Mid-Century Modern Stained Glass

The term mid-century modern refers specifically to architecture, furniture, and graphic design from the middle of the 20th century (1933 to 1965). The style itself is characterized by its clean lines both straight and curved, bold graphic patterns and use of high contrast colors. When it comes to stained glass it often means glass that pulls from architectural designers like Frank Lloyd Wright or other notable designers from a design style including prairie and Art Nouveau.
