Guardian angels of glass

  • • Sandrine took over her father’s studio in 2017
  • • She later partnered with Matthias Rathmann
  • • They specialise in restoring stained glass windows

Bauer & Rathmann studio reposes on an incredibly rich history dating back to 1891 when the stained glass studio was founded. Sandrine’s father Bernard Bauer took it over in 1974 and she remembers her early contact with glass as she often played there with her sister. Having worked alongside her father for 20 years until he retired, she now runs the studio with Matthias. Together, they work on new religious, allegorical and historical themes for public or private projects, as well as with artists. They also restore valuable stained glass windows from some of Luxembourg’s key historical churches and buildings. Both were awarded the art glazier master craftsman’s diploma and represent a younger generation of passionate stained glass guardian angels.
