Custom Stained Glass Studio Makes Clients’ Dreams into Reality


Every so often, one of our customers approaches us with a very special idea for a custom stained glass design. While much of our business consists of stained glass windows, in this particular case we were asked to make a chandelier for a client’s home.

Take a look at some photos of the finished product here:

This project was quite different to our usual ones in a variety of ways:

  • Our client provided us with a photo of what he wanted, and we were able to reproduce it to his specifications.
  • Instead of small pieces of glass forming intricate patterns, like most stained glass panels, these lamps were made of the most gorgeous hand blown glass slabs. Unfortunately, the photos don’t do this glass justice, but if you look closely you will see the warm honey-gold color and unique, organic swirls of cream running through it.

We had the pleasure of watching the builder at work, when he was constructing the stained glass lamps, and were blown away by the beauty of the glass itself. It looked “lit from within” and that’s before the pieces were assembled and a light bulb was added!

  • Whereas most of the stained glass work we do uses lead caming (those are the thin metal strips that holds the individual pieces of glass together) for this project, we used copper caming, which added a whole other level of class and beauty to the finished light fixtures.

Did you know the famed stained glass company, Tiffany, always used copper foil in their stunning and intricate lamp designs?

This was an exciting project to work on, from start to finish. These chandeliers will doubtless be the focal point of the entire room, and they make a powerful design statement.

However, there was one thing about this project that was no different to any of our other work: When it comes to stained glass windows and doors, every piece we do here at Scottish Stained Glass is custom made to our clients’ specifications.

If you have an idea for a stained glass window, and you don’t see anything like it in our online photo galleries, we will design and build it just for you. Our designers provide a free consultation and can draw out your design on graph paper, to scale, so that you can see exactly what it will look like installed in your windows.

Scottish Stained Glass is the largest studio of its kind in the U.S., and our builders are all well versed in the traditional stained glass making techniques that have been passed down through the centuries, as well as the use of the most modern materials and technologies.

Whatever style, whatever colors or textures, whatever shape or size, we’d love to collaborate with you and bring your exciting idea into reality. Why not contact us today?
