Stained Glass window designs are architectural features that have been around for ages. In the past, they were usually found in churches and monasteries. They usually depicted biblical scenes or resembled flowers or other geometric shapes. Despite being a design from the Gothic times, it seems that the popularity of stained glass window designs have not died down yet.
Lead channel window panels are the original form of stained glass. Working and soldering the channel is labor intensive and the designs tend to be simpler executions because of the weight and labor involved. Foiled panels are able to use much smaller pieces and can even use 3D techniques, with flowers or birds lifting from the purely vertical, into the room they occupy. The glass pieces are cut, ground smooth, the edges encased in copper foil, the pieces are fitted together, and after a flux solution is applied so it will adhere, solder is melted over the foils and joins the pieces of glass together.
During the 18th century the use of colored windows was no longer fashionable so there was no longer a great demand for glass art. Specialists within this field started to focus on restoring glass in churches and grand homes.
