35. When glass was made by hand all larger windows were made the same way, stained glass or not.

Flat glass was usually made by glass blowers, one piece at a time, no larger than a few inches across.

These smaller pieces of glass were fit together between "H" and "U" shaped lead cames to create a larger window.

All glaziers had to know how to do this. No window was ordinary, and all windows were very expensive. Clear windows were generally fit together in pleasing lattice patterns.

As factory-made sheet of glass got larger, and much less expensive, the term glazier became more associated with trades than fine arts or crafts.
