Custom stained glass for your garden.

Custom stained glass for your garden.

Do you have a green thumb? Is working in your garden one of your favorite things to do? If you answered yes to either of these questions, you should continue reading. Imagine waking up to the morning sun, walking toward your garden, and seeing the sun shine through your stained glass garden gates.

What a beautiful sight that would be!

Now, perhaps you are thinking, “I’ve never heard of or seen a stained glass garden gate.” If so, you are hardly alone. Here at Houston Stained Glass, we are finding that our clients are really thinking outside the box, finding more and more creative ways to add stained glass to different areas in their homes.

We have customers who have ordered stained glass panels on their decks, stained glass kitchen cabinet doors, stained glass skylights, and stained glass garden sculptures. So why not a stained glass garden gate? Stained glass is sturdier than you might think, and built to last for generations.

Now that we’ve got you thinking in new and creative directions, let’s discuss exactly what type of colors or patterns or styles you might want for your stained glass gate. Remember, stained glass is an ancient art form. Throughout the centuries, it has been created in many different styles, from Celtic designs to Deco designs to natural designs like florals and trees. Of course, the flowers and the trees would be a perfect idea for your garden gate, wouldn’t they?

And then just imagine how great any of these designs would look in your garden gate.

The type of gate you have will make a difference as well. If your gate is wooden, we can insert a stained glass panel, the same way we would in a regular door. If your gate is wrought iron, we might have to come up with other ideas. The best way to know is to have us come out and look at what you have right now, and share our ideas.

Fact is, every piece of stained glass we do at Houston Stained Glass is custom designed. And hand-crafted. So if you have a different idea for your stained glass garden gate, you can work together with one of our designers to bring it into fruition. Our designer will visit you in your home and help you pick the pattern and colors for your custom piece of stained glass art.
