Facts about monument glass

Monument glass is also known as stained glass. This kind of glass has been used since the early Middle Ages primarily in churches and cathedrals.


Glass staining is a type of glass art. Glass that has been produces in the artisanal way contains all kinds of deviations such as streaks, slight differences in thickness, or air bubbles, which causes the ingress of light to break into different directions. Particularly in coloured glass, this results in a lively play of light. For this reason, this type of glass is used to manufacture stained glass and stained glass repairs.
