Commissions ~ Windows ~ Designed and handmade specially for you
All our glass art works are individually handmade, so we can design and create to your requirements. We hope you are inspired by these possibilities. We love the challenge of creating the perfect artwork for the perfect place. There is always a "wow" factor when a specially designed piece brings a location alive.
17th century farmhouse mullioned window ~ beauty ever changing with the light
The same window is shown in each photo illustrating how it alters with the lighting and time of day
Family celebrating 60th birthday
Celebrating a Grandfather's 60th birthday : the number 60 appears in abstract form top right, the grandparents, grandchildren and the family dog all feature. The year of birth for each grandchild appears in Roman numerals in the "grass" they run across, and the year of birth for each grandparent appears as Roman numerals as the "clothing" design on their silhouettes.
Barn conversion niche
Set into a niche opening in an ancient , deep wall between two rooms. Beautiful, and different, when viewed from either room.
Beautiful take on a "stained glass window" for a bespoke new build home.
This duet of trees was specially made to grace a window high in the eves of a bespoke new build house. The tree silhouettes are inspired by trees in a neighbouring field seen from this lovely home . Those with a Derbyshire connection will be able to pick out Crich Stand, a local hill top monument, on the sky line of the left hand panel : this was also specified as part of the commission giving the art work a wonderful sense of place. This glass duet changes colour with every shift of light.
I saw this lovely door panel in situ for the first time when I went to photograph it on a rainy, cold Winter day. I was so happy to see how it transformed the front of this lovely stone cottage ~ a real focal point to the cottage and its garden, singing out welcome and homeliness. Even better, the owners of the cottage love it too.
Truly heart warming!

Window to create a " view "
Blocking an uninspiring view of just a brick wall was the top priority for this commission, replacing it with a beautiful " landscape" of light and rhythm. There is a hint of ammonite fossil in there too, as the homeowner is a Geologist.
Windows that are beautiful by day and by night
With light falling upon them at night, the precious metals fused into the glass shine out with texture and vibrancy against the darkness outside ~ unlike traditional stained glass, which just goes dull at night.
Created for an English couple returning to the UK after many years living and working in Switzerland. We worked from favourite photographs provided by the couple to symbolise all that they love about Switzerland.
