Christmas Gift Ideas - Stained Glass from Bristolworks Glass

Throughout history cultures around the world have adorned their chapels, churches and buildings with stained glass. On-line I found the following history of stained glass; "It is likely Egyptian or Mesopotamian potters accidentally discovered glass when firing their vessels. The earliest known manmade glass is in the form of Egyptian beads from between 2750 and 2625 BC. Artisans made these beads by winding a thin string of molten glass around a removable clay core. This glass is opaque and very precious."  They went on to say in the first century AD Romans began to glaze glass into windows and "One of the oldest known examples of multiple pieces of colored glass used in a window were unearthed at St. Paul’s Monastery in Jarrow, England, founded in 686 AD." You can find more history of stained glass at this link, but it is safe to say, stained glass has been around for a couple thousand years and has been a cherished part of many cultures for it's uniqueness and beauty.
