Decorative glass panels are produced by our glasspainter and stained glass window artist using traditional leaded glass techniques that have been tried and tested for centuries.


Most painted stained glass windows use antique glass which is mouth-blown in single colour sheets and some two or three colour blended ‘streaky’ glass sheets. The glasspainter uses kiln-fired metallic oxide glass pigments that are painted on to the glass and fired at high temperature in a specialist glass kiln.


Sunrise Stained Glass studio has been involved in the conservation, restoration, and protection of the stained glass windows of many historic buildings in Britain however the largest and most extensive of these projects has been the rolling program of works spanning over two decades at Chichester Cathedral in West Sussex.


The Cathedral was founded in 1075 and is in the Early English (Early Gothic) style with Romanesque (Norman) arcades.  Although little medieval stained glass survived the Protestant Reformation there is some fine Victorian stained glass, notably the Lady Chapel windows by Clayton & Bell of 1882.  A famous contemporary window by the modern artist Marc Chagall is adjacent to the Lady Chapel, and was specialist cleaned by Sunrise Stained Glass during a recent stained glass conservation program.


Work has progressed around the Cathedral at Chichester in West Sussex for over a twenty year period, starting in the North Transept where the large leaded windows were removed from the masonry, dismantled, cleaned and releaded and refitted with new ferramenta.  Since then the towers (Chichester is the only cathedral to have a separate bell tower, like a campanile) West Window, South Aisle and Clerestory windows have all been restored, and the great stained glass window of the South Transept.  Restoration work is now complete to the Lady Chapel, adjacent to the North Transept where our work originally began two decades ago, but continues to the leaded antique glass windows of the Cloisters.

At Sunrise Stained Glass we have a continuous program of restoration and repairs to many churches and chapels and other public buildings throughout the south of England and home counties, details of which may be found on our website pages.  

Some of our other stained glass and leaded glass window projects in East and West Sussex include: The medieval Guildhall, Priory Park, Chichester, W.Sussex (restoration of leaded antique glass); Roedean Girls School, Brighton, E. Sussex (remaking of the stained glass Main East Window); Woodvale Crematorium, Brighton, E. Sussex (restoration of antique leaded glass to the Tower); Lancing College, Lancing, Sussex (restoration of the clerestory windows).


Within the Anglican Church the local Diocesan Advisory Council will be able to make suitable recommendations, also the Council for the Care of Churches, English Heritage, Ecclesiastical Insurers and many local authorities hold a directory of approved contractors. Sunrise Stained Glass is an approved contractor on many UK local authority and Diocesan registers.


Windows can be protected from damage by a number of approved methods, and we can provide a quotation on request for custom made wire mesh window guards, polycarbonate window protection and isothermal schemes.
