I love stained glass and can't figure out why the stained glass that shows up in front doors and other places today is usually so cheesy looking. A few years ago my friend Deb easily talked me into taking a stained glass class with her at the Eliot School, a fantastic place in Jamaica Plain that offers classes in Fine Arts and Crafts. This is the window i made for my guest bathroom. Supplies were obtained at a shop in Brookline called Stained Glass Works. The process was surprisingly easy with relatively modest equipment needs (soldering iron, glass cutter, and a few specialized hand tools). In fact, Old House Journal has a great article this month (on web here) on how to repair stained glass---just skip first three steps and it is a how-to-make-a-stained glass window article.
