Shining pictures – they are omnipresent and yet they are mostly overlooked. The gorgeous glass windows of Vorarlberg’s churches are among the largest pictures on public display. In their iconography, history and art history, they are no longer familiar and comprehensible to the majority of people.

Its attraction is based on the tension between the glass as the basic material and the ever-changing light, which brings the colors to life.

In order for history to be experienced in the future, it takes professionals who go to work with craftsmanship and modern technology – without ignoring the traditional methods. Professionals, like those at Glas Marte.
