Kinver Landscape Stained Glass Window

Art Deco Stained Glass Window

Over the successful ‘Christmas Craft Weekend’, the studio was busy demonstrating and making an ‘Art Deco’ stained glass window commission.

The traditional stained glass panel has been designed from period ‘Art Deco’ patterns, which will complement the existing windows in the clients home.

The finished stained glass window will put the clients own mark to the 1930’s house and add to the history of their home.

Primary School Art Week

We have been working with Spring Vale Primary School as part of their ‘Art Week’. The idea is to create a stained glass window for their entrance, which will incorporate their school name and logo, surrounded by eight fused glass panels. The school located in Wolverhampton has over 250 pupils with 8 classes from nursery up to year 6.

The project began with each pupil drawing a 20cm square artwork inspired by nature.

As part of their ‘Art Week’, I spent an enjoyable day showing and demonstrating my glass making techniques. The pupils were keen, interested and asked lots of good questions. We worked with each class talking about their artworks and what they would like to see in their window.

These artworks were then taken back to the studio and one was chosen to represent each class. The chosen design will then be made using the fusing techniques, using outline enamel, frits and mosaic gems.

‘Liquid Light’ Art Commission

We have just finished an Art Glass wall panel for clients using our ‘Liquid Light’ fusing technique.

The commission started from a series of fabric and wall paper samples that the clients had brought in to show us. Their colour theme was red, gold and beige. We used ruby reds, ambers and clear glass to match their colour palette as close as possible. The ‘Liquid Light’ technique creates a wonderful overlay of colour and several tones are formed when these colours mix.

The panel will be mounted on to a canvas backing using polished brass/gold fittings and will hopefully look fantastic as an Art Glass feature in their private residence.

Like a painting colour is added and built up in layers.  Overlaying coloured glass creates new colours and forms.  Then finally the glass is fire-polished in the kiln to create our Art Glass of colour, movement and light.Web Copyright Paul Floyd 02
