So What is Stained Glass?

Stained glass is a term that refers to both the material of coloured glass and to the art and craft of working with it.
Some people refer to it as stain glass, this is wrong!

As a material the term generally refers to glass that has been colored by adding metallic salts during its manufacture. Painted details and yellow stain are often used to enhance the design. The term is also applied to windows in which all the colours have been painted onto the glass and then annealed in a furnace.

Stained glass, as an art and a craft, requires the artistic skill to conceive the design, and the engineering skills necessary to assemble the decorative piece, traditionally a window, so that it is capable of supporting its own weight and surviving the elements.

Although usually described as stained glass windows the purpose of stained glass is not to allow those within a building to see out or even primarily to admit light but rather to control it. As such stained glass windows have been described as 'illuminated wall decorations'. The glass provides visual clues to the purpose of the building and, in a church, tells the Christian story.
