Founded in October 1960 in the form of a Co-operative and Participatory Association, the Atelier du Vitrail, which succeeded the painter and glass-maker Francis Chigot, perpetuates the adventure of stained-glass in the Limousin region of France.

The company gained its reputation through different restoration projects of Historical Monuments and thus takes part in conserving national heritage under supervision of the Ministry for Culture.

Business is branching out more and more towards original creations, notably for private customers, exploring the multiple technical and creative possibilities of glass, while at the same time respecting ancestral know-how.

The Atelier du Vitrail preserves the traditional technique of lead glazing (cutting, grisaille painting, acid etching, glazing, silver yellow staining, Tiffany mounting), and also develops innovative processes (fusing).

Artists, who are employed by the company, make the models and creative projects themselves.
