Stained glass: its profusion of motifs and radiant luminosity have captivated viewers for centuries. The Swiss National Museum owns one of the world’s largest collections of stained glass works. The exhibition in the Hall of Fame showcases the art of stained glasswork in Switzerland in all its richly hued facets, from its origins in the Middle Ages through the Renaissance to the modern stained glass art of the present day. Photos and old tools from the Halter stained glass studio in Bern give an insight into the elaborate technique involved in this handcraft, which has remained almost unchanged for around 800 years.
