  Stained glass - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
Stained glass, as an art and a craft, requires the artistic skill to conceive the design, and the engineering skills necessary to assemble the decorative piece, traditionally a window, so that it is capable of supporting its own weight and surviving the elements.
The glass thus produced was heavily textured by the reaction of the glass with the cold metal.
Glass of this appearance is commercially produced and widely used today, under the name of cathedral glass, although it was not the type of glass favoured for stained glass in ancient cathedrals.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Stained Glass
As glass at that time was to be had only in small pieces, the glazier was compelled, in order to fill the window-openings, to make his lights a mosaic, that is a combination of pieces of glass of various sizes and colours worked to a given design by placing them in juxtaposition.
These pieces of glass had to be kept in place by some other material, and the best medium for the purpose was found to be lead, applied in strips made with lateral grooves for the reception of the edges of the glass.
The glass composing it is very beautiful, more particularly the browns, which are rich in tone, the rubies, which are brilliant, streaked and studded with gemlike blobs of fl, and the blues, which are of a greenish azure hue, while the general colour treatment is extremely oriental.

 Images in Light(Getty Exhibitions)
It may seem surprising to call stained glass a form of painting, but in fact it is. Look closely at the image here and note that the surfaces of each piece of glass are painted in a wide range of dark tones.
Glass painters used a special paint made of glass particles suspended in a liquid binder—vitreous means "consisting of glass"—to paint the side of glass that would face the interior of the building.
The term stained glass derives from the silver stain that was often applied to the side of the window that would face the outside of the building.
