Over 50 Years of Excellence in Stained Glass Craft and Conservation
The Jervais Window, Agher Parish Church, Ireland
The East Window of Agher Parish Church in County Meath, Ireland, contains an extremely rare example of the work of eighteenth-century glass-painter Thomas Jervais (d.1799). The window depicts St Paul preaching to the Athenian, after Raphael. It stands as one of the oldest stained glass windows in situ in Ireland.
The conservation of York Minster's Great East window, initiated in 2005 and completed in 2018, was one of the world's largest and most complex conservation projects. This glazing scheme stands as one of the most monumental and significant of medieval artworks, and is the work of celebrated Coventry glazier John Thornton. The window contains two biblical cycles, Creation and Revelation, the beginning and the end of all things.
The York Glaziers Trust has conducted conservation work for over a quarter of Oxford's 38 world-renowned colleges. The Trust's special relationship with the University of Oxford is longstanding, having been associated with the care of its stained glass for well over three decades.
Collaborations with Turner Prize winner Richard Wright
The York Glaziers Trust are proud to have worked closely with Richard Wright in the development and fabrication of stained glass artworks for several of his temporary and permanent displays. These labour intensive untitled artworks use intricately cut, unpainted, and highly textured glass pieces.
