Leaded stained glass windows bring to mind the glories of the great gothic cathedrals. Utilizing the fabulous color and line that taught the stories of the bible to the congregations of the Middle Ages, we are creating today's traditional styled masterpieces. The same handpainted leaded technique is used today by our staff of 13 highly skilled glass painters to create a special comforting atmosphere for our houses of worship and to bring our unique artistry to secular buildings and homes.
Faceted glass windows are raw, thick, unpainted glass with deep color and shimmering sparkle. The bold design is created by control of the size and shape of the glasses and the shape and width of the dark matrix. It is a creative mosaic of light. As in all art, faceted windows can be well designed, exciting and vibrant, or they can be trite and dull. The skill and sensitivity of our designers and craft artisans assure that each of our faceted windows is a work of fine art worthy of your building. You haven't really experienced the possibilities of faceted glass until you have seen our faceted glass windows.
For the architect and building owner who desire the ageless beauty of detailed traditional leaded stained glass but have a limited budget, we can develop similar faceted stained glass designs at a fraction of the cost. Through skillful manipulation of the negative area of the matrix, the impression of complex traditional tracery and detailed classical design can be obtained.
Exciting changes are taking place as architects, building owners and designers are exploring new possibilities in stained glass design to complement and enhance today's architecture. With a strong emphasis on the inherent beauty of the wide palette of glasses available today, our designers and artisans are developing new contemporary windows that will become the classic windows of tomorrow. The marriage of color and line, often presented in startling juxtaposition, brings ever-changing light and shadow into the building. We have a passion for the creative solution to the challenge of contemporary structural design!
Perhaps the most exquisite offering we can bring to your project is the Sculptured Gold window by Willet Hauser. This exclusive technique has certainly enhanced our reputation as the leader in American Stained Glass.
The Sculptured Gold window is created with very special care and craftsmanship.

All of the sculpture and the lead are then covered with 23-karat gold leaf. You have to personally view a Sculptured Gold window to fully appreciate the magnificence. This fabulous window is beautiful during the day and spectacular at night.
