There are good modern designs for old buildings.
There are good traditional designs for new buildings.
That’s why we do not impose a “studio-style” on the work we do for you, except that we will do it well.
So the stained glass we make for you will begin with a one-off sketch design which meets your brief and is specifically prepared for your chosen building.
And the cost?
It will take time to calculate the cost.
It isn’t something we can give you over the phone in response to a 5-minute talk.
First, we must understand what you want. You are not the same as other clients. Your home or office or church is not the same as other people’s.
When we understand what you want, we’ll put a figure to the materials and work.
Here’s what works best:
- We meet.
- We prepare your sketch design – at this point we can estimate the cost i.e. give you a range.
- We prepare a full-sized design. Now we can give you a firm quote.
Styles of glass painting
Stained glass in any style.
For example, two windows of four for the Chapel of the Holy Spirit at Wellington College, Crowthorne:
Here is a detail from a traditional memorial piece we made:
Another time, a client asked for something from the Fibonacci Sequence, hence the spiral lead-lines:
A different client mentioned J.M.W. Turner and the “majesty of the fading day”:
Some projects are large. This is from a set of 16 stained-glass skylights:
And here the client wanted a small sculpture for his mantelpiece, incorporating three painted owls:
A modern window for a large bedroom window that overlooked an ancient wood:
A different client wanted two wall-lights like this one here:
Or consider these traditional windows for Polebrook Hall:
And this landing window for a crime novelist – here’s part of it:
A family crest:
One section (out of five) from a tall and abstract window:
Another abstract window, this one referencing a local myth about a mermaid and a jackdaw:
The point is: different styles for different clients for different buildings.
That’s why we don’t have a catalogue; it is always a case of designing then making a window which fits your brief and looks perfect in your chosen building.
