Leonard French – stained glass window artist

The term stained glass can refer to coloured glass as a material or to works produced from it; such as windows of churches and other significant buildings. Louis Comfort Tiffany in America specialized in secular stained glass, mostly of plant subjects, both in panels and his famous lamps. “Stained glass” can be used in domestic leadlight and objets d’art created from glasswork exemplified in the famous lamps of Louis Comfort Tiffany.¬† As a material stained glass is glass that has been coloured by adding metallic salts during its manufacture.

Leonard FrenchLeonard William French (born 8/10/1928) in Brunswick, Victoria, is a stained glass artist. His ceiling for the Great Hall of the National Gallery of Victoria is one of the largest in the world. Many make the pilgrimage to the Hall t lie on the carpet and gaze up at the ceiling. You know the most remarkable thing about this experience is, that you can always hear a pin drop. Even the young and boisterous are mesmerized and silent. For further glass items see this page.
