Decorative Glass

An all-encompassing name for many types of colored & textured glass.

Stained Glass or Art Glass

Stained GlassGlass with many variations in textures, colors, and appearances.


Facilities DrillA method of etching glass using abrasive silica.


Successive etching of glass that produces a relief effect.

Painted & Fired

A process where a design is painted on glass then fired in a kiln at 1200 degrees Fahrenheit fusing the paint to the glass (as seen in many cathedrals and churches worldwide).

Wrought Iron

Round or flat ornamental, forged or welded iron. At Kits Glass we incorporate wrought iron into sealed units, producing attractive decorative products.

Channel (Caming)

The metal channel that holds the decorative glass together and provides the design form and structural integrity of the unit.

Single Glazed

A single panel of glass (not sealed).

Decorative Stained Glass Sealed Unit

The decorative panel is placed between two panes of glass, usually tempered for additional strength, security and insulation.

Tempered Glass

Glass that has been heat-treated to increase strength to 4 times over annealed glass. If broken, tempered glass fractures into small diced pieces rather than sharp shards.

Annealed Glass

Non-tempered glass. The most common glass used in windows.

Beveled Glass

A glass edge cut at an angle. When light hits the angle it produces a prismatic (light separation) effect, which highlights the glasswork and creates a spectrum of color.


Similar to beveled glass but with many small multifaceted glass surfaces.
