Veley Art and Stained Glass Studio was established in 1976 to assist individuals and organizations in the acquisition of appropriate window treatments for a wide range of architectural structures.

The services offered by the studio include appraisals of existing windows, damage assessment, insurance claims, restoration, design, fabrication and onsite installation.
We specialize in all facets of custom church window decorative glass — from new window treatments to the restoration of existing stained glass and window repair. We also design and execute windows from faceted glass (dalle-de-verre), a technique used widely in Europe and now gaining popularity in the United States. This medium lends itself distinctly to modern church architecture by complementing wood, steel and concrete. Faceted glass windows are durable and require virtually no upkeep.

Professional expertise is assured in creating  windows harmonious with the interior design and archictecture of the church without compromising the iconographic content or the liturgical significance of the stained glass window.

All designs are customized to meet the various requirements of a particular building and its specialized function.To assist in the task of accurate restoration, the studio maintains an extensive bank of old glass, both domestic and foreign.
