Cathedral Glass

Purchasing Stained Glass

Always purchase enough glass at the beginning of your stained glass project to complete it! Glass colors, like dye lots of fabric, can change from one shipment to the next, and you may not find exactly the same color match if you need more glass. In addition, glass manufacturers produce some colors as seldom as once a year. The colors displayed here can only be an approximation of the actual glass color. Please send a small sample if you are looking for an exact color match.

The term Cathedral Glass below is complex if your not into glass history. Basically cathedral glass is colored glass. Glass which has been painted and fired in a kiln is "real" stained glass. "Painted with metal stainers".

Cathedral glass is the name given commercially to monochromatic sheet glass, which is thin by comparison with slab glass, may be coloured and is textured on one side. The name draws from the fact that windows of stained glass were a feature of medieval European cathedrals from the 10th century onwards. The term cathedral glass is sometimes applied erroneously to the windows of cathedrals as an alternative to the term stained glass. Stained glass is the material and the art form of making coloured windows of elaborate or pictorial design.
