Glassmasters is world renown for creating stained glass designs of licensed museum artwork and replicas of original stained glass windows. Glassmasters creates collectible and home decor size stained glass panels of the images using a proprietary labor intensive handcraft process.
The imagery is painstakingly recreated by artisans who hand apply translucent enamels to cathedral glass in a traditional one color at a time process. Each color is fired into the glass at temperatures above 1100 degrees Fahrenheit. The enamels actually become part of the glass. Each design recreated by Glassmasters is unique. These products are imported.
A talented artist and devoted Franciscan nun, the art created by Sister Maria Innocentia Hummel between 1932 and her untimely death in 1946, is renowned for characteristic simplicity, celebration of childhood innocence and warm reflection on human nature.
Sister Hummel's natural, simple, harmonious and sometimes humorous works focus on the essential elements of the unspoiled innocence of childhood. Sister recognized childhood as an occasion of 'peace and goodness' that must be protected for each generation.
The enduring quality of the art, and the constant reminder that it is all about the children is an appeal to the heart that spawned a worldwide legacy now into its second century. Since 1932 the craftsmen of ARS AG, Switzerland, have reproduced the sacred art of Sister M. I. Hummel, to be loved and enjoyed by countless generations. These products are imported.
