The case studies here take us on a tour of France, and in particularly to Aube, the founding department of the Cité du Vitrail in Troyes and organiser of the Premières Rencontres Internationales du Vitrail, but it also takes us to Spain, Switzerland and Brazil.

Creation is considered from the various viewpoints of the different players involved –painterglassmakers, artists, art historians – without forgetting in Villenauxe-la-Grande (the site of the artist David Tremlett’s work), to let the inhabitants have their say too, as they are the first to be concerned by this art of stained glass which each and everyone is free to appropriate in their own way.
