Stained Glass and Glass Painting
Sattler's Stained Glass Studio is a stained glass and glass painting studio which produces new contemporary windows, as well as restores antique stained glass windows (in churches and official buildings). In addition, Norbert Sattler developed innovative methods to fire and etch glass, allowing modern artistic designs to be transferred on to stained glass windows. This requires cooperation with the artists and their ideas, and architects and other crafts people involved in a building project. To facilitate this, Sattler's Stained Glass Studio offers accommodation in the Guest House for customers and artists. The close proximity allows the artists and customers to come to terms with their work and orders and to accompany the creative process.

Stained Glass Lamps and Artistic Mirrors
The company also produces stained glass lamps and artistic mirrors as well as melted glass objects, in particular jewelry, plates and bowls.

He is trained as an artist glazier in the European stained and painted glass tradition. His work exhibits a high degree of technique and finish.

Norbert brings a unique combination of talents as well as specialized skills in stained glass restoration to Nova Scotia.

Pollution Causes Problems
Because pollution has increased world-wide in the past one hundred years, the aging and decomposition of historic windows in churches is rapidly getting worse. Also the temperature gap between heated interior of churches and the cold outside has added to the problem in the fifty years, stressing the lead and putty, which are holding the structure and glass, to extremes. The old production methods and materials unchanged until today, are not fit to deal with today's pollution problems.


Product and Services
Old Craft - Modern Techniques
As one of the oldest crafts, painting and stained glass was developed as a method to cover a lighted space in walls and as a symbolic ornament, especially in churches. Glass became an artistic and architecural medium. The methods of production remain the same over the centuries. A stained glass window form the 12th Century was produced in mostly the same way as a stained glass window today. A glazier from today could easily find his way in a workshop of that century - he could start work immediately. Although modern techniques make it a bit easier for today's craft person, the process is still the same.

Special Methods of Restoration and Protection
The rapidity of decay was motive enough for Norbert Sattler to concentrate on special methods of restoration and protection of historic stained glass windows, which he offers to all of this customers.

Profiting from the Artistic and Work Experience
Norberts experience and modern techniques of designing, staining, etching and firing glass enables him to also design and build new glass windows from historic patterns or modern designs to be installed in official buildings or churches as well as private homes. Also, pictorial window hangings are profiting from the artistic and work experiences of Norbert Sattler.
