Stained glass, or leaded glass as it is also called, is one of the most versatile and safest mediums around. Not just traditional anymore, it can be used in just about any style of building or genre of design, including contemporary, even minimalist.

It is not just restricted to churches or cathedrals, but is incorporated into residential, commercial and public buildings as well as religious ones. In fact, over 90% of our own projects are actually residential.

It can be structural or interior, complex and intricate or simple, grand and luxurious or accessible and affordable. Just about anything is possible with stained glass.


In the early nineties, architect and fine artist Simon Simonian discovered his passion for stained glass, where he could integrate his knowledge and skill in both fields to create exclusive creations in this special medium.

He pursued this love and in 1995 he founded Progressive Art Stained Glass Studio, which has been one of the most prolific and foremost studios of its kind in the world, pioneering the contemporary and broader use of this medium in a variety of environments.

All projects by Progressive Art Stained Glass Studio are exclusive designs and creations by Simon Simonian.
