New Commissions

Over 50 Years of Excellence in Stained Glass Craft and Conservation

In-House Design and Collaboration

From the initial conception of an idea, to sketches and full-size cartoons, and fabrication and installation of a design, the York Glaziers Trust offers a completely in-house service. Our highly experienced team of artists and designers have been responsible for the design and execution of many prestigious new commissions. We also have vast experience in a range of styles, and are also able to very accurately replicate original medieval and later compositions.

The Trust are also proud to have worked with several acclaimed artists. Collaborators have included Northumberland-based architectural glass artist Bridget Jones and Glasgow-based Turner Prize winning artist Richard Wright. As well as several church commissions, Bridget has designed windows for many prestigious sites, such as Ripon Cathedral, Edinburgh City Chambers, and the Ove Arup offices in Newcastle. Since 2014, the Trust has also worked extensively with the Turner Prize winning artist Richard Wright. For further details on our work with these artists, click here. Amongst others, a selection of our new work can be seen at New College (Oxford), The Fusiliers Museum (Bury), The Yorvik Centre (York), Queen Margaret's Independent School (Escrick), The Modern Institute (Glasgow), Tate Britain (London), and The Gagosian Gallery (Rome). If you would like to develop a new artwork, contact us to discuss your requirements.
