Stained in Glass
Traditionally Hand Crafted Stained Glass Windows

Project 1

Design Brief

The clients passion for gardening, plants, flowers etc, inspired the design process.

The theme of gardening, particularly aquatic is incorporated in each window. The garden in question has a beautiful pond and water features, which influenced the front door and side panel images.

Five stained glass windows transformed a dull and lifeless hallway into a vibrant space full of energy and colour.

window 1

One of Five stained glass windows fitted into the entrance and hallway of a 1930's style house in Middlesbrough.

Materials

Pale green and Yellow hammered finish cathedral glass was used solely for this panel. A central brace bar was fitted into the frame beading for extra strength

Window 2

The stained glass window opposite is situated between the hallway and kitchen linking the two rooms, making the panel visible from both. A decorative display lamp illuminates this window making it an impressive feature at night time
