Henry Keck Stained Glass Studio



  • Existence: 1913 - 1974


Henry Keck learned the art of stained glass making as an apprentice at the Tiffany Studios in New York City. After relocating upstate with his family, Keck established The Henry Keck Design Studio in Syracuse, New York in 1913. At the time, Syracuse had become a center for the American Arts and Crafts Movement and the Keck Studio worked with local architects to produce many residential windows in addition to those for they made for religious buildings.

Following Henry Keck's death in 1956, Stanley Worden became director of the Studio. Worden began as an artist's apprentice in 1929, working his way up to chief designer.

The Henry Keck Design Studio's notable projects include the residence of Dr. Charles Blum in Syracuse, New York, the residence of M.C. Eaton, Norwich, New York, the New York State Capitol, Albany, New York, and the restoration of the great chapel at Duke University, North Carolina.
