This is a new bespoke stained glass scheme for the internal porch of a large 1920’s residence in the High Peak District (where we completed a much larger staircase window late in 2016). Situated within the same central lobby space as the staircase window and designed and produced to compliment in both style and execution, the 13 panel scheme features stylized intertwining leaves and berries along with a number of gold and bullfinches. The glass we used was predominantly mouth-blown Lambert’s from Germany, giving the whole piece great vibrancy of colour, clarity and movement.
As the clients dog had previously leapt straight through the original glazing within one of the lower door panels, it was decided that additional protection would be a good idea. Toughened glass was installed on both sides of each of the six door panels to meet this requirement. Thankfully the visual impact of this “dog proofing” on the scheme as a whole is minimal.
Our images show the finished panels installed and the original draft design proposal.
