Borders and Rosettes
BORDERS AND ROSETTES are painted with tracing black pigment that is kiln-fired
onto a colored background glass. These components were used extensively in
older liturgical and domestic stained glass windows and continue to be used for
many traditional designs today. The pattern repeats and matches as it traces
around the perimeter of the window. The rosettes are used to anchor the corners
or may be interlaced into the border depending on the artists concept.
The Life of Christ windows on this page
and this page are fine examples of
how these components may be used in a stained glass window design.
These hand painted Borders & Rosettes along with our Medallion Symbol series
are available worldwide from many fine retail distributors. For information on
availability of these components in your area please visit the
Windows for the Soul web site.
