Stained Glass Style Choices For Chapels And Churches In Grand Junction

Opalescent Glass

Opalescent glass is glass with colors into it. Typically two to five that are used in the process giving the glass depth and lovely one-of-a-kind combinations. Plus no two pieces are alike! This type of glass treatment is on white opaque glass usually so you cannot see through the final product, making it perfect for areas where you want diffused light–like entryways.

Cathedral Glass

This type of stained glass is see-through and typically only one color. It has incredible clarity and is wonderful for creating large geometric type patterns that are ethereal and striking. As the name implies this type of glass is often used in cathedral windows but is also a gorgeous option for symbols, and memorial plates too!

Hand-Stained Glass

Hand-stained glass, is stained/painted by hand, as the name implies, to create a unique and deep look. It is typically reddish-brown or black and great for creating life-like displays–like pictorial scenes. After the artist applies a layer of stain to a piece they then carefully tap or brush in highlights–giving the piece an amazing shaded life-like quality. This glass is perfect for depicting natural symbols or human faces because of the stunning and realistic detail it gives.

Faceted Glass

Different from leaded glass, faceted glass a unique look all its own. This is because it is a thick glass that is faceted or chipped on the surface–making light bounce off the surface. The amazing play light on this type of stained glass makes it perfect for chapel areas or ceilings.
