Victorian Stained Glass Bay Window Restoration

Just before Easter the studio completed a repair and restoration of four fantastic Victorian stained glass bay window panels.  There were several breaks within the borders that needed replacing with restoration glass to match and new border leads were needed across the four panels.  The stained glass windows were then cleaned and polished to bring them back to their former glory.

Such a great feature for the house that is worth all the attention they needed, with some wonderful handmade spun rondels and coloured textured glass.  The stained glass windows have now be taken to the glazier for encapsulating into double glazed units and will then be installed into new wooden window frames.

The studio recently completed a repair and part restoration of two reclaimed church stained glass windows.  The panels are coloured glass diamond patterns, with a red glass border.  The glass diamonds have a great random texture to the different tints of colours greens, clears and ambers.

Some repairs to the red border glass was needed and the 2 panels have had a new leaded border and reinforcement for strengthening.

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.
