The Boulder Stained Glass Studios originated in 1976 when a group of craftsmen in Boulder, Colorado were encouraged to produce leaded glass panels due to the demand for extraordinary design and craftsmanship. Through the years, their abilities and level of skill have resulted in the studio's recognition as one of the finest manufacturers of decorative glass in the western United States.
Today, the studio's reputation for high quality glass is widespread and examples of the craftsmens' work can be seen throughout Colorado, in thirty-four states, and six foreign countries. Working closely with architects, interior designers, contractors, and homeowners, the Boulder Stained Glass Studios have been commissioned to create decorative glass for a broad spectrum of clients including the State of Colorado; churches of many denominations; hotels and restaurants, including the Brown Palace, Clarion, Claridge, Hilton, Broker, and Holiday Inn; convention centers and resorts, including the Beaver Run in Breckenridge; banks; offices of professional services; and hundreds of private residences.
In addition, the studios are constantly engaged in the repair and restoration of age-old window panels and lampshades, often of priceless value. Using traditional skills and time-honored methods and materials, the craftsmen are making an important contribution to historic preservation for future generations to enjoy.
Visitors are always welcome at the studios and gallery to see examples of current work and to discuss ideas for projects both new and restorative. We will aid in selecting the appropriate technique, type of design, and glass use, and establishing reasonable budgets. Every commission must be approached individually. That which is proper in one situation may not be in another. We are continually developing and researching new design concepts in decorative glass for all uses.
