Stained Glass Domes and Stained Glass ceilings are comprised of two elements in essence: a steelframe that is configured into divisions or sections, and of course the beautiful stained glass panels. The glass panels are curved to give a true domed shape that is more pleasing to the eye and senses. These are magnificent architecturalart glass elements that will draw you in once discovered in a room. This is a truly hand made curved frame, and the glass panels are built on a radius.
