Some suggested uses for stained glass

Stained glass for window coverings

Using stained glass as a dressing for windows is an attractive alternative to curtains and blinds. A judicious choice of the glass type at the creation of the stained glass project can keep intimacy and provide a sufficient amount of natural lighting in a room. Mounting stained glass windows in shutters or rails keeps the security and ventilation functions of a window.

Memorial windows

Offering a stained glass work to celebrate a birthday, a milestone of life or a jubilee, to commemorate an event or to honor a personality is a gift worthy of a lasting memory. An ensemble of stained glass windows in a public area is welcoming. Respect of the premises is facilitated. We'd stay there for a long time. Keep an eye out, you'll see stained glass windows in train station, in hotels and restaurants, in a public market or a library.

The lamp

Our winters are long, so the days are short and colors, almost absent, go from gray to white from November to April. In those moments where artificial lighting is on up to eight hours a day, it is really nice to be enveloped in an atmosphere of color and light offered by a Tiffany style lamp. Timeless Tiffany lamp fits well within any decor.

The lantern

The lantern is an economical choice compared to the Tiffany lamp to offer a beautiful lighting made of stained glass. It usually has fewer glass pieces than the lamp while having a glass surface which completely covers the light source. The lantern is less suitable for lighting service, e.g. for reading, but it is perfect for mood lighting. Its compact shape and light weight allows it to be place almost anywhere you want.

Stained glass windows restoration

Restoration of a window from Clayton & Bell
Church windows restoration

Atelier Rodrigue offers restoration services for church windows or antique stained glass. The drawing of the window is reproduced on paper in real size. The stained glass windows are disassembled piece by piece and cleaned. The broken pieces are accurately reproduced by the mean of enamel paint baked in a high-temperature kiln. The lead channels are replaced with new materials identical to the original. The frame is rebuild with new reinforcement bars to support the weight of the window over the years.
