We have experience working with all major stained glass styles, but the majority of our work is based on only a handful of historic and contemporary styles.
The most popular historic glass styles for the Dallas Fort Worth region include Tiffany Stained Glass, Frank Lloyd Wright Stained Glass, Mackintosh Stained Glass, and Prairie Style Stained Glass.
Tiffany glass is based on the extraordinary work from the master artisan, Louis Comfort Tiffany who worked in Fort Worth and throughout the country near the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th century. His glass if famous for the use of natural colors variations in the stained glass to create natural looking and spectacular windows. Frank Lloyd Wright and Prairie Stained Glass are based on the design style popular in the western United States, including Fort Worth during the early part of the 20th century. They include the use of glass with earth tone colors and geometric shapes.
Mackintosh Stained Glass was made popular by the many Scottish and Welsh who’ve moved into the Dallas/Fort Worth region over the centuries. Focusing on abstract geometric representations mostly natural mediums, Mackintosh is especially famous for his rose.
While these historic styles are in historic and craftsman style homes, more modern homes in Fort Worth use what we call Contemporary glass styles. In general terms these styles rely heavily on beveled and textured glass, but include very little, if any, colored glass. Because consumer tastes change so often, we find that the contemporary, clear glasses, with traditional or celtic bevel cluster is a perfect compliment to most entryways or bathrooms, remaining beautiful and appropriate, regardless of what paint or carpet colors are used around it.
