Stained glass can enhance an architectural space, as the light that passes through creates animation of patters on walls and floor. Traditionally used in churches and other holy buildings, today, it is not uncommon to find stained glass in cultural buildings, hotels, art installations and even shopping malls. Wherever it is found, it is sure that these spaces will be magical.
