Custom Stained Glass Transoms
So why not leave a little space open for some luminous “over-the-transom” messages?
If you’d like to receive unexpected dramatic blockbusters or subtle understatements on a daily basis, a transom fitted with a custom stained glass design will add interest to any door. CustomMade artisans can incorporate new custom stained glass windows into your existing transom spaces or create entirely new entries – doors, glass, and all. Take a look at these four unique transom projects.
The stained glass transom and sidelights for this building entrance in San Francisco, CA, qualify as a dramatic blockbuster. This entire entrance – the abstract cityscape in glass, oak door, and hardware of nickel, plated steel, brass, and copper – was designed by Glass Restoration Stained Glass Studios and built on site. Check out the additional close-up photos on the project gallery page for more detailed views.
Do you have a particular pattern in mind that you just know would look great in stained glass doors for your home? A customer approached Kelly Ann Hooper of Glassworks Studio with a fabric sample as an inspiration. The result: this transom stained glass window, “Victorian style with some flare,” with beveled glass and subtle colors on a clear cathedral glass background. This project also included stained glass panels for the door itself.
Transom windows over interior doors can bring more light into enclosed areas. This stained glass interior transom by Kelly Glass Studio complements the color tones of the walls and the French doors and helps maintain an airy, visual connection between the walled corner space and the larger room.
A flash of light that teases viewers with a subtle image of the natural world outdoors, the cherry tree branch front door transom by Because Designs shines above a solid door. Made with clear and stained glass, Susanna Conaway’s window design is “an organic and modern solution for a renovated brownstone with an open floor plan” that allows plenty of light to enter the room. Look closely at that understated box of light. What is the tree and what is the glass? Turn to the close-up photo on the project gallery page to find out.
