The ultimate goal of the fine craftsperson, like the fine artist, is to create something that will captivate, evoke, enthrall, or in some other way stimulate the viewer. This is accomplished by coming up with fresh ideas or designs, and then executing them with a precise control over the medium (even though the outcome may look very random and imprecise).
In any artistic medium there is an art to designing projects, and a craft to bringing off that aim at the highest level. There is an art to designing a stained glass window, just as there is a craft to laying down paint on a canvas. Stained glass, throughout its history, has been elevated to the realm of fine art and plunged into the obscurity of everyday architectural decoration.
When stained or leaded glass is in need of repair it is important to find a professional trained specifically in this type of glass repair. You may feel intimidated by the potential cost of repairing your stained glass. Here are a few things to consider before having your stained or leaded glass repaired that may help put your mind to ease about the price of the kind of repair you are looking for.
It’s been truly an honor working with Dirk and Maes Stained glass, their quality of work and outstanding service has been lovely.
