Gothic Influence windows customarily feature intricately-painted figures, scenes, and often include borders of towering spires. This last characteristic, often referred to as “castle work,” gets its moniker from the resemblance to medieval architecture. Gothic borders frequently feature pale glass (nearly white) highlighted with silver stain along with painted detail. The technique of silver staining adds tones of yellow-gold to the surface of the glass.
The intricacy of individual glass pieces in this style window could be described as intermediate, while the quality of the painted detail is exquisite.
Gothic Influence windows typically feature religious scenes or saints, usually crafted with translucent mouth-blown antique stained glass. Each piece of glass receives some degree of hand-painted detail.
