Artistic Glass has rapidly grown to become a major force in art glass in North America. Our premises consist of 22,000 square feet of studios, showrooms and production facilities. We feature a full line of decorative glass techniques for ecclesiastical purposes including - traditional leaded, painted and stained glass - contemporary leaded glass - etched and carved glass - Dalle de Verre or faceted glass - and the restoration and repair of existing stained glass windows.

Our chief Artisan, Joseph Aigner, the founder of Artistic Glass, was born in Munich, Germany. He began learning in early childhood the centuries-old skills and traditions of stained glass from his father, a master craftsman, who in turn had learned from his father. He studied at the Luiesen School of Art, Munich, the Maische Academy of Art, Munich and received a Masters Degree in Stained Glass at the Meisterschule in Hadamar, Germany. During the following three years he travelled to Switzerland, Belgium, Holland, France, Italy and Israel where he worked designing, constructing and restoring stained glass windows in cathedrals throughout Europe.
