We are stylistically versatile, and are experienced with Traditional, Figurative and Contemporary designs. We also welcome the challenge and the opportunity to be innovative. Working closely with the client we find the most appropriate and creative designs for liturgical needs and architectural settings.

With approval of scale designs; full size cartoons (patterns) are made. From these designs glass is cut, painted and fired (if specified), and assembled by the glazier.

Fabricated the "Old Fashioned" way and built to last.
