WITRAZE s.c. provides restoration and reconstruction services. We offer repair of damaged stained glass windows, lamps and other objects.

Cracked pieces from stained glass panel are removed and replaced by identical or matching ones. We do our best to faithfully reproduce the original work of art. In some cases, when particular glass is no longer avaible in stores, we manufacture it on our own. We clean historic stained glass pieces and reassemble them with new lead. If needed, we reinforce weak and exposed spots. Basing on photographic archives and on our iconography knowledge we're able to recreate from scratch a completely destroyed historical stained glass window.

We do repairs of broken stained glass lampshades. With a good reinforcement they can last for many years.

We recreate damaged pieces using various techniques such as glass painting, releading, etching. We are able to fix broken parts by glueing them and recreating missing elements with epoxy resins for glass. We can also recreate spherical an cylindrical glass pieces.
