CrW Stained Glass specializes in custom made stained glass painting products and is located in the Netherlands. As a child Chris van der Werff was fascinated by both bronze sculptures and stained glass. He visited the Sint Janskerk at Gouda many times (large collection of church windows, many dating back to the 16th century). A decade ago he decided to start creating work of his own in bronze and stained glass, attended training classes and workshops led by artists.

We use antique stained glass and traditional glass stainer's colors. The glass is produced using traditional, centuries-old methods (mouth-blown) resulting in an authentic surface structure, some round or oval shaped air bubbles and beautiful, rich, transparent and brilliant colors when exposed to (sun)light. The paints we use are traditional, weather resistant, contour/grissaille glass stainer's colors (Reusche). We seldom use bright opaque, colored paints because we believe that the antique glass and (sun)light should do her magic. All images are hand painted.

Production process:

Materials: Antique glass, traditional glass stainer's paint, lead, stained glass Putty

Stained glass painted windows are custom made. We can offer different themes, images (character, pose, object, text), sizes, glass color settings, transparency, aging effects and finishes according to customer specification. Major steps in the design / production process will be verified (your feedback) before progressing.
