Profile Last Updated: April 29, 2009
Exquisite stained glass windows have added beauty and character to buildings for hundreds of years. Avanti’s stained glass art doesn’t date back quite that far, but its creations are equally rare and exquisite, and made for long-term admiration. Stained glass is a timeless form of delicate art and intimate expression.
Co-operation and Workmanship
Avanti creates all of its masterpieces using only the highest quality supplies and the finest workmanship. Commissioned work is done according to individual preferences, personal style and piece location. Where customers have employed building contractors, architects or interior designers, Avanti becomes part of the creative team. Where budget is a concern, Avanti designs to fit that too!
Tradition Meets Innovation
Stained glass in its traditional form is often a window to the outside, but this is not the only way to appreciate its splendor. Stained glass designs also enhance inside and outside doors, partitions, cabinets and illuminated ceilings. Pieces can be created in a variety of shapes and sizes. In recent years, Avanti pioneered a new technique, which allows for the creation of stained glass panels that stand more than 2.5 metres high and 1 metre wide. This innovation, without the unsightly steel reinforcements that normally accompany large projects, is a rare accomplishment.
Avanti Near and Far
Since 1980, Avanti Art & Glass Co Ltd. has adorned Calgary and area with unique renditions of fine glass art. It also specializes in restoration work of ‘old’ sustainable stained glass. Avanti art can be seen in Calgary homes, churches, hospitals, museums, offices and restaurants. Outside of Calgary, Avanti has created pieces for clients in Eastern and Western Canada, the United States and as far north as the Yukon.
