A Closer Look at the Work of Charles Rennie Mackintosh

Stained Glass Denver is proud to pay homage to many different stained glass artisans and artists throughout history. As much as we love creating contemporary, modern pieces of custom stained glass, we also love creating traditional pieces that draw from historical art movements that have shaped our current stained glass trends. One of our favorite stained glass artists to pay homage to is Charles Rennie Mackintosh. Charles Rennie Mackintosh was a Scottish architect, designer, and artist that has created iconic buildings throughout Scotland.

Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s Impact on Stained Glass

Charles Rennie Mackintosh would build and design every component in all the buildings he created. With an incredible eye for art, each curated component had intention that pieced together perfectly. One of the building components we would often design was the stained glass windows. His stained glass differed during the time period by combining Art Nouveau and Mission Style. The free-flow and symmetric styles offer a beautiful harmony of lines and design work. Often place on a symmetric square piece, his stained glass windows delivered beauty and versatility. One of his most popular designs is the Glasglow Rose– this abstract piece has vibrant colors contrasted with clear glass background. The Glasglow Rose is often requested by many clients throughout the Denver area.
