Marbellous Lamp

Combining art
and artisan

Welcome to Orchid Stained Glass, the home of beautiful, original works of glass.

Artist Linda Banks combines traditional techniques, strong designs and glorious coloured glasses to create truly individual pieces, including lighting, mirrors, leaded windows, wall panels, free-standing panels, terrariums, decorated vases, tableware and jewellery.

At her studio near Woking in Surrey she uses methods including ‘Tiffany’ copper foil, lead came work and fused glass, married with beautiful stained glass, to create bespoke, handmade heirloom commissions and gifts to treasure.

Green Marbellous Lamp

I am absolutely thrilled with my own 'Marbellous' lamp shade. Linda recreated her original idea, adapting it to match my colour scheme. It makes a unique, artistic and welcoming light in my hallway. It has made many of my visitors quite envious!

Now the mirror is up on the wall we can truly appreciate how lovely it is. The colours are lovely and the design is just what I asked for, the protruding stamens just finish it off beautifully. Thank you so much, we will treasure it forever.

Blessings for your professional, artistic and open-minded approach to creating our stunning centrepiece between our kitchen and bathroom
