Stained Glass

Soaring Eagle Stained Glass by Elenor Graff
The origins of the first stained glass windows are lost in history. The technique probably came from jewelry making, cloisonné and mosaics. Stained glass windows as we know them, seemed to arise when substantial church building began. By the 10th century, depictions of Christ and biblical scenes were found in French and German churches and decorative designs found in England.

There is a mystery to glass: It is a form of matter with gas, liquid and solid state properties. Glass is most like a super-cooled liquid. It captures light and glows from within. It is a jewel like substance made from the most ordinary materials: sand transformed by fire. Before recorded history, man learned to make glass and color it by adding metallic salts and oxides. These minerals within the glass capture specific portions from the spectrum of white light allowing the human eye to see various colors. Gold produces stunning cranberry; cobalt makes blues; silver creates shades of yellow and gold while copper makes greens and brick red.

The Yellowstone Gallery is proud to present the stunningly beautiful creations of Elenor Graff's stained glass in window designs, fireplace screens, lamps, ornaments, and glass candle chimneys.
