tained glass is an ancient craft that flowered in the twelfth century when improved building methods had allowed fine churches and cathedrals to be built. The techniques used then are largely unchanged even to this day but, of course, the quality of the glass has improved immeasurably. Back then the primary purpose of the stained glass windows was not to admit light but rather to control it. No doubt the clergy took a dim view of the congregation gazing out of the windows during the sermon. Although traditionally made in flat panels and used as windows, these days modern stained glass is used extensively in the home, as door panels, transoms, lamp shades and beautiful art objects.
Now you can commission a piece from me and incorporate your own design ideas if you wish, anything from window or door panels to simple decorative items. I only use the finest materials and can guarantee first class craftsmanship at an affordable price.
For more details drop me a line at the email address below and if you are in London why not visit my stall in Spitalfields Market to see examples of my work, and have a chat about any project you are considering.
I am there every other Thursday and I look forward to hearing from you soon!
