About our company

The Foundation, headed by Mr. Edward Dehors, is dedicated to preserving the historical integrity of ecclesiastical stained/leaded glass by using strictly traditional restoration practices and historically accurate materials to restore your stained glass art to it’s exactingly original condition- regardless of it’s present condition!!

Mr. Dehors learned his trade during the 70’s from Stanley Worden of the former Henry Keck Studio, Syracuse, NY and Henry McClean of the Caldermac Studios, Belfast, N. Ireland.

Mr. Dehors is the author of “The Stained Glass Restoration Handbook”, a book written to pass on the restoration techniques and knowledge which was passed down to him. A copy of Mr. Dehors’ book, published 1991, is in the Corning Museum of Glass – Rakow Archival Library.
