STAINED GLASS

Please email or phone us to make an appointment to discuss your ideas for a stained glass commission. All enquires are welcome.

STAINED GLASS: Welcome

BRIDPORT GLASS STUDIO

Stained glass and traditional lights are created for private clients and for those commissioning for ecclesiastic buildings. We consider the period of a building and the local architecture working in many styles including:

MEDIEVAL   NEO-GOTHIC   VICTORIAN    EDWARDIAN   ART DECO   ART NOUVEAU   ARTS & CRAFT   BAROQUE


Projects vary, from a simple leaded light grid of colour-tinted clear glass to panels containing detailed paintwork and mouth-blown antique glass to replicating painted detail of birds, branches and flowers, typically set in roundels or grided panels.


Alternatively you can take a contemporary approach and develop a contemporary design brief to match both architecture and interiors.

We offer the following decorative processes;

traditional glass painting, silver staining, enamelling, sand-blasting. gold and silver gilding, fusing with frits and slumping glass, 

The commission process begins with a free consultation and price options are discussed at this first stage. Whatever the project, the client is involved in selecting a glass and colour palette with the designer before making begins.

ARTS & CRAFTS


Victorian, Edwardian, Art Deco, Art Nouveau, Bauhaus, Neo-Gothic, Medieval

We create panels in a wide variety of styles of stained glass.


This is an example of glass from The Arts & Crafts Movement; etched flashed glass, painted detail and the use of mouth-blown antique glass and silverstain. The repeat floral patterns are intricate and of the highest quality in paintwork.

HERALDRY

Heraldry and Coats of Arms can be translated into glass as a centre-piece in a window design or just as a piece to hang in front of a window. This process often involves traditional processes of etching into mouth-blown glass and intricate hand painting which is kiln-fired. Pieces suitable for hanging make unique gifts and can be delivered internationallly.

Each piece of work is priced according to the following factors; size, glass and decorative processes, intricacy of leading and intricacy of paintwork. Prices start at £500 + p&p

COMTEMPORARY DESIGN

Stained glass is tailor made to suit our clients aesthetics and we design in consideration to architectural setting. These images show a stained glass fanlight commission for an entrance of a manor house in Horrabridge, Somerset on the western slopes of Dartmoor. Although the entrance is Georgian in style our clients wanted a bright and dynamic design which drew on a symbol from nature and the arts and crafts tradition to create something to complement their own collection of art. We drew up a design and showed our clients glass samples of antique mouth-blown glass and some streaky art glass and created a very unique piece which works in harmony with the architecture and interiors.
