Classic stained glass
The oldest known relics of stained glass art date back to the VIII and IX century. The way in which
they were created was described between the XI and XII century by Teofil the Presbyter, also known as Teofil
the Monk, in his work "Diversarum Artium Schedula".
Classic stained glass is created from glass elements connected with lead. This technique dating back to the
Middle Ages has survived until our times.
For the creation of classical stained glass we use antique glass (hand blown and rolled), cathedral and
elements from formed glass (for example crown glass - round pieces of glass created by blowing into a drop
of glass and then rolling it until it gets flat).
