30 Modern Stained Glass Artists To Follow on Instagram

by Grace Bonney

I mentioned how much I’m living for the renaissance that’s happening in the world of stained glass. In addition to the existing community of talented stained glass artists, a new generation is learning this incredible tradition and finding ways to make it their own. Artists are trying more minimal styles and embracing the graphic nature of stained glass to create contemporary patterns and designs. Whether they hang , against a window, in the  of a doorway or get installed in a window frame, these new designs are continuing the tradition of stained glass in a whole new way.

I was blown away by the number of amazing recommendations left under my Instagram post about stained glass, so today I’m sharing 30 of my favorite stained glass artists and designers to follow online. But be sure to as they continue to grow and evolve! xo, Grace

  • Just wanted to say that I absolutely love these posts! As an artist myself it’s such a source of inspiration to see unique takes on different mediums like this.

  • This post was such a great find! The suppliers of our stained glass industry went through some rough roads a couple of years ago, and it’s great to see people haven’t given up on creating with this incredible material. I call it my healthy addiction and never get tired of seeing what others do with their work.
    Thanks for the growing list.

  • There are a number of stained glass artists who are going in a completely different direction, not minimalist at all, but doing gorgeous work nonetheless: Judith Schaecter (), Joseph Cavalieri (), Jessica Jackson Hutchins come to mind (). Also, though he does not normally work in stained glass, Jeffrey Gibson made some spectacular windows for Wellesley College ().
