1930’s Stained Glass Windows Survey

The studio has recently been to survey a series of 1930’s stained glass windows that will need some repairs and restoration over the coming months.  Transparent Glass Studio Stained Glass Restoration 01

Bay Window – leaded lights and stained glass transoms

The stained glass and leaded panels are in original metal frames, which also need some restoration in areas.  The surrounding woodwork frames are in amazing condition and a testimony to the materials used and also the regular maintenance since they were fitted.

Wonderful Tulip design in the Bathroom Window side panels

The stained glass has been designed throughout the house with some amazing patterns, in-keeping with the time, but also has an Arts & Crafts feel to some of the elements.  The stained glass contains some beautiful colours and a lot within the patterns are handmade mouthblown colours.  It really is a privilege to view these wonderful windows and house.

Antoni Gaudi Inspired Window: ‘Barn Conversion’ Project

Just organising photos of recent projects & commissions for website inclusion and I remembered this great article written by Jamie Hubbard of  ‘Creative Woodwork’ about a project we worked on together last year – The ‘Gaudi’ inspired window for a fantastic  ‘Barn Conversion’ for a Writer and his Family.

‘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.
