Meridian Stained Glass was set up by Barry and Nia Brady in 1992. With many years of experience in the design and fabrication of new stained glass, the conservation and restoration of ecclesiastical stained glass and the repair of secular and residential stained glass and leaded lights.
Barry and Nia both had their formal training in stained glass at the Wrexham Architectural Glass course under Mr Mel Harries.
After working as a freelance glass artist for various companies, Barry was employed at Ancient and Modern glass based in Bangor-On-Dee, where he stayed for a year. He was then employed as a studio manager at L.G.S Tectonics based in Halkyn, North Wales.
The most important and time consuming aspect of working with stained glass is the conservation and restoration as it involves preserving our glass heritage for the future. It is no different here at Meridian Stained Glass. Our back catalogue of work speaks for itself. We have repaired everything from Medieval glass through to late Victorian, including work by artists and studios such as Heaton, Butler and Bayne, Ward and Hughes, Clayton and Bell, Harry Clarke, Henry Holiday, Charles Clutterbuck, Thomas Willament, Charles Earner Kempe and Christopher Whall.
All conservation techniques used by Meridian Stained Glass are fully reversible. We find it beneficial to liaise closely with architects and Diocesan Advisory Committees as advisement for photographic records can be given in conjunction with architects reports.
The Wilhelmina Geddes window below was removed from Holy Trinity church in Southport for conservation. The window was re-leaded after extensive cleaning and reinstalled into it’s fully replaced stonework.
