Dip-Tech and Saint-Gobain Glassolutions team up to refurbish historic Strasbourg Cathedral

  Printing and tempering

The Strasbourg Cathedral, whose cornerstone was laid in 1015 and completed in 1439, has been standing proud and tall for a thousand years; but since 1683, it was missing a large part of its stained glass artwork. That is until September 2015, when the clear glass panels were refurbished and replaced by stunning, digitally printed glass.

Dip-Tech and Saint-Gobain Glassolutions team up to refurbish historic Strasbourg Cathedral
Thanks to the artistry of the designers, artist Véronique Ellena, master glassmaker Pierre Alain Parot, and the expert team at Saint-Gobain GLASSOLUTIONS, who used their advanced Dip-Tech digital ceramic in-glass printer, this novel stained glass installation was able to achieve a convincing historic look that fully blends with the existing façade and original stained glass.
An historic site like Strasbourg Cathedral required artwork that was both contemporary, while at the same time showed a distinct connection to the past. In addition to sheer beauty, it also needed to meet distinct aesthetic and functional requirements.
The artist Véronique Ellena who designed the project, described her goal as conveying “the beauty and diversity of the world” on glass. She photographed everyday people who came to the cathedral to “bring their transfigured colors to the light that penetrates through the stained-glass in the cathedral. As a photographer, it was a way to draw the light on the stained-glass”
The end result was an image of the face of Christ, inspired by Hans Memling’s painting “Christ’s Benediction”. His face is made up of a montage of 150 of the anonymous faces Ellena photographed. In the installation, Christ’s face is on the right panel, and the left panel pays homage to nature.
Ellena, together with Saint-Gobain GLASSOLUTIONS and Dip-Tech, then converted her graphic images into a ready-to-print file formatted for printing directly on glass.
