THE ASSOCIATION OF STAINEDGLASS LAMP ARTISTS

This is a USA organisation based in the state of Washington. They produce a fantastic calendar. This site is well worth a visit if you like making big Tiffany lamps.

 

ARTISTS IN STAINED GLASS

Another North American Organisation (based in Canada).
Artists in Stained Glass (AISG) is a 27 year old not-for-profit association of stained glass artists, glass craftspersons, architects, hobbyists, and others, who are interested in the development and promotion of stained glass as a contemporary art form.

BRITISH SOCIETY OF MASTER GLASS PAINTERS

A very august body.
Do not be put off by their lofty view the rest of us.

 

BUNGI

Another site that took some figuring out.  Appears to be privately run, listing many stained glass sites.  Mostly U.S.A.  BUNGI started about five years ago and has at least 1,000 members, and is spreading round the world.  There are about 12 active UK members.  They like to organise cultural visits and exchanges.  Do visit them, they used to like this site and visit it frequently.
To be honest, after a look round in 2015 I found a huge number of dead and ineffective links. Not sure it is still active. If it is, will someone give me a link for this site that goes to a home page?

CHARLES RENNIE MACKINTOSH SOCIETY

Charles Rennie Mackintosh (1868-1928) architect, designer and artist is celebrated around the world today as one of the most significant talents to emerge in the period which spans from the mid 1890s to the late 1920s. Most of his surviving work can be found in or around Glasgow and we at the CRM Society, from our headquarters at Queen’s Cross Church, can help you find it.

 

COHESION

Cohesion is the glassmakers' network for the North of England and is sponsored by the City of Sunderland. The aim of Cohesion is to assist and support the region's glass businesses and practitioners to develop their skills, to create new opportunities and to promote the quality and diversity of their work to wider markets.

CONTEMPORARY GLASS SOCIETY

The Contemporary Glass Society (CGS) promotes and encourages cutting edge glass and glass-makers within the wider art world. Founded in 1997, CGS is a non-profit making limited company by guarantee, with dual objectives of encouraging excellence in glass as a creative medium and developing a greater awareness and appreciation of contemporary glass world wide.
