What once was only the province of the wealthy is now within the reach of discriminating homeowners seeking beauty and inspiration, a sanctuary from the busy world of today.

We use painting on glass to enhance the mosaic design.

For centuries mosaic glass windows have been used to beautify Houses of Worship. One of the earliest recorded commissions was in 687 A.D. in Northumbria, England.

At the turn of the first millennium, in Limoges, France, the Venetian Glass Guild developed the art of “stained glass” or, more accurately, painting with glass oxides and fusing the design into the glass with heat in excess of 1,000°F.

It was not until the late nineteenth century, with Tiffany and LaFarge, that the art form became widely available to wealthy individuals wishing to beautify their private residences.
