image 1Evidence of stained glass can be found back to the 10th Century. In the mid 1800's the interest in Gothic architecture created a revival in the use of stained glass. Small pieces of coloured glass were held together with lead. Scenes and details were painted (stained) onto the glass with black and brown paint.

The windows were very often filled with stained glass which added a dimension of colour to the light within the building, as well as providing a medium for figurative and narrative art. Wikipedia

Patterns of stained glass can be divided into the style groups of Art Nouveau, Victorian Geometric, Victorian Floral, Edwardian and the Twenties. Early leading designers were the Pre-Raphaelites, William Morris (1834-1898) and Edward Burne-Jones who set up their own glass works. In America, John LaFarge and Louis Comfort Tiffany, who were part of the Art Nouveau and Aesthetic movements, popularized stained glass by using opalescent glass and produced glass windows, lamps and mosaics.

Leaded glass generally refers to glass held together by lead and then secured within timber, metal or stone framework. After the First World War glass designs became mass produced and less intricate. Scene would depict galleons, flowers and sun bursts
