The Stained Glass Museum

What appears to have potential to be an excellent resource by the Stained Glass Museum at Ely in the UK. At time of writing they appear to be only covering their own collection but perhaps, in time, they will broaden the reach of their coverage by photographic means as opposed to solely by acquisition.

All Planet Studios

Gabreal Franklin is a much-travelled and highly accomplished film and media producer who in a former life not only acquired a collection of fine examples of stained glass, including works by Tiffany, Morris and Kempe, but also amassed a huge collection of photographs which he himself took of works all across Europe. Until very recently both the actual windows that he owns and the collection of photographs have been in storage but he has begun to set events in motion which will make them accessible to a wider audience. This link will take you to some web pages which he created which describe the collection.

Dr Michelli's elegant, authoritative and informative site which combines art history with a history of stained glass. Well worth a visit.

A hugely informative site for anyone who is interested in Cumbria and the English Lake District compiled as a 'labour of love' by Julian Thurgood.

This is a link to some work which includes pictures we have not yet had the opportunity to upload to the site. Each of the subject folders contains thumbnails and by clicking on them a 'medium size' version can be loaded and then from that screen there is an option to load a 'large' version. There is some duplication with pictures on this site but at least 80 of the pictures on have not yet been posted here.

This is a wonderful article which extols the virtues of creating a good photographic record of stained glass. However, one cannot help but feel that in a great many cases the task requires a little more than ", a good film, steady hands and a strong step ladder" Frankly the idea of clerics trying to balance themselves atop tall step ladders while attempting to hold the camera steady for what may need to be several seconds is troubling to say the very least.

A beautiful website based around an exhibition of Frank Lloyd Wright's work which was mounted in several venues from 2001 to 2003.

Unfortunately I have no photographs of actual Wright windows on the website although the Glassmasters reproductions of some of his works are well worth looking at.
