Brennan Stained Glass was started in 1975 by Bruce & Rosemary Brennan and their 20 year old son Scott. The Brennan's recognized the need to continue the areas fine tradition of stained glass due to the closing of the famous Henry Keck Studio. Scott began his career working with and training under the former Keck Studio employees William Yost, Henry McClean and world famous designer and glass painter Stanley Worden. The renaissance of stained glass in the late 70's led to the growth from a simple 500 square foot store front to our new 20,000 square foot home in the former first Catholic Cathedral of Syracuse (Circa 1852 ).
Training under retired Stanley Worden, Scott begin his journey towards becoming an inspired glass painter. As leaders in stained glass restoration they have been involved in many historic restoration projects with damage resulting from fire, storms, wind and ice. They have been selected to restore thousands of area stained glass windows in their 37 year history.
The Brennan's also enjoyed numerous new stained glass projects, none as rewarding as the stained glass dome at world famous Boldt Castle. Brennan's has designed and fabricated thousands of windows for churches, temples, schools, business's. They have enjoyed a very creative market in residential commissions. As they look to the future this family owned firm will continue with son Christopher leading the studio work force and daughter Kimberly taking control of everyday business while bringing the Brennan's into the new electronic and social media market. With long time employees Gary Messinger, Paul Farley and Kent Kowalski, the Brennan's staff offers over 100 years of experience to each project. The Brennan's are proud of their old fashioned quality work teamed with efficient and timely scheduling.
