17th Century panels made into a window
One of my most memorable jobs was building a window from three panels of stained glass from a 17th century church. The client bought them from a London shop that sells items from decommissioned churches. "It was just so amazing working on a piece of work someone else had worked on all those hundreds of years ago." As I worked I could see the glass float ripples and cog-marks in the lead made by craftsmen working more than 400 years ago and wondered what sort of tools they had used. "It was a real honour to work on this piece. I was terrified of having anything go wrong because it's just not replaceable."
New leadlight doorway
Look at the difference beautiful glass and creativity can make, taking this entry from blah to wonderful. One of the challenges of this commission was that none of the windows or the door in the old villa were square and I had to match the grid lines of each glass panel to give the illusion of symmetry. As each panel goes in the entrance comes to life.
A selection of door and window panels I have designed and made
These panels are all designed and made in consultation with the client to suit their particular need. I am passionate about working with glass and delights in the creative process from client discussion to making the design come alive with colour and texture.
