Not a day goes by that we are not confronted with art. Sculptures in the park, paintings on the wall at the dentist office, or a beautiful vase at home are items used to beautify our environment and show us that art comes in many shapes and sizes, produced by various methods and techniques, with some forms more popular than others.

There is one type of art that has been around for centuries and has never lost its appeal. It is the magnificent beauty, variety and elegance of stained glass, which can still be found in lampshades, cabinet doors, tiles, candleholders, as well as window panes in churches or simple residencies.
