Prairie Stained Glass

Prairie Stained Glass has been in the West End neighborhood since 1978. They have a huge storefront and along with local made stained glass pieces, they sell kits, supplies, equipment, and books. They are best known around here for our custom designed pieces such as windows & lamps. Something that may not be known by most is that they also make large pieces for room dividers & glass sculptures. They have created donor recognition walls in Victoria General Hospital and the Children's Rehabilitation Hospital, booth dividers at the Round Table Restaurant and the Elephant & Castle, and stained glass windows for many Churches. They have also built thousands of custom pieces for customer's homes and offices.

I love stained glass and have a few smaller pieces around the house and in our cottage. We plan on adding a couple of larger pieces inset into the windows of our near 100 year old house in the near future. I love looking at the pieces in Prairie Stained Glass. They do beautiful work and have many artists working there daily on the custom orders.

A couple other things to know about Prairie Stained Glass is that they have on site beginner and advanced stained glass classes in a studio setting. They have several different classes offered over the year such as art clay, stained glass, fused glass, and mosaics. They also have their own published books that they sell on site.

Take a walk into Prairie Stained Glass at 587 Sargent Ave and find a gift for your special somebody or even a beautiful addition to your own home or office. Even better, take a class there and make your loved one a hand made stained glass gift. There is nothing better than a gift from your heart.
