Oneoffs Stained Glass
As a stained glass artist and designer, I’m drawn to nature and light. I work from my workshop in Looe, Cornwall with my many animal friends around me – my dogs, Jelly and Billy tripod (he has 3 legs), my birds and my chickens, who all came to me as rescues. In my work I use both traditional stained glass techniques: cut glass with lead and silver stain and trace painting, which is a true love of mine.
The first stage is the production of a full size working drawing, which clients love to see, because it gives them a real flavour of what I’m going to produce for them in glass. Using this drawing as a template, I select the glass and cut it. Each piece of glass is then individually painted using glass paint. I fire the paint into the surface by heating the glass to approximately 650° centigrade in my kiln. The results give my work more of a 3D depth than the average stained glass. You need to see my work in person to understand how it plays with the light and perspective, but these images will at least give you an idea.
I’m skilled and experienced in traditional and contemporary stained glass techniques for leaded windows and restorations, including Grade 1 listed buildings.
These skills include:
- Kiln work
- Fusing of glass
- Copper foil (devised by Louis Comfort Tiffany)
- Traditional lead and lead cement
- Excellent tea making
If you are looking for a bespoke window (even in double glazing), mirror or decorative piece, please contact me as I enjoy working closely with each and every customer, be they private individuals or businesses. I work to a high standard of finish and make customer satisfaction my number one priority.
