Welcome To StainedGlass
The raw materials for glass manufacture are now still - as they were in ancient times - sand, soda and limestone or chalk. From the chemical point of view glass consists of compounds of silicates with alkaline and alkaline-earth oxides.
After melting, glass with the correct composition and subjected to the right treatment (cooling), must not become crystalline on solidifying.
This website is all about glass, but specifically stained glass – how it is made, its history and some of the beautiful, and gorgeous, most ancient and modern, that you will find in the world today.
There are many unique stained glass fragments and pieces which come from several different countries including; England, France and America.
