“Adamm's work is nothing less than amazing! His creativity coupled with a true artist's vision created the most beautiful glass work for my new study at my synagogue that anyone has ever seen. Everyone who sees it is blown away by the combination of beauty and spirituality of this one of a kind art.”

“I had the pleasure to work with Adamm in the restoration of the Piness Auditorium at Wilshire Boulevard Temple. Adamm’s workers caring removed, restored, and reinstalled several stained glass windows. Adamm met his schedule dates for restoration and his end product was beautiful. I would happily recommend Adamm’s Stained glass to others in need of stained glass restoration.”

“I just wanted to express my thanks for doing a wonderful job on the glass repairs you have done for us in the past. The work done in Ackerman Union and Kerckhoff Hall has always been very clean. Your staff is very professional in how they conduct themselves. I know Kerckhoff can be difficult at times, considering that this is a very old building and most of the glass is the original stained glass and lead framing, so I am very thankful for your services.”

“I am a Trustee at my venerable 112 year old church. We have been in our current location in Los Angeles since 1955. Our three two story Sanctuary windows needed to be refurbished; after an exhaustive search, Adamm’s Stained Glass and Gallery was chosen for that task.
Adamm Gritlefeld, owner of Adamm’s Stained Glass and Gallery, is a master of glass working. Whether new creations or restorations, Adamm is knowledgable and extremely accessible. Not only was his work without peer, but he also took the time to teach five members of our church how to do stained glass. I was one of the five and that gift
has payed forward, blessing ten other churches and numerous private homes in it’s wake. I believe I may well owe remaining a Trustee this long to Adamm’s wisdom, compassion and commitment to excellence.
Adamm’s Stained Glass and Gallery: you’ll find no finer in Southern California.”

have a large collection of American art glass, many pieces of which have come
from Adamm’s Gallery. Not only is Adamm a great guy, but he’s extremely
knowledgeable, helpful, and carries an extensive collection of art glass. We
love visiting the Gallery to see what’s new and often pick up pieces right from
the website as well. Adamm even gave us contacts for artists in Murano who
invited us into their studios when we were there. We’ve also met several
artists in Adamm’s Gallery, which makes it fun to know we’ve met a few of the
folks who’s pieces we have. Thanks, Adamm!

Adamm is a true artisan. His work is stunning and, without exception, my clients have been extremely happy with his work. He listens carefully, he is on time, and his prices are very fair.

"When we moved into our new home, Adamm consulted with us to create a custom-made stained glass interior window. After he listened to what we were looking for, he presented us with several concepts based on our home and we chose the one we liked best. Adam kept us up-to-date while he constructed the artwork. We were blown away by how lovely the stained glass was once it was installed. The final effect exceeded our expectations and it is a joy to look at every day. Adamm was very professional and passionate about his work and so were his colleagues that assisted him with the installation. We absolutely recommend him and would approach him again for future projects."

no trip to Santa Monica is complete without a stop at Adamm's Glass. We always
find something very special and of beauty.
There's something for everyone - unique jewelry, kaleidoscopes, wall art of stained glass. vases in every size, shape and color, unusual
paperweights, and lighting. We'd love to
have one of everything and do usually walk away with some very special
treasures. We will continue to visit
every chance we have.

We had the pleasure of working with your company at The Santa Teresita Chapel restoration project we did for the Carmelite sisters in Duarte, CA.
The stained glass repairs you did at the project were top notch. Your rapid response to our questions and your work crews attentiveness and
politeness with the Sisters was awesome. The repairs to the glass made the stained glass windows look exactly as when they were installed some
40 years ago.
We will continue to use your company for any and all stained glass projects we have. It was a pleasure working with you and your team of employees.

Adamm’s Stained Glass & Art Glass Gallery has not only restored several of the large stained glass windows at Woodlawn Cemtery’s Mausoleum to their original glory, but has also been an important resource with respect to identifying potential issues with the structure and integrity of all the stained glass and rose windows at our historic facility. We here at Woodlawn Cemetery, Mausoleum & Mortuary are truly thankful for the company’s craftsmanship and professionalism.

PILGRIM LUTHERAN CHURCH
At Pilgrim Lutheran Church of Santa Monica we cherish our many stained
glass windows. So when repair and renovation became necessary for a number of
windows, we entrusted the job to Adamm and his associates, who are known to us
as expert stained glass artists. The windows were removed, beautifully
repaired/renovated and reinstalled, each with a protective layer of tempered
glass. Adamm was able to match the colored glass in our windows exactly, using
identical antique German glass. Repairs are invisible and the stained glass now
shines with an even brighter light. We are very pleased with the process and the
result. Come and see for yourself!

Grace Baptist Church Bell Flower
sanctuary has lovely stained glass windows on both sides. They
were installed when the building was built in 1962. Over time many have
broken and others have cracks. Adamm gave us a reasonable bid for
the repair. His installers did a fantastic job matching the glass
colors. They showed up on time and each day when they finished the job
site was completely clean. I am very pleased with his work and highly
recommend him to anyone wanting a 1st rate repair
Bethel Grace Baptist
John Lutheran Church, North Long Beach, CA
The church I serve in
North Long Beach had three stained glass windows vandalized at the end of 2020.
One of the windows had severe damage with a number of panes requiring
replacement. On top of that these
windows used an artistic technique that created a "bubble" effect on
the glass pane and a number of the panes had religious symbols painted in them
as well. After an extensive search, we settled on Adamm's Stained Glass &
Gallery as our vendor of choice. The selection was based on
their extensive portfolio, the comfortable feeling of dealing with a
professional, and the care for the craftsmanship of the end product. We were updated regularly
during the restoration/repair process and that was a great benefit in keeping
church leadership informed of the progress. Because of the "bubble"
effect mentioned earlier, Adamm's staff had to rediscover the process that
created the effect. They consulted with other experts in the industry, and came
up with a process that was a spot-on match to the original.
In the future, there will
only be one vendor we will call in the future - Adamm's Stained Glass &
