Trinity Cathedral, Miami, FL

Stained glass restoration

DomCat Studios is recognized as an award-winning, innovative stained glass studio. 


Our studio specializes in religious stained glass windows for churches with expertise in glass painting, new design and historic conservation/restoration.  


Charly Engels, founder & artist, was born in Bonn, Germany.  He was educated and received experience in Munich and Cologne, Germany.  As a result, his design is greatly influenced by the German Masters of stained glass.  Charly is a master glass painter as well as a stained glass artist. 

In 1987, Charly came to the United States and was able to work with Spanish artist Juan Artigas on St. Christopher Catholic Church in Hope Sound, Florida.


The Studio's first commissioned job in the United States was Christus Victor Lutheran Church in Bonita Springs, Florida. The stained glass windows were painted biblical scenes from the life of Jesus in hand-blown German antique glass. 


DomCat Studios is committed to providing the finest design of the highest quality and craftsmanship.  Our efforts extend into the research and study of historic and aesthetic concepts. 


Today, DomCat Studios remains a family business.  With our studio located in Cape Coral, Florida our work can be seen throughout the United States.
