• Hölzel's occupation with the specfic design qualities of glass art and the creation of the glass windows for the conference hall of the confectionery manufacturer Bahlsen in Hanover (1914–1918), would have significant impact on the developemt of his pastels over the following years.
• The artistic technique of cloisonnism used for his glass window designs, in which color fields bordered by black or colored line are juxtaposed, became increasingly evident in his work.
• In terms of style and motifs, these years were characterized by a fruitful mutual exchange betwenn glass window designs and pastels.
• In later years Hölzel also received commissions for glass windows, which he drafts in pastel, among them for the Stuttgart town hall (1928–1929), the Pelikan plant in Hanover (1932–1933) and for a staircase at the company Maercklin in Stuttgart (1933–1934)
