Stained Glass Tips
Stained Glass Art Tips
A building resource from over 100 years of stained
Myths exposed and many "tricks of the trade"
We have decided to create this informative area of
our website to give our perspective on common techniques used
to make stained glass. These instructional pages are reflective
of over 100 years of stained glass family history and experience
throughout the years manufacturing stained glass. Our techniques
have stayed consistent since 1897 with very little change except
for some modifications of hand tools and newer technology.
We will give descriptions of procedures as well as
detailed explanation of techniques used for each phase of stained
glass work. Some of our techniques will seem a little different
than the normal way most hobbyist today have been taught and
will be used for comparison discussion. Modern day "myths"
will be exposed as well as many "pro tips" added
along with "tricks of the trade" within the
following instructional pages.
Plans are being made to include still images as well
as video in the near future.
