century AD. Though the history of stained glass is somewhat mysterious, there’s no denying that its prominence can most widely be accounted for is its presence in religious sites throughout the world. Many of these windows are so intricate in their design and detail that their near flawlessness is considered by many in the art world to be a miracle.

Religious Stained Glass for Churches and Temples

Posted September 30th, 2016 by Martin Faith
mormon temple lds colorado fort collins stained glass

Churches and temples are important sacred places for religious members and groups for many reasons. They are places where people can gather to worship, receive religious guidance, and deepen their faith. In addition to this, they are also home to some of the most beautiful art and glass work in the world. The religious stained glass that can be found in places of worship is not only known for its stunning and colorful appearance, but also the ability to portray religious values and tell a story of faith.

At Scottish Stained Glass, we enjoy working with religious members from a wide variety of denominations to create religious stained glass pieces that are unique and timeless. In the past, we have completed many projects that involved the design and installation of stained glass windows, entryways, transoms, and more for churches, temples, mosques, and synagogues. Our most recent project involved manufacturing the stained glass windows for the Fort Collins Colorado LDS Temple.

Our Most Recent Religious Stained Glass Project

We were honored to be chosen as the preferred stain glass company for the temple in Fort Collins. From the very start, we were determined to create religious stained glass windows that were absolutely flawless and could stand the test of 1,000 years time. The project took approximately two years to complete, during which time we worked closely with members of the LDS Church, construction company, and other general contractors.

In the end, we were able to create over 50,000 pieces of individual glass, including 400 stained glass pieces. The design process took about 6 months and the next 18 months were spent on manufacturing and installing the glass. During this time, we encountered many challenges but were over to overcome them by working as a team with our partners on the project. We were able to accomplish such tasks as creating a new, customized color of glass, constructing colored glass bevels, and fitting stained glass pieces into customized frames that were being built simultaneously.

In addition to a custom design, the stained glass windows for the Fort Collins Colorado LDS Church were constructed for optimal durability and energy efficiency. To achieve this effect, we used Low-E safety glass on the outside of the window. The windows were also created to provide a high level of privacy while still allowing for adequate sunlight to enter the room. In the end, we were able to pass the many rounds of inspection conducted by the Church without a single flaw being identified in our glass work.

Timeless Religious Stained Glass Designs

Churches, temples, and other religious sites are incredibly important to the members who choose to worship there. Now you can allow for the physical appearance of your building to reflect your religious values and beliefs by opting for a gorgeous religious stained glass design.

How Stained Glass Can Add Value to Your Dallas Home

Posted September 14th, 2016 by Martin Faith

Often when people choose to sell their home, they remodel certain aspects of it before putting it on the market. This is because custom and modern fixtures can help increase the resale value of a property and, in turn, make buying a new home an easier, more financially comfortable process. Adding a new stained glass installation to your Dallas home can drastically enhance its curb appeal and give it a more competitive edge on the housing market.

<!–more–>

Impress Potential Buyers with Custom Stained Glass for Your Dallas Home

While new appliances are certainly a good idea if you’re planning on selling your home, they’re also pretty standard and are already expected by most buyers. What will really make your home stand out and impress potential buyers is a custom designed, hand-crafted installation. Stained glass is a perfect option for your Dallas home because it can:

  • Increase the appraisal value of your home
  • Make your home more attractive to potential buyers
  • Enhance your existing architectural design
  • Provide a higher level of privacy for increased comfort
  • Create a look of elegance and refined taste

Things to Consider for Your Stained Glass Design

Before you decide on a specific style or appearance for your stained glass, you may want to consider a few things such as:
1. How long do you plan to stay in your home? If you plan on settling down for several years in your home, it’s perfectly appropriate to create a design that appeals specifically to you. However, if you plan on selling your home, you may want to opt for a more modern, generic style of stained glass.
2. Do you plan on redesigning your home in the future? Sometimes people like to install colored stained glass to match the interior design of their home. But if you think you may change things around in a few years, you may want to consider installing a clear stained glass window instead.
3. What level of privacy are you hoping to achieve? If a high level of privacy is important to you, then you may want to opt for a textured stained glass installation. Textured glass can significantly reduce how well outsiders can see into your home. Or, if you really like the look of clear glass, adding a bevel cluster to your fixture may create the elegant appearance you desire.

Consult the Professionals at Scottish Stained Glass

Whether you have a particular look in mind for your stained glass or would like some advice for your design, we can provide you with the services you need. The experts at Scottish Stained Glass are here to help you create the perfect stained glass installation for your Dallas home. Call us today to get a beautiful piece of art.

Park City Entryway & Sidelight Stained Glass

Stained glass can truly light up Park City Utah homes’ entryways, giving them privacy, elegance, and uniqueness. In many Park City developments, the homes exteriors, including their entryways, are very similar. Décor lovers are always looking for ways to add more curb appeal and distinguish their homes from the rest, adding their own personal stamp.

With custom stained glass designs, Park City entryways can become as distinctive and gorgeous as their owners desire. When it comes to entryway stained glass, it is usually the sidelights on one or both sides of the front door that are done in stained glass, as well as the transom window above the front door (if any) and sometimes even the front door itself. With stained glass in the front door, more light can come through into the home or office’s foyer, hallway, or entryway, an area that is frequently rather dark.

Beautiful sidelight stained glass

Stained glass sidelights are one of our favorite and most popular commissions. We’ll tell you why. In our twenty years of experience, we have never seen any other home improvement that makes such a huge and gorgeous change to a home’s entryway as stained glass. Of course, if we do custom stained glass for your sidelights on either side of your front door, you know we are going to suggest adding a stained glass panel or two right into the front door itself. That’s because sidelights are placed in an entryway to add light into what might be a rather dark part of a home. And with the inserts in the door, even more light can be added, along with a regal and elegant look.
