With customers in Kansas City, beveled stained glass is a classic and a popular favorite that never goes out of style. In fact, it is one of our favorite styles of stained glass art, perfect for windows or doors anywhere in a home.

Many Kansas City beveled stained glass lovers know that this glass is not just stunning, it also can be quite practical to add more privacy without blocking the light. It can also block an unappealing view and replace it with something stunning.

But we believe the main appeal for Kansas City of beveled stained glass is the incredible patterns that can be formed with the beveled edges, and the way those edges catch and refract the sunlight into prisms of color.

For those of you who are not quite sure what we’re talking about, or can’t quite visualize it, imagine a cut crystal teardrop hanging in a window. You’ve probably all seen that in a shop or someone’s home. Picture how the facets of the cut piece of crystal refract the light, casting tiny specs of rainbow colored light into the room. It’s rather enchanting, wouldn’t you agree?
