5 Times This Incredible Stained Glass Artist Blew Us Away With His Creations

This artist creates gorgeous stained glass windows.

Could there be anything more ethereal than a ray of sunlight shining through a colorful stained glass window? While many people are most familiar with this artistic medium within the context of a church, one UK craftsman is using social media to demonstrate its diversity. Jan Czugalinski has been working with this medium for 26 years, according to his YouTube bio. His expertise spans a variety of historic and modern styles, including Edwardian, Victorian, and Art Deco.

Jan’s videos demonstrate the meticulous planning and attention to detail that goes into every one of his projects, from mapping out the design to assembling the precisely cut pieces of glass. Here are some of his most awe-inspiring creations!

1. A simple yet absolutely elegant window for a client’s house


Finished this project today πŸ₯³. This entrance set was made to tie in with an old existing leaded window in my clients home. It was a few weeks in the making and I can’t wait to see the photos of it fitted for Christmas 🫑 #stainedglass #makersoftiktok #handmade #periodhome #periodhomerenovation #stainedglassart #craftmanship #processvideo #howitsmade #makertok #glassartist #glassart #glasstiktok #leadedlights #glasslove #colourfulhome #homedecor #handmadeglass #glasswork #homeinspiration

4. A decorative circular piece for indoors


There’s just something about circular windows that I absolutely love! This week I really enjoyed making this traditionally leaded geometric stained glass window. This beauty is going to be fitted into the most gorgeous new wooden frame in my clients internal wall. These colours are just amazeballs! πŸ’›πŸ’™πŸ’šβ€οΈπŸ’œ I can’t wait to be cementing this bad boy on Monday morning 😍 Hope everyone has a great weekend 🍻 #stainedglass #glassartist #craftsman #glassart #artglass #glassmaking

5. A shimmering Koi pond made of glass


Late night playing catchup in the workshop tonight and my Koi window caught my eye.
