Restoration

The restoration of artistic windows is now conceived within a complete analysis of the work, both from a technical, historical and artistic point of view. The preserved parts are respected and consolidated and the deep knowledge of the glass art techniques then allow the recovery and reintegration of the deteriorated parts. The Vetro Artefatto studio deals with the restoration and recovery of old windows, both in apartments and civil buildings and in places of worship, thanks to the high specialization gained over the years. We always guarantee a very accurate result and able to satisfy every type of client. The restoration of leaded windows of churches and chapels is one of our specializations. Stained glass windows of sacred art often need a recovery or reintegration of pictorial parts that are possible only with a deep technical and iconographic knowledge.

L’autentico artigiano del “manufatto in vetro” interpreta il gusto sensibile del cliente, l’architettura e le diverse tecniche dell’arte del vetro esaltando il materiale che ispira ogni pezzo unico ed originale.

La vetrata artistica è un gioco di luci. Un’arte giovane rispetto ad altre tecniche di decorazione del vetro che ha vissuto il suo apogeo tra il 1100 e il 1300, con le grandi cattedrali romaniche e gotiche. Le avanguardie artistiche del XX secolo ne hanno esplorano il potere espressivo, sperimentando nuove tecniche e creando vetrate colorate.

Le vetrate in vetrofusione hanno decisamente un gusto contemporaneo e fresco e una tecnica appropriata con il giusto decoro, le rendono appropriate anche per l’ambiente classico.

Le incisioni, note anche come sabbiatura, sono sempre una scelta elegante ed hanno un effetto visivo d’impatto, per coloro che non amano il colore.

Le vetrate artistiche realizzate in questo laboratorio utilizzano solo i migliori materiali: vetro soffiato a mano e opale per vetrate, spesso arricchito da grisaille.
