Clearly Lovely: Modern Clear Stained Glass

Jun 20, 2012

Clear stained glass is beautiful, clean and elegant. It lets in plenty of light, and unlike its colored counterpart, it doesn't feel old-fashioned. From ancient churches to 20th century architects like Frank Lloyd Wright, stained glass has proved it's a classic that's here to stay.

In addition to beauty, clear stained glass also has a practical purpose. It offers privacy while still allowing much light to pass through. This is true of panels with a high density of bevels, iron work or texture, like the one in Photo 3.
