LEADED GLASS CEILINGS GALLERY

Approach

With a design approach strongly rooted in classic principles, Stearns & Co. believes a drawn line should possess grace, tensions and balance.

Whether it is a domed glass ceiling, flat leaded glass lense or a suite of art glass windows for a grand foyer, Stearns & Co. designs, builds and installs true hand made leaded glass panels to your projections exacting specifications.

We take every effort to buy and source our raw materials responsibly. We buy North American, where possible, and as local as possible to reduce overall our transportation footprint.

We believe in corporate responsibilty, both to our employees and to the environment.

We are so commited to buying and manufacturing in North America that our domes are NAFTA certified, meaning that more than 90% of our materials and labor are sourced within our borders.

Nearly 100% of our raw materials are recyclable and in fact much of it is produced using post-consumer content.

MATERIALS

High-grade aluminum

We select only the purest of aluminum alloys for our ceiling armatures. Made of 60% post-consumer content, our extrusions are lightweight and incredibly durable. We engineer our frames to a minimum of 2.5X safety failure rate.

Lead cames

Our lead channels are made using a 99% pure lead alloy that combines a fine grain structure with high tensile strength. 100% of all our lead waste is recycled back into useable material. Made in North America.

Textured glass

We use a broad palette of art glass sheets, most of which are still made in the USA. From elegant clear textured glass to opaque art glass opalescants, we have a virtually unlimited selection to choose from.

Jewels and bevels

Made in Czech Republic, we use only the highest quality cut glass jewels. Available in sizes from 15mm to 55mm, jewels are a stunning addition to any leaded glass dome or ceiling.

TESTIMONIALS

E. & A. Wiesbrod

“…he clearly understood what we wanted when the process began. Our leaded glass panel continues to surpass our expectations. Matthew is extremely artistic, committed, knowledgeable and patient with his craft. It truly was a pleasure to work with someone whose skill, integrity and professionalism were evident every step of the way, we look forward to working with him again on future projects.”

D. & C. Becker

“Stearns & Co. did a tremendous job executing our leaded glass ceiling lense. We had a very specific idea of what we wanted but relied heavily on Matthew to translate that vision into reality. It seemed like a leap of faith at the begining, but as soon as the process began, we realized we were in good hands.

We couldn't be happier with the outcome and are thrilled with our understated and elegant ceiling!”

V. Ashoori

“We had quotes and meetings with 2 other suppliers for our highly ornate and complex dome ceiling. Both our builder and interior designer felt that Stearns & Co. were the best fit.

Our project was delivered on time and on budget. The fit and finish quality exceeded our expectations and we cannot believe how breathtaking the glass ceiling is! It is by far the most lovely feature of our new home.”
