Working with Narcissus Quagliata was very stimulating and exciting, but also quite challenging. Together with the artist, we clearly pushed the boundaries of glass painting further than ever before, if not exceeded them. In order to execute his ideas, we had to develop completely new techniques for float, fusing panes and real antique glass and implement them in practice.
Of course, the sheer size of the work was a very special challenge for us. With 1,137 panels, each of which were put together from several glass elements, in addition to our creative work and craftsmanship, the logistics and organization were the most important factors. For example, we had to make clear at all times where each panel and individual piece is located at any time. Was it just cut or painted or already leaded? At times, we included more than 20 staff in the project, had to provide new premises for processing and storage as well as set up a very specific production plan.
