Go For The Authentic
Based in Sussex, on the South Coast of England Alan Wright designs and makes stained glass informed by nature, the human figure and architecture.
What We Do
Having studied Architectural Glass at Swansea, Alan works closely with architects and project managers, in new build or new adapted use situations, taking into consideration design brief, structural considerations, aspect, light and lighting, with other requirements from the client.
For private new work, the client’s wishes are also respected when new solutions are offered and kept engaged in the process, so that the final work offers the best and most appropriate result.
Restoration of stained glass is taken with great care, following a consultation process, to discern the most appropriate methods and materials for restoration, repair and conservation.
Conservation of original glass and treatments is of utmost priority and specialists in this field may be referred to. Restoration of glass lost or damaged beyond repair should be as closely matching to the original as possible and documentation of work made.

We loved working with Alan on our project. After an initial visit and discussion, he came back with sketches and ideas which were imaginative and thoughtful. He was sensitive to the architecture and lighting of the building and very receptive to our ideas as the work proceeded. The window was installed on time and has been very much admired since.

I recently engaged Alan to design a roundel as a present for my father’s 75th birthday. Alan was extremely quick and efficient in his responses and really good at encouraging me to get involved in the process as well. He was also excellent at providing me with a range of designs and cost options and treated me with an enormous amount of courtesy throughout. My father was delighted with the end result, which was very personal and excellently crafted.

In our Victorian House we have a lot of stained glass windows and the leaded stained glass panel in our front door was suffering from 100+ years of the door being shut and slammed. You then renovated our stained glass panel, took it completely apart, re-leaded it and finally put it back in the door as if it had never been gone. The result amazes me every time I go through the door!You certainly are an expert craftsman and an artist. Thank you so much.
