Whether you prefer a traditional or a contemporary stained glass window design, get in touch and we can work together to make your dreams reality. In addition, damaged or broken stained glass windows can be repaired and existing stained glass windows matched.

Take the first step...

If you have an idea for a new stained glass window made especially for you, need a repair to an existing window, or would like to discuss a bespoke lampshade or any other custom creation made from stained glass, please click the button below or call 01329 830172 (just provide your name to get through) for an initial chat or quotation, without obligation.

Stained glass: not just for windows…

 There is no doubt that stained glass windows look fabulous, but my website pages showcase many other creations made from beautiful, coloured glass. Why not consider a handmade lampshade, wall art, framed pictures, freestanding panels, Quirky Birds and all sorts of funky sculptures? There is something for every taste and budget.

What my clients say…

 

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.
