Stained glass windows

One of my photo hobbies is shooting stained glass windows. Since most of my photo assignments take place inside churches I usually come across a lot of stained glass windows. From Superior to Racine and Kenosha, I’ve captured some beautiful stained glass images around Wisconsin.

There are generally two types of stained glass windows: the traditional glass that uses lead to hold the pieces together and faceted glass, which uses thick slabs of colored glass and faceted edges. The glass is held in place using a cement mixture.

One of the biggest selection of faceted stained glass windows exists at Allouez Catholic Cemetery in Green Bay. Here’s a link to a story I wrote on the windows last year.

Here are a few photos from my collection of stained glass windows. These were taken at St. Therese Church in Appleton.
