St-Pauls Cathedral, Toronto, by Guido Nincheri (courtesy Maclean's). Influenced by postwar developments in stained glass design in England and Germany, and encouraged by the energy of the stained glass renaissance in the US in the late 1960s, a number of Canadian artists and craftspersons have turned to stained glass as a medium for contemporary artistic expression. Despite a number of technical developments, Canadian stained glass practitioners have continued largely with the traditional technique of hand-made glass set and soldered in a matrix of lead strips or cames. However, dalle-de-verre, or cast slab glass, silicon adhesives and epoxy resins, sandblasting devices and a range of new tools and machinery have reduced fabrication time and extended the range of technical and aesthetic possibilities.
