Where quality meets craftsmanship
Philip worked with the York Glaziers Trust on a contractual basis between 1995 and 2005, assisting with the conservation of fifteenth-century glass from York Minster and the late fourteenth-century stained glass from New College, Oxford.
For the last two years he has been employed by the National Gallery of Ireland to conserve works by Evie Hone and other 20th century Irish glass artists, and also by the Hugh Lane Gallery in Dublin to conserve the Eve of St Agnes Panels by Harry Clarke.
