Dulwich - New leaded glass door set

Fitted August 2009. The client's contractor has arranged for the missing timber glazing bars that divide the main space into the central octagon and 4 corner panels to be reinstated in the door. The leaded panels were then made from templates. The patterns include hand-spun glass roundels in dark violet glass.

Croydon stained glass

Installed August 2009. Here we made a new centre panel - with the 2 doves, and several new border pieces. Previous the original leaded panels had been replaced with plain glass.

These 3 views - from the inside looking out, from the outside, and pre-installation against a difusing background, show just how variable the appearance of the same glass is under different conditions of light.

We particulaly like the aquamarine 'waterglass' in the centre, which is streaked with blue.
