Fort Worth Stained Glass
Here at Fort Worth Stained Glass, we are part of one of the most proficient stained glass studios in the country–Scottish Stained Glass. This is a point of pride for us and it also means we get to be part of some pretty cool stained glass installations. Of course, each comes with its own set of challenges–but each is also incredibly fulfilling work. We get to transform more than just windows but the lives of the congregants too. One recent example of this is our most recent large installation at St. Andrew The Apostle Catholic Church located in Wray, CO.
The Scope of Our Custom Stained Glass Project
Wray is a small town but this custom stained glass project was a big one. Unlike many of the churches built in this day and age, St. Andrew’s did not have stained glass windows in the sanctuary. The congregation felt like stained glass would make their place of worship feel more like a house of God. They reached out to us with a request for use to create five new, custom stained glass windows on the east side of their sanctuary. We were happy to help and full of ideas because custom work is right up our alley.
Customizing Stained Glass to Be Historically Accurate and Beautiful
The church congregation really wanted a depiction of the five Luminous Mysteries (baptism, wedding, proclamation, transfiguration, and last supper). These tenants were significant to them and made for lovely windows as well. For a job this detailed, custom painted stained glass was our suggestion. We have such a very talented painted glass specialist–Maria–and this was a great job to put her skills to use on. We used actual models to get the poses just right and we also dug deep into our research for historical accuracy like:
- The Appropriate background and foliage for the region
- Authentic tile design for floors in that time-period
- A historically accurate depiction of the town of Cana
The Beauty of Custom Painted Stained Glass
The outcome of our custom, five-panel stained glass project in St. Andrew The Apostle Catholic Church came out gorgeous. We used mostly black and brown paint but pulled color from the glass background. We also harnessed natural sunlight for depth. This created a realistic look to faces, hands, fauna, and flora. The result was an incredible three-dimensional look that was both authentic but stunning as well. The members of the congregation (who watched socially distanced) and in the end were amazed by the artwork. One member even mentioned “Now we have a church”. This statement was such an affirmation of a job well done that makes us love our work in custom stained glass creation.
