For over a thousand years, stained glass windows have combined grace and function to stunning effect —captivating onlookers with vibrant scenes, patterns, and compositions steeped in sunlight.
It’s a tradition Jenna Lambrecht of Omaha’s Lambrecht Glass Studio carries on today, one she learned under the careful tutelage of her father, Mark Lambrecht.
“My parents started the business in ‘78, in the house that I grew up in,” Jenna recalled. “Kind of a strange place for a kid to grow up in, but it was a safe and fun place to be, constantly surrounded by creative energy.”
While Jenna picked up design cues from her mother, Kristi, it was time spent with her father —evenings passed patterning and cutting glass in the Old Market studio or instructive noontime meetings with prospective clients —that solidified her decision to helm the studio in 2020. “I have worked with my parents really closely for the last 20 years, so I have a solid foundation,” Jenna said. “Big shoes to fill, but I think our work speaks for itself.”
Lambrecht Glass continues to delight and astound clients with custom windows under Jenna’s leadership —infusing modern sensibility with timeless artistry to elevate domestic, liturgical and commercial spaces. “Sometimes people know exactly what they want, a Frank Lloyd Wright style, for example,” Jenna noted, “other people don’t know until they see it. So, then I’ll come up with design options and we’ll continue to meet until we get it right.” Like the shards of glass Jenna and her team cut, paint, assemble and install, Lambrecht Glass Studio takes stock of their client’s individual tastes to form a complete picture.
“You can really elevate your space and create something beautiful that makes you happy every time you look at it,” she concluded.
