Small pieces of colored glass are arranged in intricate patterns to create a beautiful design. Each piece of glass must be carefully cut and shaped to fit together like a jigsaw puzzle. The glass pieces are then joined together in two ways.

The traditional method uses lead or copper foil, with the edges carefully soldered to create a solid and durable frame. Another technique secures the colored glass in a mosaic. Both processes require a great deal of skill and patience, and it can take many hours — even days and weeks — to create a single stained glass mirror. However, the end result is a beautiful and timeless piece of art that will last for many years to come.

Functional Art with a Twist

Stained glass mirrors aren't just pretty faces, they've got some real functionality too! They can add a pop of color and personality to any room, and they come in all shapes and sizes — so you can pick one that's just right for your space. Hang them on walls, place them above the fireplace mantel, or even use them as decorative pieces in bathrooms or entryways.
