New Stained Glass and Stained Glass Restoration
The Williams & Byrne glass studio can design and make you new stained glass doors and windows.
We also can help you with stained glass restoration and conservation.
And we teach the core techniques of kiln-fired stained glass painting.
New stained glass windows, doors and skylights
We can make new stained glass windows and stained glass doors or skylights in any style:
Traditional or modern, figurative or abstract.
This work is one-off to suit clients’ wishes and the requirements of particular buildings (old and new).
Read more here about the new stained glass we design and make.
Restoration and conservation
We take on difficult restoration/conservation work. We are accredited to ICON, the institute of Conservation: this means our work is assessed to be of a very high standard.
Clients also send us antique stained glass they’ve bought at auction in Paris or London, sections of which we re-paint and re-furbish as required.
See here for stained glass restoration.
Working with other stained glass studios
We work with other stained glass studios, for example designing, painting and restoration, either in our studio, or we travel to them.
David Williams worked with The Reytiens Glass Studio to help paint the Diamond Jubilee stained glass window for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. David was present in Westminster Hall on 20th March 2012 when the Queen addressed both Houses and the window was unveiled.
Write to us here if you have a project you want our help with.
We focus on teaching stained glass painting techniques. Our students travel to us from Australia, all over the USA, Belgium, Canada, Kuwait, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Germany, Japan, Denmark, Singapore, France, the Republic of Ireland and Peru. Also, from all over the British Isles.
In November 2012 we gave our third training course to members of the Muraoka Studio in Japan who flew here to learn more about the techniques we use at Williams & Byrne.
Our students travel these distances because the training they get here is successful.
If you want to learn stained glass painting techniques, read more here about the stained glass painting course.
We also travel. In 2011 and 2012 we gave seminars and training in the Netherlands that were attended by professional glass painters from Holland, Germany, Belgium and Romania.
In spring 2014 we are booked to tour east coast USA. If you’re there and want us to work with you or train you, write to us here.
Williams & Byrne
The studio is Williams & Byrne.
It is near Ludlow (Shropshire, UK). There are two of us – David Williams and Stephen Byrne. (Our backgrounds: here.)
Some of our work is close to home (across central England).
We often work in London where for the last two years we have been much occupied with the re-development of a London mansion.
We also work across mainland Europe (we are currently restoring windows for a mansion in Morges on Lake Geneva).
And across the Atlantic. We have recently been collaborating with a Californian artist for a stained glass installation in a private house.
And when you need the work we can do for you, you can contact Williams & Byrne here.
