‘Still Life’ Stained Glass Commission

This week we have been designing and making a stained glass panel inspired by a previous project called ‘Still Life’.

The stained glass design is a composition of wine glass, wine bottle and carafe.

There are several handmade elements within the panel;  including blown, diamond-wheel cut & etched glass.  All adding to the bespoke and unique nature of the commissioned glasswork.

The panel has been commissioned by a local business as a retirement present for one of their longstanding employees.

The stained glass will be installed into a wooden free-standing frame, made in oak.

Stained Glass Workshop

On Saturday we held a one day workshop in stained glass.  The students learnt the basics of the craft, which gave them a taster of the processes involved in creating a leaded panel.  Designs were either chosen on the day or developed before the session.  Some of the participants had previous knowledge and skills of glass cutting and were able to undertake more complex patterns.  The students worked well, with a busy and focused day.  The panels turned out great and were left with the studio to cement and finish this week.   After their final clean and polish they look fantastic.
