When our workshop reopens after our annual winter holiday, there are already new and exciting projects waiting to get started. In addition, the new year will see the installation of several major projects, which we have completed in 2022. Let us show you, what we are looking forward to.

THE DOME OF LIGHT CELEBRATES ITS TENTH ANNIVERSARY
In 2018, we can look back on the tenth anniversary of a project we are not only immensely proud of, but that has also greatly enhanced our expertise with the wealth of experience we have gained in our production process. What we are referring to is the Dome of Light, a monumental installation at a Taiwanese subway station, which was until recently still considered the world’s largest piece of contiguous leaded glazing. The work was created by the artist Narcissus Quagliata who was born in Rome in 1942.
FOURTH MONOGRAPH OF GERMAN ARTIST PROFESSOR JOHANNES SCHREITER PUBLISHED
With works of art such as the windows of Augsburg Cathedral or the Protestant Church in Langen, he is one of the most significant German glass painters of our time – Prof. Johannes Schreiter. For 60 years altogether, Derix Glasstudios and the exceptionally gifted glass artist have cooperated in all kinds of national and international projects. His new illustrated volume Werke in Glas appeared just in time for his 88th birthday on March 8, 2018 and is available in two versions.
GLASS ART FOR PLEASURE AND PRAXTICE
To familiarize our trainees not only with the pleasure but also plenty of practice in the art of glass finishing, at Derix Glasstudios we organized a project week for our trainees early in the year in mid-January. The project was led by our experienced instructors Kerstin Grimm (responsible for the glaziers) and Bärbel Gottschling-Djahandoust (responsible for the glass finishers).
RENÉ BLÄTTERMANN'S GLASS ARTWORK IN THE BAD KREUZNACH SYNAGOGUE
Sometimes it is worthwhile not just to look through a window but also to look into it. Because with glass art especially, the window becomes not only a visually imposing work of art but also a medium with which the artist reflects his feelings and tells his stories.
A few weeks ago, in the tiny village of Kenz near Barth (in the county of West Pomerania Rügen), Derix Glasstudios Taunusstein began their work on restoring the medieval stained glass windows of the former pilgrims' church of St. Mary. The glazing involves six windows from the year 1430, which represent the country's most significant and largest collection of glass paintings from the Middle Ages. This important restoration project by Derix Glasstudios Taunusstein has attracted a lot of media attention and has therefore been monitored by various media representatives.
