These are some of the latest #stained glass restoration and repair works the studio has just completed.
This Edwardian two panel front door in #Bromsgrove, #Worcestershire has just been re-fitted.
A 1930’s stained glass side screen with several breaks needed part restoration and rebuild in #Stourbridge.
This wonderful #Edwardian stained glass front door entrance in #Wombourne, Staffordshire has been restored using heritage glass and stock art glasses.
Our workshop offers a full repair and restoration service of stained glass, leaded lights, doors and windows. We work with residential, commercial and ecclesiastic properties and can repair a single break within a window to a full restoration of heritage stained glass panels.
The studio has been working on designing and making an abstract coloured glass window panel. The stained glass panel will eventually be fitted in the transom (toplight) window above the customers door.
A number of colour arrangements was tried, working to some set colours and a sample of the clients interior colour scheme.
I used different textures to add interest with repeated colours and it will influence movement of light across the whole of the panel.
Looking forward to seeing this panel, (once the cement has dried) – up towards the light.
The studio recently completed a restoration, which turned out to be a complete re-build of a 1950’s circular stained glass window panel. Really a new window based on a traditional pattern, in-keeping with the property. All of the background clear textured glass has been replaced and the centre diamond (also replaced) is handmade mouthblown amber glass. A simple pattern, with good use of colour and texture.
A pattern was made of the existing window which was broken in many of the glass pieces, the glass was then cut to pattern, leaded, soldered at the joints and cemented (putty based) to make stronger and weatherproof. The window has now been fitted back into the window frame of the customers home.
