Create Ornate Designs Inspired by Sunlit Art

It’s like a window to your soul!

Part art, part window, magnificent stained glass makes us pause and reflect. It can tell a story, convey emotion, or transport the viewer on a kaleidoscopic journey. We’re bringing this artisanal craft to the people with the latest design challenge. Give us your take on this traditional art, translated in design.

Depict elaborate scenes of deeply human experiences like love, death, and betrayal, pastoral moments of peace and tranquility, or geometric moments of glory. Whatever direction you choose, make it reminiscent of the brilliance of stained glass as it’s lit from the rising or setting sun. It’s as if you’re a medieval artisan commissioned to create the scenes that will hang in the cathedral or pub down the street. So heat up the silica, pour in the metallic oxides that color it, and let the designs flow!
