Stained Glass For A New Century

Generally speaking a lot of people associate stained glass with religious institutions. It is fairly natural to think that way since stained glass can be seen in so many religious settings such as cathedrals, churches, synagogues and even mosques. Another association most people make with stained glass is in home decor from the victorian or craftsman design time period. Actually, many people who own a home built in either of those time periods may have a stained glass window or tow on their home. This can be attributed to iconic designers like Frank Lloyd Wright and The Greene Brothers, who, during the first half of the 20th century, used and forever linked, stained glass in home decor. Since that advent, stained glass has begun to pervaded home style and rightfully so–its popularity has only risen and is just as in vogue today than ever before. At Kansas City Stained Glass, we are proud to continue the work of such design icons, day in and day out, and have a deep appreciation for the strong and lasting impact they had on American home style.
