Leaded Light

Leadlight and Stained Glass Panels

I specialise in handcrafted leaded light panels created using traditional techniques with hand cut textured and/or coloured glass and soldered lead came.

The panels are used in all sorts of ways:

  • Door panels

  • Fanlights

  • Internal partitions

  • Architectural

  • Repairs and restoration

  • Garden structures

  • Garden ornaments

  • Stand-alone Art

My process

Leaded lights panels are beautiful, tactile, versatile and last for decades - if not centuries - so I really take time working with you on the design to make sure we create something we really love. The process usually goes something like this:

  1. Initial chat about requirements and project details.

  2. Discuss design - sometimes you'll have a pretty clear idea of what you want, sometimes not! I can show examples of different styles, look at the location (type of building, exiting glass, colours, how the light falls etc), and together we'll agree on a design 'brief'.

  3. Photos and measurements of where the panels are going. I can also provide a quote for the panels - there is no obligation up to this point.

  4. I'll create a design with a few options and present them back to you, usually as C.A.D. designs with glass textures added, and a 'mock up' visualisation of what it will look like in place.

  5. Design tweaks and amendments until we are both really happy. I'll also show examples of types, textures and colours of glass to help our final choices.

  6. I craft the panels! This usually takes 5-10 days.

  7. Where possible I will deliver the panels by hand - but I can courier them to anywhere safely using custom made wooden boxes. I do not normally fit the panels, but I can advise if needed.
