Number is up for Eltham stained glass

Eltham has all the right numbers with new stained glass – built to match the exisiting leaded lights in the door and use the same English muffle glass sourced from the team at Kansa Craft The build process is here from central panel and then the outer areas of the half moon:   The existing door is in the same style: Just around the corner is Eltham Palace  and Gardens and is a unique marriage between a medieval and Tudor palace and a 1930s millionaire’s mansion. From the 14th to the 16th century it was an important royal palace, where monarchs often stayed and hunted in...

Double vandals – new glass required

St Giles Church in Holme has had some unwelcome visitors in the form of vandals who forced entry to the church. As you will see from this the first visit was through the right hand window. Unbelievably just a few days later they destroyed the window next to it when they returned a second time. The damage was extensive but luckily did not affect the cinquefoil headers which were untouched and a pair of new rectangular leaded lights were required, The old glass was salvaged and replaced in the same position during the build The new glass in indistinguishable from the old and gives the...

New Malden new Stained Glass

Working for the first time New Malden I have been creating new Stained Glass to exactly match that which featured in the house originally Here was where I started – the original door lost and the need to rebuild the sidelight and restore the top light Dukes Avenue has a good number of houses which have retained their glass and next door were king enough to allow a rubbing to be made of their door glass to get the scale and layout correct Glass types and colours were selected and approved to recreate as before where the coloured glass is suriunded by a Victorian ‘muffle’...

Bespoke stained glass for Reigate

Recently we have created new bespoke stained glass for a house in Reigate incorporating features for the family and in particular the children. Design and colour choice was all driven by the customer who was involved throughout the process The top light has a rose and a Arthurian shield to encompass the children’s names The strong yellow front door is an important element in any Feng Shui and is particularly auspicious for south facing This is our first work in Reigate  and it really shows how the three different light levels work with glass. The morning sun projects the glass into...

Framed….Saffron Walden’s new stained glass window.

Finally framed….Saffron Walden’s new stained glass window. Way back in February I measured up for a new feature window for a house in our local town which was in the middle of a major rebuild. After all sorts of weather related delays in the rebuild it was finally ready to receive the new leaded light last week. There was a shock in store on site when I found that the window frame I had measured to fit the window had been completely stripped out with just a hole remaining. As a result my carpentry skills were employed and with a quick trip to the local building merchant for...
