Solopark stained glass arrives

Solopark stained glass arrives

Solopark stained glass arrives – as I wrote in a previous blog here I have obtained stained glass from the Solopark  group and this week I have another batch. Included was this interesting stained glass panel depicting a small blonde boy collecting windfall apples and apparently watched over the gate by his grandfather or possibly caught in the act of scrumping by the orchard owner! The sharp eyed amongst you will have noted the missing right hand corner where it has received a hard knock. I have the three shards of glass and when I...

Stained glass birds roost once again in Surbiton.

Stained glass birds roost once again in Surbiton.

I have worked on a whole series of properties in Victoria Avenue, Surbiton and the latest has seen a major revamp to the frontage. These windows feature original Victorian stained glass bird roundels The leaded windows fitted were quite simplistic and had been updated at some point but did feature some wonderful Victorian painted roundels of birds which it was important to build back into the new designs.  The front door featured three original Victorian leaded lights and we used this theme to drive the design. Colour choice was important and...

Sellotape works wonders holding stained glass…

Sellotape works wonders holding stained glass…

One of the stained glass windows in this front door from Surbiton was badly in need of refreshing. The use of Sellotape holding panes in place always shows that problems have been building for some time. In this case some urgent action was required in order that the leaded window did not collapse entirely. The leaded units in front doors typically work hard with all the coming and going and the structure had begun to collapse with any number of  cracked and weakened joints despite the window being supported by external steel re-bars to...

All the RightMoves…with stained glass

All the RightMoves…with stained glass

Surbiton continues to be a focus for my work and the most recent commission was something of a rush order. The brief was to deliver a domed top stained glass window unit matching in with a pair of existing small top lights in the front door and a main over light featuring the house number before the property featured on RightMove. The front door and top light were both fitted with clear glass and adding feature leaded windows would both improve security and add a splash of colour. I have recently acquired a large stock of original leaded units...

Original Solopark leaded glass going green with recycling.

Recently I have acquired a large stock of original leaded glass panels from local reclaimation company Solopark and we are going green with recycling these into fully refurbished stained glass windows to match original designs. Solopark have been specialists in reclaiming traditional building materials and supplies for many years and had built up an impressive array of stained glass. The Solopark stock includes a wide variety of styles from Victorian through to Art Deco and will offer you the chance to have original windows freshly...

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

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...

Bullard & Sons original leaded window rebuilt

Bullard & Sons original leaded window rebuilt

Recently a rare Bullard & Sons original leaded sash window panel came into the workshop to be rebuilt. The panel was in a sorry state with the word ‘Stout’ almost completely lost. The entire window panel was rebuilt with new leadwork and replacement glass where the panes were cracked or lost. Once completed it has been mounted into a purpose built wooden frame allowing it to be mounted on a wall. The panel was almost certainly fitted within one of the Bullards public houses as a form of advertising. These were...

French Resistance – leaded glass window repair

French Resistance – leaded glass window repair

French Resistance – leaded glass window repair to a leaded window which would not give in. Not everyone is aware quite how strong a leaded window is – certainly the would-be burglar in Bury St Edmunds had a surprise when he tried to gain entry through a french door in a house in the town – despite battering a hole in it they were unable to climb through. I was on site within three hours of the first call and working around the team from Suffolk Constabulary’s SOCO I secured the property using an interim plain glazing...

Radley panel on display in P & A Wood’s showroom

The Radley panel is now on display in the stunning location of P & A Wood’s showroom. The panel sits amongst some fabulous examples of the Rolls Royce and Bentley marques in the upstairs gallery at the Great Easton location (see main image).
