About Gerry Veley
Gerry Veley apprenticed in Rottweil, Germany as a glass painter from 1979 to 1982. He received his Master Craftsman certification in Hadamar, Germany in 1989 as a Master Glass Painter. During his apprenticeship he received advanced training in medieval stained glass restoration at the York Glazier's Trust in York, England.
Veley Art and Stained Glass Studio was established in 1976 to assist individuals and organizations in the acquisition of appropriate window treatments for a wide range of architectural structures.
Services offered by the studio include appraisals of existing windows, damage assessment, insurance claims, restoration, design, fabrication and onsite installation.
The studio specializes in all facets of custom church window decorative glass — from new window treatments to the restoration of existing stained glass and window repair. Our professionals design and execute windows from faceted glass (dalle-de-verre), a technique used widely in Europe; now gaining popularity in the United States. This medium lends itself distinctly to modern church architecture by complementing wood, steel and concrete. Faceted glass windows are durable and require virtually no upkeep.
Professional expertise is assured in creating windows harmonious with the interior design and archictecture of the church without compromising the iconographic content or the liturgical significance of the stained glass window.
All designs are customized to meet the various requirements of a particular building and its specialized function. To assist in the task of accurate restoration, the studio maintains an extensive bank of old glass, both domestic and foreign.
Artist's Statement: "To search out, clarify and express emotions in glass."
