Verrier specialises in the design and making of architectural and decorative glass for domestic, and commercial settings. Leaded and kiln formed techniques are used to provide windows, wall hangings and decorative features.

Verrier uses the traditional values of high quality craftsmanship, attention to detail and fitting the work to the requirements of the client. It is preferred to visit the site to ensure the glass is suitable for the situation. Clients are also encouraged to visit the studio to confirm the work practices and ability of Verrier to meet their requirements.

Restoration of existing windows is done to high standards whether for simple or historically important windows. Verrier has worked with the Glasgow City Heritage Trust on several projects and with various architects and builders on larger projects.

Verrier also conducts weekend workshops and some evening classes, as well as supplying glass and tools to other workers and enthusiasts.

Verrier is run by Stephen Richard who has had art training at the University of Kansas and Glasgow Metropolitan, and in master classes with Paul San Casciani and Klaus Moje. He is involved with various professional bodies: Past Chairman of the Scottish Glass Society, Past Chairman of the International Guild of Glass Artists (currently on the advisory board), Past Chair of craftscotland, member of British Society of Master Glass Painters, and the Contemporary Glass Society. He established Architectural Glass Artists in 1998, which has grown into the largest collaborative glass studio in Scotland.
