About Us

Rayer’s Bearden Stained Glass is one of the largest stained glass retailer/suppliers in the country and has been in business for over 36 years. Our staff is rated among the top stained glass artists in the nation, known for our superior quality and attention to specific needs. Our success lies in the old-fashioned values we instill in our craftsmanship. Specializing in all phases of glass work, everything is hand-drawn and fabricated by a collaboration of artisans tailored to meet the individual needs of the customer. We have done thousands of custom panels for residential and commercial installments, including museums, celebrities, casinos and even the White House. A few installations include: The Cosmosphere Smithsonian, the McPherson Library ( McPherson, Ks), Bill Kurtis’s Art of the Prairie Gallery, Immaculate Heart of Mary Cathedral (Hays, Ks), Star Casino and Reformation Lutheran Church (Wichita, Ks).

Rayer’s offers over 30 different classes locally, professionally training art instructors and hobbyists the trending techniques in glass working. As the Midwest’s largest supplier of glass, Rayer’s also has become a wholesale supply hot spot for small shops and artisans. Rayer’s sponsors several high school and college art programs and donates routinely to art education fundraisers, along with offering internship programs. What makes us unique is the gorgeous loft gallery displaying in-house, local and international art that is hard to come by. We are widely considered to be one of Wichita’s finest hidden gems. People come in from all over to experience our gallery aside our walk through open artist lab. In 2007, we received the first annual recognition for “Art Glass Studio of the Year” by the National Art Glass Association. We would love for you to visit us!
