Stained glass has made quite a transition as an art form over the years. While old techniques practiced in earlier times are still used today, advancements in the realms of math and science have allowed stained glass studios to do things that were not once possible and create more unique pieces than ever before. Stained glass windows are not only an important part of art history, they’re also a valuable part of our culture today.
Today, there are stunning examples of both historic and contemporary stained glass windows in Denver. If you are considering adding a stained glass window to your home, church, or building, you can visit these beautiful places in person to get some inspiration for your own design or check out the photos we’ve included here.
