GLASS and Stuff

It can be difficult to choose glass for your stained glass project. If you are a beginner, we recommend Spectrum Glass because it's the easiest to cut, in general. The surface is very smooth, and it's machine made so it has a very consistent quality and texture throughout. Wissmach glass is a bit harder to work with, but has a more "authentic" look to it. It is more of a handmade product, and they've been making glass this way since 1910. The Wissmach Glass website has some interesting history and photographs you might enjoy.

Youghiogheny Glass is the hardest to work with, but is the most beautiful, frankly. We use it in our Tiffany Reproduction lampshade kits. The Stipples are especially suited for lampshades and large windows, as they are perfect for flowers, skies and water.

We offer an extensive variety of art glass manufactured for the stained glass artist by Spectrum, Wissmach, Youghiogheny, and others.... read more

Glass Remnants
Glass Remnants

The most economical way to buy glass. The pieces are irregularly shaped (but mostly rectangular) up to about 6" x 8". We cannot fill orders for specific shades or textures at these low prices. Of course, if you are in the vicinity of our store, you can come in any time we are open and root through the bins looking for the special texture you need.

Price is per pound. If you order one pound of remnants, you will receive enough pieces to just about cover a sheet of 8-1/2" x 11" writing paper.
