Stained Glass Panels
When we first started in stained glass over two decades ago, stained glass panels were usually given and marked occasions like weddings or pictured a family crest. That type of stained glass is still very much in demand but free-hanging stained glass panels as art or room dividers have begun coming into vogue as well. Modern and durable, stained glass panels can be hung nearly anywhere in your Houston custom home–on a wall or from the ceiling. They function as everything from a unique art piece to a small or large divider to an entire wall of stained glass and are incredibly striking.
