For a less permanent solution

For a less permanent solution

Why would someone commission a piece of stained glass that is meant to be hung, as opposed to installed permanently into a window or door? Perhaps they are looking for something less permanent. Hanging stained glass panels are usually hung on chains, from hooks, so they are easily moved.

With hanging stained glass, you can have a small, exquisite custom-designed piece that you can hang wherever in your home you’d like it. Hanging stained glass makes a fabulous gift, and the recipient can decide where they would like it. It’s a great present for a housewarming, a first apartment, or any time you want to give a custom gift, something unique and memorable, that your “giftee” will truly appreciate for years to come.

And if you redecorate or decide to move, your hanging stained glass can go with you or be easily rehung in another part of the house.

Here’s another reason why our Fort Collins clients like hanging stained glass. It is because they love antique stained glass, but the panels are not really the correct size to be installed in any of their windows. But they can still purchase the piece and use it as a hanging panel. It can be in front of a window, or hanging on the wall, or even hanging in an empty space above a pass-through or half wall in a home.

We have even had clients who commission hanging stained glass for their patio, back yard, or deck. Where in your home or office do you envision hanging stained glass?

As with all the custom stained glass we do on commission, we will create your hanging stained glass panel to your specifications. That means whichever style you want: Art Deco? Celtic? Mission Style? Something thoroughly modern? A floral pattern? And your hanging stained glass will also be designed in the pattern you want, using the types of glass you want. This can be brightly colored glass, more muted tones, beveled glass, or anything you like!

This is one of the reasons it makes such a phenomenal gift, because the person you give the gift to can meet with our designers and create their own design.
