A glass act
A stroll through home decorating stores this spring is a testament to the popularity of stained glass, a centuries-old art form.
According to Jennifer Kopf, blogger and publisher of Town and County Living online magazine, “The art of stained glass is rising in popularity and it’s not hard to see why. Beautiful colored glass is held together by lead to create amazing pieces of art for the home… The art of stained glass initially took off in Europe during the 12th century, while the movement began in America when William Jay Bolton made a window for a New York church in 1843.”
“Adding a unique piece of stained glass is a colorful way to brighten any room, and is especially striking in a window or door frame where it can catch sunlight,” said Laura Worl of Michigan City Design.
