Conservation and restoration of stained glass since 1923
The concrete stained glass window is fully integrated into the architecture that contains it, of which it is a part. Its spectacular nature enhances the interior space that the concrete and glass structure encloses. The bulk of the glass piecescalls, called dalle de verre or dallas, form plays of light of great depth and brightness.
We work with several suppliers of these manufactured pieces and we can develop any project with this type of glass.
Concrete stained glass was very popular during the 1950s through the 1970s and was used by great artists often collaborating side by side with the architect. In Spain there are admirable projects of Arcadio Blasco, Joan Vila-Grau, Will Faberand many others. The workshop specializes in conservation and restoration, detecting the causes of deterioration and correcting them as far as possible to ensure the permanence of these works.
Concrete stained glass windows are constructed with 25mm glass pieces surrounded by cement. The panels also have an internal metal structure. Concrete stained glass began to be used in 1920 but did not become popular until the 1950s and great architects, craftsmen and artists used it.
This type of stained glass, also called Dalle de Verre, allows the construction of solid enclosures, the thickness of the glass pieces creating a play of light of incomparable intensity.
J.M. Bonet also works in the conservation and restoration of these works of art.
