Here we will be showing examples of one of the most exciting heraldic forms, the medium of stained glass. We will showcase the work of Canadian artists in the field, as well as illustrate examples of great works from around the world. Travelling members - and in fact all browsers of this site, wherever they may live - are encouraged to send us photographs or electronic images of outstanding stained-glass heraldry they may know about or encounter in their travels. This is an interactive process.
Please send us photographs/digital images as attachments to an email by clicking along with details as date, location and if we can use your name online as the source of the image.
