The paper presents an overview of recent Polish stained glass developments rather than a certain category of artists and works of well-known stained glass studios, which would certainly imply a subjective evaluation and a falsification of the actual state. The quality and overall image of this field of art are not determined only by individual artistic achievements, especially when they constitute a definite minority.
Analysis of the latest Polish stained glass art should include its specificity and dissimilarity in relation to the parallel foreign achievements. These differences relate primarily to technological issues. A wide range of accomplishments, great formal variety, scope and scale as well as apparently continued development which characterize Polish stained glass give it a high place in European art.
