Custom religious designs

Stained glass has played a large part in religious artwork throughout the past centuries. With custom religious stained glass, Houston houses of worship can join this age old tradition.

Houston Stained Glass offers custom designed and hand crafted stained glass for churches and cathedrals, temples and chapels, and any other religious institutions. Because our stained glass is custom designed, it can be built to fit any size windows, from the smallest to the massive. And it can be done in any style that suits the individual congregation. Some of our religious stained glass Houston clients commission windows that are very traditional. They show religious icons or even biblical scenes, like the grand cathedrals in Europe.

Other of our religious clients want something that is more modern, more contemporary in nature, such as a dove to represent peace. Regardless of what type of style or design is chosen, our process is the same and our results are the same: high quality, stunning stained glass.

Sometimes our clients have a strong idea of what they want at our first consultation. If they can describe it or show us a photo, we can sketch it and build it. Other times, we help our clients to come up with a theme and offer our own photos and ideas. Since each congregation, each religion, and each denomination is different, it’s only natural that the stained glass that would suit them is different as well.

When it comes to religious stained glass, Houston church clients have reported to us that the addition of it really makes a difference to their congregations. It is uplifting and inspiring, particularly when the sun shines through it. So if you are considering which windows to add stained glass to, you might consider which ones get the most sunlight, and at which times of the day.

Our process for creating custom religious stained glass in Houston is quite simple. We meet with you right in your church or other religious institution. Together, we will finalize the design, with sketches to scale. Once the design is agreed upon, we will use special computer design software to create the actual pattern that our stained glass artisans will work from. Once they receive it, they cut each piece of glass by hand, to the pattern. They assembled the stained glass by hand, the same way the masters of old did.

Once the stained glass is complete, we install it into your church windows or doors, where it can last for many generations. If it ever needs any kind of repair, Houston Stained Glass has extensive repair and restoration experience as well.
