A History of the Stained Glass Arts and Crafts Movement



One of the most important and influential books on the history of the stained glass arts and crafts movement is Arts & Crafts Stained Glass. This book contains the work of more than 100 studios, firms, art schools, and individual artists who were influenced by the Arts & Culture movement. It is an excellent resource for anyone interested in the subject of stained glass. It is available on Amazon and in various libraries. Here are a few examples of artworks by artists associated with the movement.

The movement was first started in Scotland, but it eventually spread to the rest of the world, including Ireland. The Irish nationalists published the work of the Arts and Crafts movement, and stained glass was a popular art form there as well. Some of the most famous Irish stained glass artists were Evie Hone and Harry Clarke. Other architects of this era included Sir Edwin Lutyens and Frederick ‘Pa’ Hicks.

The Arts and Crafts movement shaped the evolution of glass art. Many artists were influenced by this period, from Edward Hogarth to Christopher Whall. Some of them specialized in specific techniques, such as mosaic-style windows and stained-glass panels. Others adapted the techniques to meet the requirements of modern life. In the United States, the Arts and Crafts movement became popular because of its enduring appeal. While the Arts and Culture movement did not change society, it did influence its development.

During the Victorian era, a resurgence of medieval themes was accompanied by a new aesthetic style. The Pre-Raphaelites and the Victorians were heavily influenced by medieval imagery. Then, in the nineteenth century, William Morris founded a firm, Morris, Marshall, Faulkner & Co. This firm took private commissions while also replacing stained glass in churches across the country.

The Arts and Crafts movement spread to Ireland. This period was a time of national pride, and stained glass art flourished there, too. The first great artists of this movement were English, but later on, many others emigrated to Ireland and started making stained glass. Some of these artists were born in Ireland and worked on projects with the Irish people. Their designs have been popular in other countries, as well. The Irish have been very successful in the Arts and Crafts style, and they have a rich history.

Stained glass was a popular art form during the Victorian era. Stained glass artists made beautiful windows for their homes and businesses. The art has been viewed in museums and galleries throughout the world. It is one of the most important aspects of the Arts and Crafts period. Its popularity has increased substantially since the mid-19th century. The arts and crafts movement began in Europe. They were not a popular part of Victorian society, but their work was widely admired and sought after by many.


Among the many facets of the Arts and Crafts movement, the stained glass arts and crafts movement influenced art and design throughout the world. The pioneering works of Christopher Whall influenced the rest of the movement, and his pupils were trained by him. Whall’s use of lyrical, dramatic designs and powerful symbolism revolutionized stained glass. There are examples of the works in museums around the world that feature his work.
