Contemporary stained glass has seen many innovations and there
has been an explosion of interest in the last 30 years. New artists
and new technologies have simplified the art of creating stained
glass. Many learn stained glass crafting as a hobby. Windows and
doors in homes are embellished with stained glass windows and
light fixtures. Decorative "sun catchers" in a myriad of designs
are popular items.
Gifted artists create freestanding, three-dimensional glass
sculptures in black and white Art Deco styles, delicate Oriental
pastiches and colorful and flowing fantasy themes. The ancient
art of stained glass is progressive and remains a source of beauty
for everyone to admire.
