Fort Worth Stained Glass
We’re honored to announce our second stained glass project with Altar’d State! Altar’d State is a faith-based clothing retailer with locations nationwide. Each year they open new locations throughout the country, requiring fast, reliable contractors to make each of their visions happen. Their new location in Norwalk, CT features a gorgeous retail stained glass installation that we completed in two weeks. Our team of eight stained glass artisans worked night and day to ensure each curved stained glass panel had the accurate curvature and dimensions.
Altar’d State Stained Glass Project Challenges and Accomplishments
In order to execute these curved stained glass panels, we had to create custom wooden forms for each panel. Positive and negative forms were created so that both sides of the leaded glass could be worked on. We had to cut the glass into certain shapes so that the circular design could be achieved. We had to place an emphasis on design to ensure no cracking would occur during the manufacturing and installation process. The biggest challenge of this project was that we only had two weeks to complete it once we received the final measurements– that included design, manufacturing, shipping, and installation. Our installer flew to Connecticut to meet the stained glass shipment that was shipped in a specially designed crate to ensure the curves were supported. After working all night long to complete the installation, we were delighted that all panels fit perfectly!

Art lovers and stained glass lovers alike can appreciate beautiful stained glass features around the world. Stained glass has served as a medium for centuries, enabling gorgeous historical pieces that can be found in any area of the globe.

These stained glass features range from historical churches to contemporary visions of the present. Here are some incredible examples of stained glass to visit in Europe.
When it comes to stained glass–nearly everybody’s minds go to church. And of course, they do–stained glass is a somewhat ubiquitous feature on churches and chapels around the world. However, stained glass is something that goes well in many locations you may not have even imagined like restaurants, retail stores and, as outlined in this blog–custom homes irght here in Fort Worth. That’s right, stained glass is a fantastic way to take home from plain to 100% your personality. You can use stained glass in any room and have nearly endless colors and styles to choose from! Read below about a couple of ways to add stained glass to your Denver custom home that really makes an impact and expresses your personal style at the same time.
1. Stained Glass Panels: Stained glass panels used to be something that customers came to us in order to get a personalized gift or sometimes a family crest. While this is a great application for stained glass–a stained glass panel can be so much more. Durable and able to be hung anywhere in your Denver custom home, you can get a modern stained glass panel to sit on an entire wall of your home–just look at the amazing entryway panel below!
2. Modern Stained Glass Designs: Stained glass has some fairly old and traditional roots. However, the designers of stained glass today are changing all that and really bringing some exciting things to the table. From Prairie Style throwback pieces that look as modern today as they did 80 years ago to totally new mixed material pieces–a stained glass renaissance is upon us! This means you are able to totally customize a stained glass accent window on your home to take it from cookie-cutter to custom!
3. Stained Glass Lighting: While stained glass lamp shades and lighting fixtures may seem a little outdated–the truth is, when done right they are truly ageless. Take for instance the Tiffany stained glass lampshade that recently sold at auction for 3 million dollars. This lampshade was over 80 years old and as relevant today as it was when it was created so long ago. Therefore, when considering custom lighting, don’t discount the power of an ageless art form used to make your Denver home truly custom.
