Restoration - conservation

By its very nature, a stained glass window is a unique and irreplaceable artistic creation and needs to
be treated with respect.
Restoration techniques and the philosophy of restoration have undergone a change in recent years.
In today’s world, the concept of conservation–restoration implies that every effort is made to preserve
as many original elements as possible and ensure alterations to the original work are minimal.
Such preservation-restoration work aims to focus on the original and ensure its longevity not to give it
an “as new” appearance.
Every work of art we treat comes with a conservation-restoration dossier which describes the state of
the item prior to restoration, the treatments applied and how these can be reversed.
This dossier is of vital importance in the event of any future restoration work or historical study.
