A new stained glass commission is very personal piece of art and architecture for your home. Choosing the right design is critical as the style needs to be sympathetic to your taste but also in keeping with your home. If you have an Edwardian or Art Deco house it is important to consider the type of designs that would be architecturally suitable. A bit like re-installing original fireplaces high quality architectural stained glass can add value as an ‘original feature’ to your home.
The process of creating a new commission involves starting from a customer idea. The idea can be developed from historical pattern-books or from looking at similar buildings. The next stage is to draw up a ‘to size’ cartoon and choosing colours. Once this has been completed the glass is cut to size and the process of construction takes place which involves leading up, soldering, cementing, applying whiting, drying, polishing up to create a beautiful stained glass leaded light.
