John Reyntiens made his first stained glass window when he was nine years old. He set up his stained glass studio in 1996 in London and since then has worked on everything from small scale domestic stained glass projects to art glass on a large scale in public buildings: Windsor Castle, Westminster Hall, Jesus College, Cambridge, and internationally in hospitals, museums, schools, churches, hotels and office buildings. Clients include Her Majesty the Queen and Versace.
John trained in fine and decorative arts. Like his father, Patrick Reyntiens, he works in a fine art tradition. He brings a combination of established stained glass techniques and new contemporary glass technologies to new projects as well as to stained glass restoration and conservation work. His team use hand-blown antique glass, acid etching, kiln-forming, staining, painting and gilding to create unique pieces of artwork.
Glass is like no other artist material in its versatility:
vibrant, translucent, enduring, strong, reflective, refractive, lustrous, fragile, crystalline, engraved, stippled, hand-painted, hand-blown, frosted.
