Stained glass has traditionally been an art form rooted in the great medieval cathedrals of Europe, with religion as its inspiration.
To the medieval mind, stained glass possessed a magical quality which had the power to transform ones soul. Even today, there are few who are not moved as they stand beneath a church’s stained glass windows, enveloped in a sea of colors and detailed patterns. Ecclesiastical windows created by Kits Glass, traditional or contemporary, express spirituality in new forms. Every creation is an inspiration in itself.
Some examples of our work are: “The Pentecost” window in St. Andrew’s Wesley United Church, “The Four Elements” windows in Westminster Abbey, in Mission BC, “The Generations Window” St. Stephen’s Church in Summerland BC, and the “Crucifixion Window” in the Church of Saint John the Divine in Victoria BC.
Stained Glass windows dull, and in time, buckle under their own weight. Kits Glass specializes in restoring these windows to their original splendor.
Aside from providing window restoration, Kits Glass also offers protective window covering which protects them from damage and pollution as well as limiting sound. They are also energy efficient.
The “silver” light of the sun of ancient Latvian poetry was symbolically recreated in the 30 windows of St. Andrews Lutheran Church in Toronto, ON. The theme was the Tri-Unity of God. Hence their name The Trinity Windows.
