Glenn Shalan began his career in stained glass in 1982. He studied art and design at Parsons School of Design in New York City and has worked at several well-known stained glass studios in the United States, most recently at Cummings Studios. He has collaborated with architects, designers and other stained glass professionals on a wide variety of projects. They range from original designs inspired by the work of Frank Lloyd Wright to the restoration of three stained glass domes designed by Tiffany Studios for the Essex County Courthouse, Newark, N.J. and the replication of a stained and etched glass laylight for the Tweed Courthouse in New York City. In July 2006, he opened Shalan Stained Glass, located in the Windsor Mill in North Adams, MA.
Shalan Stained Glass specializes in the conservation and restoration of stained glass windows for churches, public buildings and private residences. The studio also designs and fabricates new windows in a variety of styles. Completed restorations include the Rose Window for the First United Methodist Church in Williamstown, MA. and the restoration of ten sanctuary windows for the Lutheran Church of the Reformation in Washington, DC. New commissions include three windows designed for the City Council Chambers, City Hall, Hoboken, N.J. and four windows for the Petersen Residence, a Frank Lloyd Wright designed home in Clinton, Wisconsin.
