COMBINING ART AND ARTISAN
Welcome to Orchid Stained Glass,
the home of beautiful, original works of glass.
I combine 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 my studio near Woking in Surrey I use 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.

We are very pleased with the vase thank you, it made a very special gift. My friend really loved it, she said it is ‘beautiful and so special being unique’ . Thank you againTB, Woking, Surrey
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.TB, West End, Surrey
A bespoke stained glass panel with a specific theme proved to be the perfect gift for my partner. I am so pleased that Linda was able to make this for me; the panel is lovelyEB, Horsell, Surrey
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!RB, Surrey
