|LaRanger Stained Glass|
Ray LaRanger studied at the side of two old masters in a prestigious Manhattan studio in the 70’s and the early 80’s.

* Fabricating and installing four windows for the National Cathedral in Washington DC,
* Restoring contemporary works of Tiffany and LaFarge in the American Wing of The Metropolitan Museum of Art,
* Restoring medieval glass for the Cloisters Museum.
Ray operated his own studio in Manhattan until the mid 1980’s before moving to Lake Carmel, NY in 1984.
He maintains the highest level of craftsmanship in all the commissions, restorations, and repairs the studio completes.

Traditional leaded glass (February 19, 2008)|
|The Studio specializes in commissioned custom work. The studio works closely with each client to determine the individual design and glass needs of the job. Issues such as design style and visual elements are considered first. Then the client is invited to the studio to look at glass and select types and colors of glass with the artists. The studio's designer will create a drawing of the project for the space, and upon approval, the Master craftsman will construct and then install the leaded glass. The client is very involved in every step of the decision making process. The result is a precise and creatively satisfying experience for the client and a totally unique and appropriate stained glass installation.||77 Visits|

|The LaRangers create custom stained glass, specializing in architectural glass for homes, offices, churches and synagogues, as well as museum quality restorations. Their work is unique to each client and they blend the various styles and traditions of stained glass with their ideas for a truly new approach to the art of stained glass. Modern, contemporary, traditional, craftsman, period pieces, abstract, realism…they can go in any direction with glass to compliment the architectural and interior design components of each space. Privacy concerns are solved while maintaining the light through the choices of glass with texture and tints. Their traditional leaded glass panels can be installed up against thermal pane, to preserve the thermal barrier and the beauty of the glass, as you see the leaded glass, not the glass sandwiched inside of the thermal pane.||114 Visits|
